Using "remote" configuration mode in "standard" configured FPGA

I have a design which is updated remotely using the Altera Remote Update module. To make this function correctly I need to set Assignments->Device->Device and Pin Options->Configuration Mode to "remote".

Would there be any problem with using this bitstream in standard mode ? Put another way, if the remote option is set does the FPGA expect something in order to function correctly or will it operate normally.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,


Thank you for contacting Intel community.


If you wanted to use RSU (Remote System Update), you will need to set the setting as 'remote', if not then set the setting as 'normal'.


However, if you are using RSU, you cannot set it as normal due to bitstream will set the 'option bit' whether bitstream is 'remote' or 'normal'.


Thanks.


Regards,

Aiman
