Need to know GPIO usage on Bank 1B and Bank 8


Dear All,

I have designed a board having Intel MAX10 10M25DAF484I7G device on the board. The board design has been frozen and i am trying to submit gerbers to manufacturing. 

I was reading M10-ARCHITECTURE guide and i found that if we are using dedicated ADCs, then bank 1B cannot be used as GPIOs and Bank 8 have limitations on percentage of pins available for usage.

I am using the dedicated ADCs in my design and i have connected GPIOs on 1B bank (for 2.5V IO levels).

I have provided 3.3V voltage levels for VCCIO8 pins and i have used all the GPIOs available on Bank 8 for 3.3V IO levels. 

Since the schematics are confidential, i cannot upload the schematics here. Please send me a email to my email id so that i can send the partial schematics for review purposes.

The matter is most urgent and i would be grateful if somebody can assist.


Thanks and regards,
