Generating encrypted bitstream

bonelli

Hello,

 

My board is using Arria 10 + MT25QU256 (ASx4 mode). I'm using Quartus 20.1, standard licence.

 

I'm carefully following this topic

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/documentation/bhc1410500804155.html#bhc14105007...

 

But at step 7.i, there is no " Bitstream Encryption" dialog box and no "Generate encrypted bitstream" available but only an option for compression.

 

Also, what should be indicated for "programming file type"? None of jbc, jam, svf or ekp file formats are available.

 

Any help appreciated

Kind regards

Hi,


Thank you for contacting Intel community.


Per you description, I believe you have followed the right steps.


  1. Can you attached the screenshot of SOF file properties?
  2. Are you using a temporary license?


Regards,

Aiman

I'm using the standard edition of Quartus, using the licence server of my company.

Hi,


By license server from your company, did you mean license file obtain from Intel FPGA?

I have an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE pointing to the license server, allowing Quartus to run in standard mode. Do I need another licence to unlock the encryption tools?
