I have a Quartus 17.0 design with random number generator IP.
I'm trying to upgrade the design to Quartus 18.0 or higher tool. Unfortunately, I'm not able to find the IP in the catalog as well
Is it possible to use the 17.0 IP in the higher versions?
Any alternative way?
Please open project with proper device from Cyclone V family & then check for IP.
Yes, you can upgrade to 18.0 & higher version too.
Please find the screenshots & let me know if you have any concern.
Hmm... looks like the RNG is available only for select devices aka Cyclone V devices and is not available for Cyclone IV and older. Try selecting the exact Cyclone V device that you're using and check the IP catalog.
