1.5. Verifying if Programming Files Correspond to a Compilation of the Same Source Files
The project hash feature allows you to verify if two programming files correspond to a compilation of the same set of source files. During compilation, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software generates a unique project hash and embeds this value in programming files (.sof). The project hash is available for Arria® V, Stratix® V, Cyclone® V, Intel® MAX® 10, and Intel® Arria® 10 device families.
The project hash doesn't change for different builds of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, or when you install a software patch. However, if you upgrade any IP with a different build or patch, the project hash changes.
