Can industrial devices use the same configuration file as their commercial counterpart?

I'd like to substitute an industrial grade Cyclone V part in an existing design due to better availability. Do these parts need a different configuration file, or can I use them interchangeably? The specific part numbers are:

5CGXFC9E6F31C7N 

5CGXFC9E6F31I7N

where the only difference in the part number is "I" vs "C"

 

Thanks and regards,

Gabor

Same configuration file. Same die. Just tested differently to guarantee operation over a wider temp range.

Thanks for the help. That was my guess, but I didn't want to take a chance and then find out that the device ID is different, requiring a tool re-run. At the moment I have the config file built for the commercial part and no license to re-build the design.
