Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Software Overview

The new revolutionary Intel® Quartus® Prime design software includes everything you need to design for Intel FPGAs, SoCs, and CPLDs from design entry and synthesis to optimization, verification, and simulation. Dramatically increased capabilities on devices with multi-million logic elements, are providing designers with the ideal platform to meet next-generation design opportunities. For designers to effectively take advantage of these devices, software must dramatically increase design productivity. The new Quartus Prime software, built on the successful Quartus II software, is breaking barriers of FPGA design productivity.

The Quartus Prime software is available in three editions based on your design requirements: Pro, Standard, and Lite Edition.

  • Quartus Prime Pro Edition–The Quartus Prime Pro Edition software is optimized to support the advanced features in next-generation FPGAs and SoCs, starting with the Intel Arria® 10 device family.
  • Quartus Prime Standard Edition–The Quartus Prime Standard Edition software includes the most extensive support for earlier device families and requires a subscription license.
  • Quartus Prime Lite Edition–The Quartus Prime Lite Edition software provides an ideal entry point to high-volume device families and is available as a free download with no license file required.
