1.8. Compiling and Programming the Intel® Stratix® 10 EMIF Design Example

After you have made the necessary pin assignments in the .qsf file, you can compile the design example in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.

  1. Navigate to the Intel® Quartus® Prime folder containing the design example directory.
  2. Open the Intel® Quartus® Prime project file, (.qpf).
  3. To begin compilation, click Processing > Start Compilation. The successful completion of compilation generates an .sof file, which enables the design to run on hardware.
  4. To program your device with the compiled design, open the programmer by clicking Tools > Programmer.
  5. In the programmer, click Auto Detect to detect supported devices.
  6. Select the Intel® Stratix® 10 device and then select Change File.
  7. Navigate to the generated ed_synth.sof file and select Open.
  8. Click Start to begin programming the Intel® Stratix® 10 device. When the device is successfully programmed, the progress bar at the top-right of the window should indicate 100% (Successful).
