EP20K200EFC484-3/-2

Jump to solution

What are the differences between EP20K200EFC484-3(N) and EP20K200EFC484-2(N) ?

We're having some EoL issues for "-3" MPN, and we're wondering if we can use some faster FPGAs "-2" suffix as replacement. Would a program written for "-3" work on the faster variant "-2" ?

Hi Florin,

 

You are recommended to re-program the device since there were still some slightly different between -2 speed grade and -3 speed grade device according to the device datasheet.

 

Thank you

Hi Florin,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Community. To know the difference between the EP20K200EFC484-3(N) and

EP20K200EFC484-2(N) is the speed grade. For details, kindly refer to the APEX 20K datasheet:

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ds/archives/apex.pdf

 

Next, please be noted that APEX 20K device families were obsolete since 2017 according to PDN1619.

https://www.intel.fr/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/pcn/pdn1619.pdf

There are limited support on the obsolete part.

 

Thank you

 

Regards,

Chia Ling

Hello.

   Thanks a lot for you reply.

From what I saw, there is no big difference in speed of -2 compared to -3.

If the source files for FPGA programming were done for -3 speed variant, do you think the same source files will work on -2 chip, without further programming adjustments?

 

Regards,
