Hi,quartus ii 10.X version web edition is not available anymore on altera database. - why is that? - any problem with that edition? - have any external link for download? cause i wanna discover the modelsim 6.6c. but it need a quartus 10.
Altera changed the procedure to get older versions of Quartus. You now need to contact them and ask for a specific version and they will give you a link to download it.
oh. ok. some Q.i am new in quartus. so. i heard we can simulate n create vector waveform in quartus ii 9, but need another software for simulation in later version 10 n above if i'm not mistaken. heard of modelsim. but... - what's the use of niosII? - tried quartus 12 n modelsim 10.0d, but it seems option for creating waveform is disabled. also the 'opimization configuration' option. is there in any way i can enable it for this version? need to create my own vector waveform.
if you really want to create your own waveforms, you need Quartus 9 and its internal simulator. It is rather limited but can be enough for simple designs.With Modelsim you'll have to write test benches using HDL instead of drawing waveforms. It is a bit more difficult to learn but far more flexible.
