1.1. New Features and Enhancements

Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software Version 22.4 includes functional and security updates. Keep your software up-to-date and follow the technical recommendations that help to improve the security of your Intel® Quartus® Prime installation.

Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software Version 22.4 includes the following new features and enhancements:
  • Added new design example discovery feature that provides a single point of entry into FPGA design examples within Intel® Quartus® Prime and Platform Designer. The design examples come from various offline and online sources, including examples provided as part of your Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition installation and examples available in the FPGA Design Store.
  • Added new board awareness feature in Platform Designer that enables faster design creation when targeting Intel and third-party FPGA boards. The board awareness feature provides preconfigured IP and board settings to help get your design started quickly.
  • Enhanced the RTL Analyzer as follows:
    • Added filtering options so that you can filter your netlist and view only a specified logic path.
    • Added Expand Connections option so you can expand a selected pin and reveal the next connected node.
    • Added capability to save and restore your last view when you relaunch RTL Analyzer. Changing your RTL and recompiling the project invalidates your saved view.
  • Enhanced the Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC) as follows:
    • Added beta support for IP Wizard to help populate the PTC with resource used by an IP. This wizard replaces the I/O-IP Page of the PTC.
    • Added support for importing design hierarchies from Quartus Power Analyzer.
  • Enhanced Nios V support as follows:
    • Updated Ashling* RiscFree* IDE for Intel FPGA to 2022 Q4 release.
    • Enhanced the Nios V example design flow by migrating example designs to the Intel FPGA Design Store.
    • Enabled Zephyr RTOS for Nios V/m.
  • For F-tile–based IP, added simulation support for Aldec* Active-HDL* and Aldec* Riviera-PRO* simulation tools.
  • Enhanced System Console GUI with the ability to customize the workspace layout and save your customizations.
  • Added Tile Assignment Editor for user-defined Dynamic Reconfiguration (DR) Group specification for F-tile designs.
