2.7. Creating a Quartus® Prime Project

You can create a new Quartus® Prime project with the New Project Wizard, which helps you specify the working directory for the project, assign the project name, and designate the name of the top-level design entity.
Note: These instructions create the files required for synthesis, but do not generate all the files necessary to download the design to a hardware platform. Refer to the PCI Express High Performance Reference Design for the instructions to download to an Intel development kit.
  1. On the Quartus® Prime File menu, click then New Project Wizard, then Next.
  2. Click Next in the New Project Wizard: Introduction (The introduction does not appear if you previously turned it off.)
  3. On the Directory, Name, Top-Level Entity page, enter the following information:
    1. For What is the working directory for this project, browse to <project_dir>/ep_g2x4/synthesis/.
    2. For What is the name of this project, select ep_g2x4.v from the synthesis directory.
  4. Click Next.
  5. On the Add Files page, add <project_dir>/ep_g2x4/synthesis/ep_g2_x4.qip to your Quartus® Prime project. This file lists all necessary files for Quartus® Prime compilation.
  6. Click Next to display the Family & Device Settings page.
  7. On the Device page, choose the following target device family and options:
    1. In the Family list, select Stratix V (GS/GT/GX/E).
    2. In the Devices list, select Stratix V GX PCIe.
    3. In the Available devices list, select 5SGXEA7K2F40C2.
  8. Click Next to close this page and display the EDA Tool Settings page.
  9. From the Simulation list, select ModelSim. From the Format list, select the HDL language you intend to use for simulation.
  10. Click Next to display the Summary page.
  11. Check the Summary page to ensure that you have entered all the information correctly.
