I have downloaded the VIP example design for Cyclone V. Unfortunately many of the cores such as the color space convertor have not been updated to the VIP II version (Color Space Convertor II). I am manually trying to replace the blocks, trying to match the parameter settings from the original Color Space Convertor. The gui values have changed so much that it is hard to port the parameter values to the new gui.
Ok, so I am punting on the Cyclone V reference design, and tried to open the UHD Video Reference Design which targets the Arria 10 GX.
I get a ton of errors when opening in the design in 19.1.
I am now trying to open Platform designer and update those to see if that will fix things. This is amazingly bad, as this is where we tell customers where to go to get started!!!!
You should probably read this document:
Intel is doing the improvement but only applicable for latest Gen 10 FPGA product families like Cyclone 10 GX, Arria 10 and Stratix 10.
- User can easily generate example design from the IP core directly based on whatever setting that user configured in the IP core.
- There also won't be concern with Quartus version upgrade issue as user can now generate example design from every newer Quartus version.
Unfortunately it's not easy to manage and convert legacy product design as you are aware now.
It's better to convince customer to migrate to latest FPGA product family for better support.
Thanks and appreciate your understanding on this matter.
