1. Introduction to Intel® FPGA IP Cores

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 21.3
Intel and strategic IP partners offer a broad portfolio of configurable IP cores optimized for Intel FPGA devices.

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software installation includes the Intel® FPGA IP library. Integrate optimized and verified Intel® FPGA IP cores into your design to shorten design cycles and maximize performance. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software also supports integration of IP cores from other sources. Use the IP Catalog (Tools > IP Catalog) to efficiently parameterize and generate synthesis and simulation files for your custom IP variation. The Intel® FPGA IP library includes the following types of IP cores:

Basic functions Interface protocols
Bridges and adapters Low power functions
DSP functions Memory interfaces and controllers
Intel FPGA interconnect Processors and peripherals

This document provides basic information about parameterizing, generating, upgrading, and simulating stand-alone IP cores in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
