Document Table of Contents Platform Designer Component Editor

In the Vivado* software, you can use the IP Packager to add custom IPs to the IP catalog. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software, you create and package IP components with the Platform Designer Component Editor.
  • To create a new component using the Component Editor, in the Platform Designer main window click File > New Component.
  • When you define a component with the Component Editor, Platform Designer writes the information to an _hw.tcl file. This file contains the component's description, interfaces, and HDL files.
  • If the component requires custom features that the Platform Designer Component Editor does not support, for example, an elaboration callback, you can use the Component Editor to create the _hw.tcl file, and then manually edit the file to complete the component definition.
