Hello,

I request the experts to answer the below questions:

1. What are the differences between EPCQ and EPCQA?

2. Which devices (EPCQ or EPCQA) are recommended for Cyclone10 FPGAs?

3. How do I decide the required size of EPCQ memory for my project? Can the required EPCQ size be predicted based on the size of .elf file or .jic etc.?

Thank you!

Hi NShan12,

1. EPCQA is a newer device family for further information: AN 822: Intel® FPGA Configuration Device Migration Guideline, https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/an/an822.pdf

2. The list of recommended configuration devices for Cyclone 10 LP/GX: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/programmable/configuration-device.html
