OCT usage in Cyclone V

Hi,

I am using Cyclone V FPGA (5CGXFC5C7), and I want to use series 50ohm with calibration for signals.

In the design, the signals that needs the OCT function are in Bank 3B & 4A. The PIN_AE11 is used as the RZQ pad. They share the same VCCIO.

#1. I added the assignment in Editor.

#2. Should the ALTOCT be used at the same time?

#3. If the #2 is YES, I also tried to use ALTOCT, I instantiated a ALTOCT IP.

And I want to ask some question about this IP usage.

How could I connect the rzqin to pad AE11?I couldn't find the usage in UG-01003.

And if I only use the series termination function,just connect the seriesterminationcontrol to the signals that need OCT function directly?

How to deal with the parallelterminationcontrol signal?

 

 Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks!

Hi,


Thank you for reaching out to Intel FPGA Community.


Could you provide which Quartus version you are using?

Hi,


As per my understanding, to use the OCT function, the RZQ pins are connected to GND through an

external 100- or 240- reference resistor depending on the desired OCT impedance.


As for your question #2, you can just add the Weak Pull-Up Resistor column in the Editor table by customizing the table. And then you can just toggle the option to "On" for the pin that you desired to use the OCT function.

Hi,

 

The RZQ pin has connected to GND through an external 100ohm reference resistor on board.

From your reply, my understanding is the ALTOCT is not needed, and just do setting in Assignment Editor is ok.

And in Assignment Editor,I opened the OCT function for the pins like below.

But when I test on board, I found the signals gone on pins.

What I mean is, the pins work before I added the OCT function, but when I do the above setting, the pins doesn't work at all. Looks the setting disabled the pins function.

Could you help more on this? Not sure that my setting in Editor is correct.

 

Regards,

Lilian
