Hi Akshatha31, 

 

Normally, assuming that you have a design ready to go within Quartus, you press "compile design" in the task window (open the task window with alt+6), and grab a coffee afterwards. Once compilation is done, you will have both *.pof and *.sof files in your project folder. You can upload the *.sof file to your de1 soc board using the button "program device". 

 

regards, Richard.

Are you looking in the right place? They should be in the output_files folder.

There is a folder called output files..This folder is generated automatically after compilation...It contains all compilation reports, and pof sof files...You will find it there.
