9.3. Linking Hardware Resource for Multiple FPGAs

When you load multiple design projects for multiple FPGAs, linking indicates which of the projects are in each FPGA. The toolkit automatically discovers hardware and designs that you connect. You can also manually link a design to connected hardware resources in the System Explorer.

If you are using more than one Intel FPGA board, you can set up a test with multiple devices linked to the same design. This setup is useful if you want to perform a link test between a transmitter and receiver on two separate devices. You can also load multiple Intel® Quartus® Prime projects and link between different systems. You can perform tests on separate and unrelated systems in a single Intel® Quartus® Prime instance.

To link a device, right click on the device within the devices folder in System Explorer. Select Link device to and the name of the .qpf project file for that device.
