SD configuration for STRATIX10

Jamil

Hello,

 

We are using STRATIX10 FPGA-Boards (1SG280LN3F43E3VG) since oct/2018 for ASIC prototyping. We were used in the past to configure the devices (STRATIXIV) via SD cards. Since we are using STRATIX10 devices, we must configure the devices via USB Blaster. It is really inconvenient to handle with 30 boards in this way. We need absolutly the posibility to use the SD card configuration.

Our supplier told us, that INTEL has to deliver a Firmware code for a coprocessor on the FPGA.

Does some body here has any Idea, when INTEL can deliver this Firmware code?

 

Thanks

Jamil

Hi Jamil, I dont realli understand what do you mean by firmware code for a coprocessor. Speaking about programming using SD Card, we do have this feature in Stratix 10. https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/stratix-10/ug-s10-config... (Page 102) Regards, YL

Hi SooYL

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

On page 8 you'll find the following note:

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/stratix-10/ug-s10-config...

Note: The SD/MMC configuration scheme is not supported in the current release.

 

Do you have any idea, when the configuration via SD-card will be supported?

 

Thank you

Jamil
