Compiling Intel® Quartus® Prime Simulation Libraries for Active-HDL


Users can compile Active-HDL libraries within the Intel® Quartus® Prime environment using a compiler wizard. For the purpose of this application note, we have used Quartus® Prime and provided the path to Active-HDL 13.0.

How to setup

  1. Open Quartus® Prime.

  2. Go to Tools | Launch Simulation Library Compiler.
