1.8.1. Starting Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Space Explorer II

To start Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Space Explorer II, select a large instance with multiple CPU cores. The compilations run on the same machine and share the memory.

  1. Select an instance type with enough memory for the desired parallelism.
    An Intel® Arria® 10 design requires about 50GB of RAM. To perform ten compilations in parallel, choose an instance type with sufficient memory and at least 10 cores.
    • The Microsoft* Azure* Memory-optimized Standard_E64_v3 instance type has 532GB RAM and 64 CPU cores.
  2. Launch the job.
  3. In the virtual desktop, open a terminal and type:
