Can a Quartus Prime Pro license run Quartus Standard Edition?

Hello, management has released some funds to upgrade our Quartus software so I'm looking at the Prime Pro and the Standard editions. Can anyone tell me if I purchase a Prime Pro license that I will be able to run the Standard edition? It looks to me that I will need to install the Prime Pro and the Standard edition because the Prime Pro doesn't support all the devices. Am I correct? 

 

Thanks, 

Joe

The only device family supported by both is Arria 10. If you have a Pro license, you can run Standard because Pro licensing is an added feature line on top of Standard.

You would only need that IF you need to support other devices.  

You only need to buy pro IF you are going to be using Arria 10 (and stratix 10).  

 

Only buy licences for what you actually need. Maybe spend the extra on a decent simulator?

Tricky, 

 

Hello, thanks for responding to my post. So, will I need to download and install Prime Pro AND the Standard?
