1.6. Convert Programming Files Dialog Box

The Convert Programming Files dialog box in the Programmer allows you to convert programming files from one file format to another. To access the Convert Programming Files dialog box, click File > Convert Programming Files... on the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.

For example, to store the FPGA data in configuration devices, you can convert the .sof data to another format, such as .pof, .hexout, .rbf, .rpd, or .jic, and then program the configuration device.

You can also configure multiple devices with an external host, such as a microprocessor or CPLD. For example, you can combine multiple .sof files into one .pof file. To save time in subsequent conversions, click Save Conversion Setup to save your conversion specifications in a Conversion Setup File (.cof). Click Open Conversion Setup Data to load your .cof setup in the Convert Programming Files dialog box.
