2.4. Managing Logic Design Files

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software helps you create and manage the logic design files in your project. Logic design files contain the logic that implements your design. When you add a logic design file to the project, the Compiler automatically includes that file in the next compilation. The Compiler synthesizes your logic design files to generate programming files for your target device.

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software includes full-featured schematic and text editors, as well as HDL templates to accelerate your design work. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software supports VHDL Design Files (.vhd), Verilog HDL Design Files (.v), SystemVerilog (.sv) and schematic Block Design Files (.bdf). In addition, you can combine your logic design files with Intel and third-party IP core design files, including combining components into a Platform Designer system (.qsys).

The New Project Wizard prompts you to identify logic design files. Add or remove project files by clicking Project > Add/Remove Files in Project. View the project’s logic design files in the Project Navigator.
