Maximum Allowed Overshoot and Undershoot Voltage
During transitions, input signals may overshoot to the voltage listed in the following table and undershoot to –2.0 V for input
currents less than 100 mA and periods shorter than 20 ns.
The maximum allowed overshoot duration is specified as a percentage of high time over the lifetime of the device. A DC signal
is equivalent to 100% duty cycle.
For example, a signal that overshoots to 2.70 V for LVDS I/O can only be at 2.70 V for ~4% over the lifetime of the device.
(2) The maximum current allowed through any LVDS I/O bank pin when the device is not turned on or during power-up/power-down
conditions is 10 mA.
(3) Total current per LVDS I/O bank must not exceed 100 mA.
(4) Voltage level must not exceed 1.89 V.
(5) Applies to all I/O standards and settings supported by LVDS I/O banks, including single-ended and differential I/Os.
(6) Applies only to LVDS I/O banks. 3 V I/O banks are not covered under this specification and must be implemented as per the power
sequencing requirement. For more details, refer to AN 692: Power Sequencing Considerations for Intel Cyclone® 10 GX, Intel Arria 10,

DC Characteristics
Supply Current and Power Consumption
Intel offers two ways to estimate power for your design—the Excel-based Early Power Estimator (EPE) and the Intel Quartus
Prime Power Analyzer feature.
Use the Excel-based EPE before you start your design to estimate the supply current for your design. The EPE provides a
magnitude estimate of the device power because these currents vary greatly with the usage of the resources.
The Intel Quartus Prime Power Analyzer provides better quality estimates based on the specifics of the design after you
complete place-and-route. The Power Analyzer can apply a combination of user-entered, simulation-derived, and estimated
signal activities that, when combined with detailed circuit models, yield very accurate power estimates.

KDB link: How do I compensate for the jitter of PLL cascading or non-dedicated clock path for Intel Arria 10 PLL reference
clock?
For the Intel Quartus Prime software version prior to 17.1, the fPLL output may experience additional jitter. The
additional jitter occurs if you source the reference clock from a cascaded PLL output, global clock, or core clock. To
compensate for the jitter, the designs require additional constraints. This issue has been fixed in the Intel Quartus
Prime software version 17.1.
(65) A high input jitter directly affects the PLL output jitter. To have low PLL output clock jitter, you must provide a clean clock source with
jitter < 120 ps.

Periphery Performance Specifications
This section describes the periphery performance, high-speed I/O, and external memory interface.
Actual achievable frequency depends on design and system specific factors. Ensure proper timing closure in your design and
perform HSPICE/IBIS simulations based on your specific design and system setup to determine the maximum achievable
frequency in your system.
High-Speed I/O Specifications
Table 47. High-Speed I/O Specifications for Intel Arria 10 Devices
When serializer/deserializer (SERDES) factor J = 3 to 10, use the SERDES block.
For LVDS applications, you must use the PLLs in integer PLL mode.
You must calculate the leftover timing margin in the receiver by performing link timing closure analysis. You must consider the board skew margin, transmitter
channel-to-channel skew, and receiver sampling margin to determine the leftover timing margin.
The Intel Arria 10 devices support the following output standards using true LVDS output buffer types on all I/O banks:
True RSDS output standard with data rates of up to 360 Mbps
True mini-LVDS output standard with data rates of up to 400 Mbps

(72) This speed grade is applicable to VCC = 0.95 V specifications.
(78) The minimum specification depends on the clock source (for example, the PLL and clock pin) and the clock routing resource (global,
regional, or local) that you use. The I/O differential buffer and serializer do not have a minimum toggle rate.
(79) The maximum ideal data rate is the SERDES factor (J) x the PLL maximum output frequency (fOUT) provided you can close the design
timing and the signal integrity meets the interface requirements.
(80) Not applicable for DIVCLK = 1.
(81) This applies to default pre-emphasis and VOD settings only.
(82) You can estimate the achievable maximum data rate for non-DPA mode by performing link timing closure analysis. You must consider

Trace Timing Characteristics
Table 75. Trace Timing Requirements for Intel Arria 10 Devices
To increase the trace bandwidth, Intel recommends routing the trace interface to the FPGA in the HPS Platform Designer (Standard) component. The FPGA trace
interface offers a 32-bit single data rate path that can be converted to double data rate to minimize FPGA I/O usage.
Depending on the trace module that you connect to the HPS trace interface, you may need to include board termination to achieve the maximum sampling speed
possible. Refer to your trace module datasheet for termination recommendations.

GPIO Interface
The general-purpose I/O (GPIO) interface has debounce circuitry included to remove signal glitches. The debounce clock
frequency ranges from 125 Hz to 32 kHz. The minimum pulse width is one debounce clock cycle and the minimum detectable
GPIO pulse width is 62.5 µs (at 32 kHz). Any pulses shorter than two debounce clock cycles are filtered by the GPIO
peripheral.
If the external signal is less than one clock cycle, the external signal is filtered. If the external signal is between one and two
clock cycles, the external signal may or may not be filtered depending on the phase of the signal. If the external signal is
more than two clock cycles, the external signal will not be filtered.
To ensure that the external signal is correctly debounced, set the debounce clock low enough so that by the time two
debounce clock periods have passed, the signal has settled.
Configuration Specifications
This section provides configuration specifications and timing for Intel Arria 10 devices.
POR Specifications
Power-on reset (POR) delay is defined as the delay between the time when all the power supplies monitored by the POR
circuitry reach the minimum recommended operating voltage to the time when the nSTATUS is released high and your device
is ready to begin configuration.

FPP Configuration Timing
DCLK-to-DATA[] Ratio (r) for FPP Configuration
Fast passive parallel (FPP) configuration requires a different DCLK-to-DATA[] ratio when you turn on encryption or the
compression feature.
Depending on the DCLK-to-DATA[] ratio, the host must send a DCLK frequency that is r times the DATA[] rate in byte per
second (Bps) or word per second (Wps). For example, in FPP ×16 where the r is 2, the DCLK frequency must be 2 times the
DATA[] rate in Wps.
Table 78. DCLK-to-DATA[] Ratio for Intel Arria 10 Devices
You cannot turn on encryption and compression at the same time for Intel Arria 10 devices.

Table 85. Configuration Bit Stream Sizes for Intel Arria 10 Devices
Use this table to estimate the file size before design compilation. Different configuration file formats, such as a hexadecimal file (.hex) or tabular text file (.ttf)
format, have different file sizes.
For the different types of configuration file and file sizes, refer to the Intel Quartus Prime software. However, for a specific version of the Intel Quartus Prime
software, any design targeted for the same device has the same uncompressed configuration file size.
I/O configuration shift register (IOCSR) is a long shift register that facilitates the device I/O peripheral settings. The IOCSR bit stream is part of the uncompressed
configuration bit stream, and it is specifically for the Configuration via Protocol (CvP) feature.
Uncompressed configuration bit stream sizes are subject to change for improvements and optimizations in the configuration algorithm.

Single-ended voltage referenced I/O standard The JEDEC standard for the SSTL and HSTL I/O defines both the AC and DC input signal values. The AC values indicate the
voltage levels at which the receiver must meet its timing specifications. The DC values indicate the voltage levels at which
the final logic state of the receiver is unambiguously defined. After the receiver input has crossed the AC value, the
receiver changes to the new logic state.
The new logic state is then maintained as long as the input stays beyond the DC threshold. This approach is intended to
provide predictable receiver timing in the presence of input waveform ringing.
