Selectable I/O Standards in Full Flex Devices – KBA86937

Version: **

 

Question: How do you configure the I/O standards for the ports in full flex devices?

 

Answer:

There are two port standard pins available for each of the ports, left and right, which can be configured to select the I/O standard of the port. The HIGH/LOW conditions of the PORTSTD[0:1] pins will determine the standard for the I/O pins of that particular port. Table 1 gives the list of standards available for the I/Os and the corresponding states for the PORTSTD[0:1] pins.

Table 1. I/O Standards and Their Corresponding States

                                                                                                                           
     PORTSTD1     PORTSTD0     I/O Standard
     VSS     VSS     LVTTL
     VSS     VTTL     HSTL
     VTTL     VSS     2.5V LVCMOS
     VTTL     VTTL     1.8 LVCMOS

The PORTSTD[0:1] pins will be operated on LVTTL. Here VTTL stands for the 3.3 V LVTTL supply itself. For example, if you need the 1.8 LVCMOS standard for your I/O pins, then you need to connect PORTSTD[0:1] pins to the 3.3 V supply.
