2.3.2. Output File Generation

IBIS and HSPICE model files are not generated by the Intel® Quartus® Prime software by default. To generate or update the files automatically during each project compilation, select the type of file to generate and a location where to save the file in the project settings.

The IBIS and HSPICE Writers in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software are run as part of the EDA Netlist Writer during normal project compilation. If either writer is turned on in the project settings, IBIS or HSPICE files are created and stored in the specified location. For IBIS, a single file is generated containing information about all assigned pins. HSPICE file generation creates separate files for each assigned pin. You can run the EDA Netlist Writer separately from a full compilation in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software or at the command line.

Note: You must fully compile the project or perform I/O Assignment Analysis at least once for the IBIS and HSPICE Writers to have information about the I/O assignments and settings in the design.
