Quartus 19.3 Output Directory Contents and Location

Hi,

 

Where can the output directory be found? According to the Quartus help it says it is relative to the qsys file path. I looked everywhere near that directory with no luck.

Will the output directory have logs of FPGAs that have been programmed manually using the tool?

 

Thank you,

Jeremy Smith

The Programmer generates messages in the Messages window but doesn't generate any files.  I guess you could copy/paste or export the messages.

By default, there's an output_files directory in your project directory.  You can change this in Assignments -> Settings -> Compilation Process Settings.

If you're talking about files generated by Platform Designer, in Standard/Lite, you can select the directory when you generate, but it defaults a directory with the same name as the .qsys file where the .qsys file is located.  In Pro, it's always in the project directory with the same name as the system.

It's Pro. What if there is no project directory and the FPGAs were simply programmed with the Programmer tool? Are there any logs that can be retrieved in that case?

You're looking for a log of programming a device with an existing programming file (.sof, .pof, etc.)?  I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for.

Yeah, essentially. We configured and programmed a bunch of FPGAs with existing .sof and .jic files. I am looking for some logs to upload for record keeping purposes.
