|Name||CompactFlash+ Interface (AN 492)|
|Description||CompactFlash cards are used to store and transport several forms of digital information (data, audio, pictures) and software between a wide span of digital systems. The CompactFlash association introduced the CF+ concept to enhance the operation of CompactFlash cards with I/O devices and magnetic disk data storage apart from flash memory. The CF+ card is a small form factor card that includes compact flash storage cards, magnetic disk cards, and various I/O cards that are available in the market, such as serial cards, ethernet cards, and wireless cards. The CF+ card includes an embedded controller that manages data storage, retrieval and error correction, power management, and clock control. CF+ cards can be used with passive adapters in PC-Card type-II or type-III sockets. |
Nowadays, many consumer products such as cameras, PDAs, printers, and laptops have a socket that accepts CompactFlash and CF+ memory cards. In addition to storage devices, this socket can also be used to interface I/O devices that use the CF+ interface.
This design example uses a CF+ device, which functions in two modes: PC Card ATA using I/O mode and PC Card ATA using memory mode. The third optional mode, True IDE mode, is not considered. The MAX 10 FPGA operates as the host controller and acts as a bridge between the host and the CF+ card.

Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.
Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.
Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.
At the command-line, type the following command:
Once the process completes, then type:
