ECAD and Architecture Practical Classes
The Altera Quartus Tools
The Altera Quartus tools are used to synthesize the Verilog designs for these practical sessions. If you wish to run the tools on your own machine, a free web edition of the tools is available from Altera: http://www.altera.com/products/software/quartus-ii/web-edition/qts-we-index.html. The web edition is reasonably full-featured though it lacks some performance enhancements like incremental compilation for synthesis. But this should not be a problem since in these labs. we aim to do more simulation in order to remove the need for lots of synthesis runs.
To get started with the tools follow the instructions for Lab 1 - Getting started.
