Porting system architecture from old generation Cyclone FPGA to new Cyclone 10 LP

Hello,

I would like to port an old Cyclone EP1C12 FPGA Architecture to a new Cyclone 10 LP FPGA. Including software for the Nios. Is this in general possible with low effort? In addition, for PS configuration, a AT89C2051

as update controller was used. Is the interfacing during this genrations still the same or do I have to change also the signalling for PS configuration?

Hi Dirk, Basically, it is possible to migrate the RTL design from old to new devices. However, if the design consists of Intel FPGA IP, i am afraid we cant. The reason is because new device will use latest and updated Intel FPGA IP. Moreover, the pin assignment is totally not the same. Thus in short, we can migrate RTL logic but not IP, setting and pin assignment. Regards, YL
