This may help

For the Cyclone V, please go down to the “PCIe With On-Chip Memory Interface Reference Designs” section (link below) and go down to the third one, for Cyclone V GT. That is the same as the one in the link on Page 11 of AN456.pdf. 

 

Best Regards, Bob. 

 

PS: I am trying to get the Cyclone IV Transciever Starter Kit working with this GUI example ..the card is seen, and enumerated but the GUI doesn't have any of the tests active ... any ideas on how to get the GUI to run with it ? 

 

Thanks, Bob.

Also, can anyone comment on then these examples indicate Quartus 14.0 ... is that a pre-requisite to build / compile ? 

I am at 13.1 for stability reasons ... I can switch to 14.0 for testing ... but would like to know if it is necessary ? 

 

Thanks, Bob.

Hi Bob, 

 

This is indicating that these example designs are created and verified with Quartus 14.0. Thus, it is recommended for you to use 14.0 to ensure compatibility and expected behavior of the designs.

From Quartus II 13.1 to 14.0, there is a major change from Megawizard to IP Editor for IPs instantiation. You might not be able to compile the 14.0 generated design in 13.1.
