HLS support in Lite and Standard versions

Hello all! 

 

I installed Quartus 17.1 Lite version (with the problems that I described here (https://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57953&p=235788)) and Standard version. 

 

Operating System - Debian GNU / Linux 9 

 

After installation, I did not find the hls/ directory. 

 

In paragraph 1.2, "initializing the intel hls compiler environment" in the "intel high level synthesis (hls) compiler getting started guide" (https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/hb/hls/ug-hls-getting-sta...) says:

On Linux systems, initialize your environment as follows:a. In your terminal session, change directories to the hls directory in your Intel Quartus Prime installation directory. 

 

For example, /home/<username>/intelFPGA_pro/17.1/hls

Why there is no hls/ directory? 

How to work with HLS in this case? 

 

Thank you!

Hi, 

 

HLS is not supported in Lite version.You can use standard and pro version for HLS projects. 

Refer  

1.https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/hb/hls/ug-hls-getting-sta... 

2.https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/hb/hls/ug-hls.pdf 

In standard you may find HLS directory without examples folder. 

In pro HLS directory with examples.

After you have helped to fix another issue (https://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57953), the hls/ directory is in place even in Lite version :) 

 

Now everything is fine! 

Thank you!
