SoCKit Embedded Memory

I have the Cyclone V SoCKit HERE : https://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?language=english&categoryno=165&no=816&partno=2 .My question is that how much memory do the M10K blocks provide? The page states that the device has : 

  • 5140 M10K memory blocks 

 

Now, if there truly are 5140 M10K memory blocks, then that amounts to a total storage capacity of 6.425, which seems a bit much.The user manual states there are "5140 Kbits of embedded memory" and makes no mention of 5140 M10K blocks.Are these two figures(5140 M10K blocks and 5140Kbits) equal? If not, which is the actual number? 

 

I have to implement a frame buffer and need around 1.7 Mbs of storage space

Each block has 10,240 bits. That device has 557 blocks (not the number Terasic appears to claim). So, plenty for your buffer. 

 

Refer to the docs:

Cheers,
