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!!!!
New to Intel PSG. I am surprised that the upgrade process is so difficult. This is not what I am used to, coming from the other guy. I would strongly suggest that Intel keep there designs current with the latest tools release.
Intel is doing the improvement but only applicable for latest Gen 10 FPGA product families like Cyclone 10 GX, Arria 10 and Stratix 10.
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.
