1.10.2. Generate PR Programming Files with the Convert Programming Files Dialog Box

In the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, the flow to generate PR programming files is supported in the Convert Programming Files dialog box. You can specify how the Intel® Quartus® Prime software processes file types such as .msf, .pmsf, and .sof to create .rbf and merged .msf and .pmsf files.

You can create

  • A .pmsf output file, from .msf and .sof input files
  • A .rbf output file from a .pmsf input file
  • A merged .msf file from two or more .msf input files
  • A merged .pmsf file from two or more .pmsf input files

Convert Programming Files dialog box also allows you to enable the option bit for bitstream decompression during partial reconfiguration, when converting the base .sof (full design .sof) to any supported file type.
