Pin Assignment Import using .tcl file

Hello, 

 

I was looking into how to import pin assignments in a .tcl file into Quartus Standard Edition and section 2.3 of the Design Constraints User Guide shows the following table. The table lists .tcl as an exportable format but not an importable one. How come this is the case?  I only have the assignments in the .tcl format and making a .csv would require programming a converter. How can I import a .tcl file containing pin assignments otherwise?

You can just copy the assignments into your .qsf file.

Hi,


The .qsf file mainly uses tcl commands, so you should be able to import the pin assignments if you just copy the location assignments from the .tcl file into your .qsf file.

I have been doing some reading, you can input them by just running the tcl script in Quartus. You can reference section 2.2.4 of the Quartus Prime Standard Edition User Guide: Design Constraint ver. 18.1 to read about this.
