4.7. The Quartus Prime IP File

The Quartus® Prime IP file ( .qip ) is a file generated by the MegaWizard™ Plug-In Manager, that contains information about a generated IP core. You are prompted to add this .qip file to the current project at the time of Quartus Prime file generation. In most cases, the .qip file contains all of the necessary assignments and information required to process the core or system in the Quartus Prime compiler. Generally, a single .qip file is generated for each IP core and for each Platform Designer system. However, some complex components generate a separate .qip file, so the system .qip file references the component .qip file.
