This is a document that is able to assist user to get started in Qsys Pro quickly. This document contain some of the differences which are present in Qsys Pro compared to Qsys Standard. It also include steps to build Nios II hardware in Qsys Pro.
Qsys Pro version 16.1
Hierarchical isolation between system interconnect and IP components.
Supports incremental generation of system and IP components.
Supports generic components, allowing instantiation of IP components without HDL implementation.
Allow in-editor instantiation of custom RTL as generic component within a system.
Enable team-based design through hierarchy and system footprint constraints.
Qsys Pro version 17.0
Supports Cyclone 10 LP device.
New hierarchical partial reconfiguration support for Arria 10 devices.
New partial reconfiguration simulation support for Arria 10 devices.
System scripting support so that you can run system scripts from the GUI.
New Avalon-MM Interconnect Domain View functions:
1. Highlight the memory map domain views in your system and view details on the adaptation.
2. View interfaces of the selected domain and mismatches on a master/slave connection.
Improved Quartus and Qsys file synchronization. If you change the location of a .ip file in one tool, the location is updated in the other tool as well.
Allow selective upgrading of IP components in a Qsys system if previously generated RTL is available.
This section tracks the update history of the documents.
