1.8.2. Targeting a Device that Has a Different Package Size

To target a device that has a different package size from the current device, you must edit the top.qsf, flat.qsf, and base.qsf Intel® Quartus® Prime Settings Files that are in the Custom Platform.

To update your Custom Platform, perform the following tasks:

  1. Change target device in the Intel® Quartus® Prime project by editing the top.qsf file.
  2. Comment out any location constraints and any PR regions in the flat.qsf and base.qsf files. Location constraints and PR regions will be recreated when you rebuild the new package variant.
  3. Edit the device.tcl file to specify the new target device. Change the device model file listed in the board_spec.xml file. You may find the device model file for the target device in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software installation directory. Prior to updating the Custom Platform, the device model file is 10ax115h3f34e2sg_dm.xml.
  4. Regenerate the Custom Platform.
