3.2.1.4. Verilog HDL Macros

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software fully supports Verilog HDL macros, which you can define with the 'define compiler directive in your source code. You can also define macros in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software or on the command line.

To set Verilog HDL macros at the command line for the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition synthesis (quartus_syn) executable, use the following format:

quartus_syn <PROJECT_NAME> --set=VERILOG_MACRO=a=2

This command adds the following new line to the project .qsf file:

set_global_assignment -name VERILOG_MACRO "a=2"

To avoid adding this line to the project .qsf, add this option to the quartus_syn command:

--write_settings_files=off
