2.1. Quick Start Guide

The E-Tile Ethernet IP for Intel® Agilex™ FPGA core for Intel® Agilex™ devices provides a simulation testbench and a hardware design example that supports compilation and hardware testing. When you generate the design example, the parameter editor automatically creates the files necessary to simulate, compile, and test the design in hardware.

In addition, Intel® provides a compilation-only example project that you can use to quickly estimate IP core area and timing.
