Boot Process

The FPGA configuration for Intel MAX 10 FPGAs can be stored through JTAG interface (using a POF file) on the FPGA itself since the Intel MAX 10 FPGA offers non-volatile memory on chip. The FPGA configuration is loaded from the MAX10 non-volatile CFM memory when the board is powered up.

To configure the FPGA directly, the JTAG interface can be used to configure the FPGA SRAM (using a SOF file), then the configuration is lost after power off.

Power and Power-On Sequence

Power Consumption

To power-up a module, power supply with minimum current capability of 1A is recommended.

Power Supply

The FPGA module can be power-supplied through Micro USB2 connector J9 with supply voltage 'USB-VBUS' or alternative through pin header J2 with supply voltage 'VIN'.

The TEI0010 module needs one single power supply of 5.0V nominal.

There are following dependencies how the initial voltage of the extern power supply is distributed to the on-board DCDC converters:
