8.2. Adding the HLS Compiler-Generated IP into a Platform Designer System

To use the HLS compiler-generated IP in a Platform Designer (formerly Qsys Pro) System, you must first add the directory to the IP search path or the IP Catalog.

In Platform Designer, if your HLS compiler-generated IP does not appear in the IP Catalog, perform the following tasks:

  1. In Quartus® Prime, click Tools > Options.
  2. In the Options dialog box, under Category, expand IP Settings and click IP Catalog Search Locations.
  3. in the IP Catalog Search Locations dialog box, add the path to the directory that contains the .ip file to IP Search Paths as <result>.prj/components/<component_name>/<component_name> .
  4. In IP Catalog, add your IP to the Platform Designer system by selecting it from the HLS project directory.
For more information about Platform Designer, refer to "Creating a System with Platform Designer" in Quartus® Prime Pro Edition User Guide: Platform Designer.
