QSYS vs QIP

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

In the following document:

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/qts/qsys_intro.pdf

It says that when we generate a QSYS project - we can integrate it to our design by either adding the QIP file - or the QSYS file.

 

What are the benefits of adding the QSYS instead on the QIP ?

A .qip is created when the system is generated, just like when you generate the HDL for an IP. As such, if you make changes to the system, you have to manually re-generate the system before you can recompile the project. If you add the .qsys file to your project, the system is automatically re-generated during compilation. It's your choice which you want to do.

 

Sidenote: this is only applicable to the Standard edition of Quartus and Platform Designer. In Pro, the .qsys file is tied to a Quartus project so you don't have to worry about adding a file.
