Hi, 

 

Only package difference. 

If you have all the original design files, generate .pof Programming Files with the previous .sof. With which you can program the device. 

Can use Quartus 13 or older version. 

 

For the new design, both the part numbers are not recommended.

thanks for your response.  

and so far ,I have no original source file . I just want to rework a customer board built with epf10k50vqi240-2 and epc1pi8 ,I found the epc1pi8 is down and no more epc1pi8 is available in market. I just found some epc1pi8n. 

I just copy the original POF file from the good one/epc1pi8 to epc1pi8n by a universal programmer, 

and does the epc1pi8n work as its orignial one ? or make the epf10k50vqi240-2 work well as before?

Hi, 

 

Better try and get know. 

Both devices are same, only package difference so I'm not seeing any issues. 

It should work fine for new designs, but for existing .pof file we need to try and see.

ok, the Epc1pi8 is compatible with epc1pi8n, and the fpga epf10k50v is down too, so this mislead my judgement. 

thanks a lot.
