Hi all,just used an 5CEA4 in an F484, and wanted to upgrade to a bigger FPGA. And noticed, that the bigger devices don't have the bank 2A at all. How is this pin migration work, if a lot of the pins are not used at all in the bigger devices? What am I missing, if I like to be able to use different devices in the same pinout?
Have you specified any migration parts in you Quartus project? Quartus allows you to specify a number of footprint compatible parts in a project and will check/route to a pinout suitable for all parts specified. You will still compile for a specific part. However, it'll ensure an appropriate pinout for use in any of them. I wouldn't worry about which banks each part does or doesn't have. Although that might be a problem it isn't necessarily so.Cheers, Alex
