Toolkit Description Toolkit Documentation
EMIF Calibration Debug Toolkit Helps you to debug external memory interfaces by accessing calibration data obtained during memory calibration. The analysis tools can evaluate the stability of the calibrated interface and assess hardware conditions.
  • External Memory Interfaces Intel® Agilex™ FPGA IP User Guide
  • External Memory Interfaces Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA IP User Guide
EMIF Traffic Generator Configuration Toolkit

Helps you to debug external memory interfaces by sending sample traffic through the external memory interface to the memory device. The generated EMIF design example includes a traffic generator block with control and status registers.

EMIF Efficiency Monitor Toolkit Helps you to debug external memory interfaces by measuring efficiency on the Avalon interface in real time. The generated EMIF design example can include the Efficiency Monitor block.
  • External Memory Interfaces Intel® Agilex™ FPGA IP User Guide
  • External Memory Interfaces Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA IP User Guide
Ethernet Toolkit Helps you to interact with and debug an Ethernet Intel FPGA IP interface in real time. You can verify the status of the Ethernet link, assert and deassert IP resets, verifies the IP error correction capability, Ethernet Toolkit User Guide
Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA P-Tile Toolkit (for PCIe) Helps you to optimize the performance of large-size data transfers with real-time control, monitoring, and debugging of the PCI Express* links at the Physical, Data Link, and Transaction layers. Intel FPGA P-Tile Avalon® Memory Mapped IP for PCI Express* User Guide
Serial Lite IV IP Toolkit An inspection tool that monitors the status of a Serial Lite IV IP link and provides a step-by-step guide for the IP link initialization sequences.
  • Serial Lite IV Intel® Agilex™ FPGA IP Design Example User Guide
  • Serial Lite IV Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA IP Design Example User Guide
Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX Transceiver Native PHY Toolkit Helps you to optimize high-speed serial links in your board design by providing real-time control, monitoring, and debugging of the transceiver links running on your board.  
L-Tile and H-Tile Transceiver Native PHY Toolkit
E-Tile Transceiver Native PHY Toolkit

The following legacy toolkits remain available by clicking Tools > Legacy Toolkits in System Console. The legacy toolkits support earlier device families and may be subject to end of life and removal of support in a coming software release.

Legacy Toolkit Description Legacy Toolkit Documentation
Ethernet Link Inspector - Link Monitor Toolkit The Ethernet Link Inspector is an inspection tool that can continuously monitor an Ethernet link that contains an Ethernet IP. The Link Monitor toolkit performs real-time status monitoring of an Ethernet IP link. The link monitor continuously reads and displays all of the required status registers related to the Ethernet IP link, and displays the Ethernet IP link status at various stages are valid. Ethernet Link Inspector User Guide for Intel® Stratix® 10 Devices
Ethernet Link Inspector - Link Analysis Toolkit The Link Analysis toolkit displays a sequence of events on an Ethernet IP link, which occur in a finite duration of time. The Link Analysis requires the Signal Tap logic analyzer to first capture and store a database (.csv) of all required signals. The Link Analysis toolkit then performs an analysis on the database to extract all the required information and displays them in a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI).
S10 SDM Debug Toolkit Provides access to current status of the Intel® Stratix® 10 device. To use these commands, you must have a valid design loaded that includes the module that you intend to access. Intel® Stratix® 10 Configuration User Guide
Note: Refer to the toolkit documentation for individual toolkit launch, setup, and use information. The Transceiver Toolkit previously available in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software Tools menu is replaced by the Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX Transceiver Native PHY Toolkit.
