Quad SPI Flash, U5
|I2C Configuration EEPROM, U9|
Table 1: Initial delivery state of programmable devices on the module
The FPGA configuration for Intel MAX 10 FPGAs can be stored through JTAG interface either in external configuration device (QSPI flash memory U5) or on the FPGA itself since the Intel MAX 10 FPGA offers non-volatile memory on chip. The FPGA configuration is loaded from the non-volatile memory when the board is powered up.
To configure the FPGA directly, the JTAG interface can be used to configure the FPGA volatile, means the configuration is lost after power off.

Power and Power-On Sequence
To power-up a module, power supply with minimum current capability of 1A is recommended.
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 TEI0003 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:
|FPGA||Design||Typical Power, 25C ambient|
|Intel MAX 10 10M08 FPGA SoC||Not configured||TBD*|
Table 12: Module power consumption
*TBD - To Be Determined.
Actual power consumption depends on the FPGA design and ambient temperature.
There is no specific or special power-on sequence, just one single power source is needed.
