Max input Voltage for single ended clock input (Stratix IV)

Hi

We have an existing board containing a EP4SE360F35I3 (F1152 PACKAGE). I am trying to determine the maximum input Voltage that can be safely be fed into a dedicated clock input pin (single ended). Specifically CLK8P and CLK10P. (CLK8P is bank 5C which is at 2.5V, CLK10P is bank 6C which is at 2.5V.)

 

The documentation states that a single-ended clock input should be treated as IO. In which case, from the table below (for a 2.5V Vccio) the maximum 'Vih' it can safely accept is 3.6V.

 

If you could confirm this for me it would be greatly appreciated?

 

Many thanks

Simon

Hi Simon,

 

May I know which document/user guide you are referring? (table above)

Please provide me the link.

Good morning

There seems to be a problem with the support system. I had already replied with this information but it did not appear in the support case.

The original support case has reference number 04561609, but the link in your email opens a different case without my replies in it.

Regards

Simon

Good morning and thank you for getting back to me.

The table was taken from the following document…

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/stratix-iv/stx4_siv54001...

 

Table 1-17 (Single-Ended I/O Standards) on page 1-12.

 

Best regards

Simon

​Good morning

I have not heard back from you and wondered if you were able to provide an answer.The table I included in the original post was taken from the following document...

ttps://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/stratix-iv/stx4_siv54001.pdf

Table 1-17 (Single-Ended I/O Standards) on page 1-12.

 

If you are able to advise it would be much appreciated.

Best regards

Hi Simon,

 

I'm apologize for late reply for this thread.

 

Yes, the User Guide you referring is the correct User Guide.

The recommended Vccio for I/O standard 2.5 V is (min 2.375, typical 2.5, max 2.625).

 

And if you are looking for input voltage, the table 1-17 is correct.

  • VIL = minimum -0.3V, maximum 0.7V
  • VIH = minimum 1.7V, maximum 3.6V

 

Thanks

​Hi,

Thanks you for getting back to me.

So just to confirm, we can safely feed a single ended clock signal (maximum 3.0V) into CLK8P and CLK10P?

(Both bank 5C and 6C use a Vccio of 2.5V.)

 

This should be safely within the ViH limit of 3.6V as shown in the table.

 

Best regards

Simon

​Hi

Thank you for confirming this for us.

That covers everything we need to know.
