2.3.2. Directory Structure

The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software generates the design example files in the following folders:
  • <user_defined_design_example_directory>/ed_sim
  • <user_defined_design_example_directory>/ed_synth
  • <user_defined_design_example_directory>/ed_hwtest

The following diagrams show the directories that contain the generated files for the design example.

Figure 5. Directory Structure for Intel Agilex® 7 Serial Lite IV Design Example
Table 5.  Design Example Generated Directory and File Descriptions
Directory/File Description
ed_sim/tb_components The directory that contains the testbench files.
ed_sim/common The directory that contains the .tcl scripts for all the simulators.





The directories that contain the simulation scripts. These directories also serve as a working area for the simulators.

ed_sim/seriallite4_dup The directory that contains the design example simulation source files.
ed_sim/seriallite4_dup.ip IP-XACT representation of the design.
ed_synth/seriallite_iv_streaming_demo.qpf Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition project file.
ed_synth/seriallite_iv_streaming_demo.qsf Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition settings file.
ed_synth/seriallite_iv_streaming_demo.sdc Synopsys Design Constraints (SDC) file.
ed_synth/src The directory that contains the design example synthesizable components.
ed_synth/src/seriallite_iv_streaming_demo.v Design example top-level HDL.


The directory for each synthesizable component including Platform Designer-generated IPs, such as Demo Management and Demo Control modules.
ed_hwtest The directory that contains the design example hardware setup files.
ed_hwtest/Readme.txt Instruction file to download the generated design example on the development kit.
ed_hwtest/system_console The directory that contains system console scripts that provide useful commands to read statistics and to test the hardware design.
ed_hwtest/sliv_ip_toolkit_agilex The folder that contains the scripts to invoke the Serial Lite IV IP toolkit for Intel Agilex® 7 devices. This toolkit is a user-friendly GUI that provides step-by-step link initialization and debugging.
