1.2. Setting Up the ASE Environment

Refer the Intel Acceleration Stack Quick Start Guide for Intel Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA to install and setup the hardware and software components of the Acceleration Stack. Your system must meet the requirements mentioned in the Getting Started section of the Intel Acceleration Stack Quick Start Guide for Intel Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA.
Set the following environment variables before running ASE:
  1. For VCS:
    $ export VCS_HOME=<path to VCS installation directory>
    $ export PATH=$VCS_HOME/bin:$PATH
    Figure 1. Installation Directory Structure (VCS)
    Make sure your system has a valid VCS license.

  2. For Modelsim SE/QuestaSim:
    $ export MTI_HOME=<path to Modelsim installation directory>
    $ export PATH=$MTI_HOME/linux_x86_64/:$MTI_HOME/bin/:$PATH
    Figure 2. Installation Directory Structure (Modelsim/Questa)
    Make sure your system has a valid Modelsim SE/QuestaSim license.

  3. Ensure that the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition has been exported:
    $ echo $QUARTUS_HOME
