16.2. Setup and Use

Before using the EMIF Toolkit, you should compile your design and program the target device with the resulting SRAM Object File (. sof). For designs compiled in the Quartus II software version 12.0 or earlier, debugging information is contained in the JTAG Debugging Information file (.jdi); however, for designs compiled in the Quartus II software version 12.1 or later, all debugging information resides in the .sof file.

You can run the toolkit using all your project files, or using only the Quartus Prime Project File (.qpf), Quartus Prime Settings File (.qsf), and .sof file; the .jdi file is also required for designs compiled prior to version 12.1. To ensure that all debugging information is correctly synchronized for designs compiled prior to version 12.1, ensure that the .sof and .jdi files that you used are generated during the same run of the Quartus Prime Assembler.

After you have programmed the target device, you can run the EMIF Toolkit and open your project. You can then use the toolkit to create connections to the external memory interface.
