In This day we will learn the basics features in the design flow using the Quartus® II software .
You will learn how to use the Quartus® II software v. 10.1 to develop an FPGA or CPLD design from initial design to device programming. You will create a new project, input new or existing design files, and compile your project. You’ll learn how to search for compilation information, use settings and assignments to adjust the results of compilation, and manage I/O-related assignments. You will also learn about using the TimeQuest timing analyzer, the path-based static timing analysis tool included with the Quartus II software. You will learn techniques to help you plan your design. You will employ Quartus II features that can help you achieve design goals faster. You will also learn how to plan and manage I/O assignments for your target device.



In this day we will constraint on the Timing analysis issues with the TimeQuest tool.
You will learn how to constrain & analyze a design for timing using the TimeQuest timing analyzer in the Quartus® II software v. 10.1. This includes understanding FPGA timing parameters, writing Synopsys Design Constraint (SDC) files, generating various timing reports in the TimeQuest timing analyzer & applying this knowledge to an FPGA design. Besides learning the basic requirements to ensure that your design meets timing, you will see how the TimeQuest timing analyzer makes it easy to create timing constraints to help you meet those requirements.



In this day we will constraint on the useful debug & analysis  tools when using Altera devices .
You will learn features of the Quartus® II software v. 10.1 that will enable you to analyze and debug your Altera® design. You will estimate FPGA power consumption using Quartus II power analysis tools. You will learn how to analyze simultaneous switching noise using the Simultaneous Switching Noise (SSN) Analyzer. You will verify design functionality using debugging tools available in the Quartus II software, such as the SignalTap® II embedded logic analyzer, SignalProbe, In-System Sources & Probes, & the Logic Analyzer Interface. You will learn to analyze and make changes to your design using the Chip Planner. You will be introduced to the System Console and related tools to debug your system using TCL based toolkits.
