2.8.3. QAR/QDB File Generation

The base.qdb Intel® Quartus® Prime Compilation Database File contains all the necessary compilation database information for importing a timing-closed and placed-and-routed netlist of the static region.

The INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board/s10_ref/hardware/s10gx/scripts/post_flow_pr.tcl script creates the base.qdb file. The qar_ip_files.tcl file invokes the qar_ip_files proc command to export the entire base revision compilation database to the base.qar file that also contains the base.qdb, and base.sdc files. For your Custom Platform, you do not need to add these files to the board directory (that is, INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board/<custom_platform>/hardware/<board_name> ) separately. They are generated when you do a base revision compile with your custom platform.
