2.1. Installing the Quartus Prime software
The Intel® Quartus® Prime design software is a multiplatform design environment that easily adapts to your specific needs in all phases of FPGA, CPLD, and SoC designs. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software delivers the highest performance and productivity for Intel® FPGAs, CPLDs, and SoCs.
Design software must enable dramatically increased design productivity in order to take advantage of devices with multi-million logic elements with increased capabilities that provide designers with an ideal platform to meet next-generation design opportunities.
The new Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite design software includes everything needed to design for Intel® FPGAs, SoCs and CPLDs from design entry and synthesis to optimization, verification and simulation. The Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite software includes an additional Spectra-Q® engine that is optimized for Intel® Stratix® 10 and future devices. The Spectra-Q® engine enables new levels of design productivity for next generation programmable devices with a set of faster and more scalable algorithms, a hierarchical database infrastructure and a unified compiler technology.
Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite software is available in three editions based on specific design requirements: Pro, Standard, and Lite Edition.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition is optimized to support the advanced features in Intel's next generation FPGAs and SoCs and requires a paid license.
