Note: Intel® has discontinued use of the MegaWizard™ Plug-Ins as the parameterization tool as of the v14.1 combined Quartus® software or intellectual property (IP) release. Licensees of the Intel FPGA IP from earlier releases may continue to use in the Quartus software v14.1 or earlier.
MegaWizard Plug-Ins are parameterization tools that help you integrate megafunctions into your designs without requiring the use of third-party tools. You can use this feature in the Quartus II and MAX+PLUS II (version 8.2 to version 14.1) software or as a stand-alone tool with third-party EDA design interfaces. MegaWizard Plug-Ins provide maximum flexibility, allowing you to customize Intel FPGA IP without changing your design's source code. You can integrate a parameterized Intel FPGA IP in any hardware description language (HDL) or netlist file using any EDA tool.
