Is anybody able to tell me why I do not see "Encrypt bitstream" option in Convert Programming Files window? I see only Compress. What should I do to make it available? My device is 10M02169SCU and bigger (10M04, 10M08). Thank you in advance.

Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel community.

 

Have you follow MAX 10 configuration userguide below?

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/max-10/ug_m10_config.pdf

 

Let me know if you need further information.

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Aiman

Hello Aiman, thank you for your reply. Yes, I have tried steps described in that manual, however, I still have only "compress" option. I assume that here should be also "encrypt", which is not present. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need any license for that? And, does this work in Lite edition of Quartus? Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hi,

Yes. You need to have a license in order to encrypt bitstream for Max10 as it was consider as a security for the device.

Is it a regular license, which I can get by applying in self-service license center, or is it something special? If it is something special, how can I apply for it, and how much does it cost? I have received .dat file from Intel, but for some reasons it cannot be used - look at picture attached. Subscription expiration shows date in the past. I assume it is a regular license, not for encryption?

Sorry to tag to this message. I don't know how to get tech support other than from here. I'd like to get the license to enable encryption for my Quartus Lite. 20.1.1.  as well. Please help.
