ARM Cortex support in Qsys 11.1

Honored Contributor I

Hello everyone, 

I have a simple question - how do you add a Hard Processor Subsystem (HPS) into a Cyclone V based Qsys project 


I've installed Quartus 11.1 (build 173) which is supposed to have support for ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore Processor.  

But when I look thru all items available under "Embedded processor" node in Qsys I can't find any processor but NiosII derivatives.  


Do I have to download ARM Cortex IP and install separately? Should I add "secret" code to the Quatus .ini file?  

Any advice is welcome
