Intel® Quartus® Prime Software

Intel® Agilex™ Device Support

The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software v22.2 supports the Intel® Agilex™ device family. Intel® Agilex™ FPGA devices leverage heterogeneous 3D system-in-package (SiP) technology to integrate Intel’s first FPGA fabric built on 10 nm SuperFin Technology. Leveraging this advanced process technology and 2nd Gen Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA Architecture enables these FPGAs to deliver ~2X better fabric performance per watt1 when compared to our competition’s 7 nm FPGA portfolio. For applications requiring embedded processors, Intel® Agilex™ SoC FPGAs offer integrated quad-core Arm* Cortex-A53 processor.

Design Assistant / Snapshot Viewer

The Design Assistant and Snapshot Viewer are productivity tools meant for novice and advanced users. These tools enable faster design closure by reducing the number of design iterations required and speed every iteration with targeted sanity checks and guidance at every stage of the compilation process. View the video to learn more about the Design Assistant and Snapshot Viewer.

In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software v22.2, we have continued to add new rules as well as refining many of the existing rules to make it more useful for getting to timing closure faster.

  • Memory initialization DRCs
  • F-Tile and Dynamic Reconfiguration DRCs
  • New DRC linting rules to help avoid RAM corruption

Additionally, performance improvements have been made to the static timing analysis engine. Many of the Design Assistant rules support cross probing to timing reports to make it easier to investigate paths.
