DSE concurrent local compilation

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to use DSE for my design with concurrent local compilation option. Does anyone know where the programming file(sof) is created to. 

 

Thanks,

Under your synthesis directory, DSE creates a directory called dse. 

 

Depending on how you have the settings setup, there may be multiple directories under that. 

 

But usually there is a best.qar file. This is a Quartus Compressed file that contains the best results you received from the DSE run. 

 

Double click on this file, and Quartus will ask you where you want to restore the project. 

 

(Default is ./synthesis/dse/best_restored) 

 

In that you will find the .pof .sof and .rbf files for that particular run.

No Problem.. 

 

I had to look for it myself the first time I used DSE.. I find it helps out a lot, when you are getting full, and have to find the correct settings to fit and meet timing.
