2.4. Generating IP Cores ( Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition)

This topic describes parameterizing and generating an IP variation using a legacy parameter editor in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition software. Some IP cores use a legacy version of the parameter editor for configuration and generation. Use the following steps to configure and generate an IP variation using a legacy parameter editor.
Legacy Parameter Editor
Note: The legacy parameter editor generates a different output file structure than the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.
  1. In the IP Catalog (Tools > IP Catalog), locate and double-click the name of the IP core to customize. The parameter editor appears.
  2. Specify a top-level name and output HDL file type for your IP variation. This name identifies the IP core variation files in your project. Click OK. Do not include spaces in IP variation names or paths.
  3. Specify the parameters and options for your IP variation in the parameter editor. Refer to your IP core user guide for information about specific IP core parameters.
  4. Click Finish or Generate (depending on the parameter editor version). The parameter editor generates the files for your IP variation according to your specifications. Click Exit if prompted when generation is complete. The parameter editor adds the top-level .qip file to the current project automatically.
    Note: For devices released prior to Intel® Arria® 10 devices, the generated .qip and .sip files must be added to your project to represent IP and Platform Designer systems. To manually add an IP variation generated with legacy parameter editor to a project, click Project > Add/Remove Files in Project and add the IP variation .qip file.
    Note: Some IP cores generate different HDL implementations according to the IP core parameters. The underlying RTL of these IP cores contains a unique code that prevents module name collisions between different variations of the IP core. This unique code remains consistent, given the same IP settings and software version during IP generation. This unique code can change if you edit the IP core's parameters or upgrade the IP core version. To avoid dependency on these unique codes in your simulation environment, refer to Generating a Combined Simulator Setup Script.
