1.5.5. Step 5: Define Personas

Your partial reconfiguration design can have multiple PR partitions, each with multiple personas. You define the unique function of each persona in separate Verilog HDL, SystemVerilog HDL, or VHDL design files in the project directory. All the PR personas must use the same set of signals to interact with the static region.

Ensure that the signals interacting with the static region are a super-set of all the signals in all the personas. A PR design requires an identical I/O interface for each persona in the PR region. If all personas for your design do not have identical interfaces, you must also create wrapper logic to interface with the static region.

Note: If using the Intel® Quartus® Prime Text Editor, disable Add file to current project when saving the files. These persona source files should not be part of the Intel® Quartus® Prime project or compilations.
