Using bidirectional buffer on MAX-V

Hi all, 

I would like to implement 16bit multiplexed bus on MAX-V, therefore I need bidirectional buffer for the data. 

Since I am using schematic design, i tried the primitive ALT_BIDIR_BUF but unfortunately the compiler said that it is not supported by MAX-V. 

I found also the megafunction ALTIOBUF_BIDIR but I actually don't know if it is OK for my implementation. I also don't know how to use it. 

Any help will be appreciated.

Yes, the ALTIOBUF_BIDIR is the right megafunction to use. See the "i/o buffer (altiobuf) ip core user guide (https://www.altera.com/literature/ug/ug_altiobuf.pdf)" for details on how to use and configure it. 

 

Cheers, 

Alex
