3.1.1. Using the Board-Aware Flow
What is the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software Board-Aware Flow?
In the board-aware flow, you can optionally start your project from a pre-verified design example (rather than an empty project) and target a specific Intel FPGA development board. You can also create appropriate IP presets to target the specific board. The Intel® Quartus® Prime Platform Designer system integration tool is also board-aware, allowing you to automatically set pin assignments and export appropriate system interfaces for the target board.
The board-aware flow simplifies the application of appropriate parameters and pin assignments for the instantiated IP in your project, thereby reducing the chance of configuration errors. You can also save and reuse your preferred and verified board and IP configurations for use in other projects that target the same IP or board.
The board-aware flow helps to ensure the proper hand-off, consistency, and reuse of configuration options across multiple projects, developers, and boards.
