3.2. Specifying the IP Parameters and Options

The IP parameter editor allows you to quickly configure your custom IP variation. Use the following steps to specify IP options and parameters in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.

  1. If you do not already have an Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition project in which to integrate your F-Tile Serial Lite IV Intel® FPGA IP, you must create one.
    1. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition, click File > New Project Wizard to create a new Quartus Prime project, or File > Open Project to open an existing Quartus Prime project. The wizard prompts you to specify a device.
    2. Specify the device family Intel® Agilex™ and select a production F-tile device that meets the speed grade requirements for the IP.
    3. Click Finish.
  2. In the IP Catalog, locate and select F-Tile Serial Lite IV Intel® FPGA IP . The New IP Variation window appears.
  3. Specify a top-level name for your new custom IP variation. The parameter editor saves the IP variation settings in a file named <your_ip> .ip.
  4. Click OK. The parameter editor appears.
  5. Specify the parameters for your IP variation. Refer to the Parameter section for information about F-Tile Serial Lite IV Intel® FPGA IP parameters.
  6. Optionally, to generate a simulation testbench or compilation and hardware design example, follow the instructions in the Design Example User Guide.
  7. Click Generate HDL. The Generation dialog box appears.
  8. Specify output file generation options, and then click Generate. The IP variation files generate according to your specifications.
    1. Select the IP-XACT option to create an IP-XACT representation of your generated system.
      This selection generates the <ip_name>.ipxact file during the IP generation. The .ipxact file contains generic information about your IP. The IP variant-specific information such as reset and register values may vary across the IP variants.
  9. Click Finish. The parameter editor adds the top-level .ip file to the current project automatically. If you are prompted to manually add the .ip file to the project, click Project > Add/Remove Files in Project to add the file.
  10. After generating and instantiating your IP variation, make appropriate pin assignments to connect ports and set any appropriate per-instance RTL parameters.
