The Intel® Quartus® Prime software and MAX+PLUS® II software are Intel® tools that provide compiler, simulation, and programming capabilities. A designer without the full version of the Intel Quartus Prime software or the MAX+PLUS II software can use the stand-alone versions of the programmer to program, verify, and examine Intel devices. The Intel Quartus Prime software supports all current Intel programming hardware.
While the Intel Quartus Prime software supports most of the Intel device families supported by the MAX+PLUS II software, it does not support obsolete devices or packages. Table 1 lists the devices supported by these two software tools.
