2.3.2. Accessing Downloaded Design Examples

You can create a new project based on a design example that you have previously downloaded. To test this method, you can download a design example .par file from the Intel FPGA Design Store, or from another online repository that stores design examples in .par format, into your working directory. Platform Designer also classifies designs that you create yourself and store in a local drive as downloaded examples.

To create a new project based on a downloaded design example, follow these steps:

  1. Start the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.
  2. Click File > Open Example Project. The Design Example page of the New Project Wizard opens.
  3. Under What is the working directory for this project?, specify the directory location to store your project files.
  4. Click the Design Store button. The Design Store web page displays an unfiltered list of available design examples.

  5. From the left navigation menu, click on Agilex FPGAs and SOC FPGAs to filter the list of design examples.
  6. Click the I/O PLL Reconfiguration design example.
  7. Download the .par file for the I/O PLL Reconfiguration design example to your working directory. Accept the license agreement when prompted.
  8. On the Design Example page, click the More Settings button.
  9. Click the Design Examples Search Locations tab.
  10. In the Design examples search directories box, specify the working directory to store your downloaded design example .par file from step 3.
  11. Under Find Options, specify the following settings:
    1. In Load from, select Downloaded design examples.
    2. In Family, select Agilex.
    3. In Intel Quartus Prime version, select 19.4.
    4. In Development kit, select Agilex F-series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit.
  12. In the design example list, select the I/O PLL Reconfiguration design. The ? symbol indicates that the design is not yet validated for the current Intel® Quartus® Prime software version.
