Questa - Intel FPGA Edition support for Quartus Standard Edition

How will simulation of FPGAs supported by Quartus Standard Edition be possible with Questa - Intel FPGA Edition replacing ModelSim - Intel Edition?  The latest version of Quartus Standard Edition on the download page is 20.1.1 with ModelSim, not Questa.  We need simulation for Cyclone V, and various MegaCores implemented in Cyclone V, including the Triple Speed Ethernet MAC MegaCore, and the DDR3 SDRAM Controller with UniPHY, and others for 1 design.  The Ethernet controller is a separate license.  The DDR3 controller is part of the IP Base Suite Package.  We need support for Cyclone IV and Max-10 for other designs.  We cannot use ModelSim because our license has expired and new ModelSim licenses apparently are not available.

Hi @TJohn 

 

If you do not mind to wait for a while, the Quartus Standard 21.1 is plan to release by next week, along with the Questa - Intel FPGA Edition. Then you can use the Questa - Intel FPGA Edition tool for your simulation.

Are you talking about the full ModelSim-Intel FPGA Edition as opposed to the free licensing of the Starter edition?  Where do you see that licenses for the full edition are not available?

I just downloaded Quartus lite 21.3 . I have Questa sim with my download. While downloading Questa sim , that comes with the Quartus 21.3 package, it says Questa sim has a zero cost license associated with it. I'm trying to access this license. I have Registered with "Intel® PSG Self Servicing License Center (SSLC)" yet when I go to this page after Registering ,I'm redirected to another site with in your company but not a place where I can get my zero cost license file for Questa sim. How can I gain access to my Zero Cost license for this project?
