The capabilities of Intel® FPGAs have matured to a point where you can use the devices for more than simple glue logic. Intel FPGAs are becoming the heart of applications, and intellectual property (IP) plays a key role in enabling this evolution.
Intel has been developing and licensing IP for two decades. From simple arithmetic functions to high-performance interface protocols, processor subsystems, and application-specific solutions, Intel FPGA IP enables you to create applications on Intel FPGAs for a wide range of markets. The combination of Intel MegaCore® IP and application-specific IP from a community of trusted Design Service Network members simplifies your development effort while maximizing design productivity.
Accelerated Design Productivity
Intel has simplified the IP selection process by enabling the use of Intel and Design Solutions Network (DSN) member IP throughout the Quartus® Prime design software flow from the time it is installed. The first step is to download the Quartus Prime design software, which includes all of the Intel FPGA IP, from our online Download Center.
The IP evaluation flow, called OpenCore Plus, delivers a powerful productivity advantage. With OpenCore Plus, you do not need to acquire a license before you can evaluate the IP. You can:
- Simulate the core behavior within your system
- Verify the design functionality and quickly evaluate its size and performance
- Generate time-limited device programming files for designs that incorporate the Intel or partner IP
- Program a device and verify the design in hardware
The majority of our DSN members also support the OpenCore Plus evaluation feature. For more information about core download, evaluation, and licensing, visit Intel FPGA's Getting Started page.
