Generating a Test Bench Template for Use with Other EDA Tools

After you compile a design with the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, you can generate a test bench file Definition that contains an instantiation of the top-level design entity, for simulation with other EDA tools, with the Start Test Bench Template Writer command.

To generate a template for a test bench file:

  1. If you have not already done so, open an existing project.
  2. If you have not already done so, perform a full compilation.
  3. Specify a simulation tool.
  4. Click Processing > Start > Start Test Bench Template Write > . .
    The command writes the testbench file in the location specified as the output directory for the tool you selected. The default is /<project directory>/simulation/<EDA simulation tool>.
