2.1. Running Qsys

  1. Launch the Quartus® Prime software. Alternatively, you can also use the Quartus Prime Lite Edition software.
  2. On the File menu, select New, then Qsys System File.
  3. Open the ep_g2x4.qsys example design.

The following figure shows a Qsys system that includes the Transceiver Reconfiguration Controller and the Altera PCIe Reconfig Driver IP Cores. The Transceiver Reconfiguration Controller performs dynamic reconfiguration of the analog transceiver settings to optimize signal quality. You must include these components to the Qsys system to run successfully in hardware.
