Free IP Base Suite Licenses

To help shorten your design time, Intel provides full production licenses for some of our most popular intellectual property (IP) cores (shown in Table 1) in the Intel® FPGA IP Base Suite, which is free with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software and Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition Software.

If you have an active license for the Intel Quartus Prime Software or Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition Software, simply log on to the Self-Service Licensing Center to generate your license file and take advantage of the IP Base Suite.

The IP Base Suite is also installed with the Intel Quartus Prime Lite Edition Software. Full licenses to this suite are purchased separately. Contact your local sales representative to learn more.

Intel® FPGA IP Functions Description
FIR II

Over 12 major finite impulse response (FIR) filter architectures for use across multiple digital signal processing (DSP) applications. Generates bit-accurate and clock-cycle accurate models developed in Verilog, VHDL, and MATLAB, which provides coefficient generation. Provides significantly lower FPGA resource usage and increased performance than the original FIR Compiler for most FIR filter implementations. FIR filter performance, internal pipelining, and logic resource usage are optimized based on user inputs.

NCO Optimized for digital phase-locked loop (PLL) and digital interface functions. Supports multiple ROM-, CORDIC-, and multiplier-based architectures.
FFT A high-performance, highly parameterizable fast Fourier transform (FFT) processor. The FFT function implements a Radix-2/4 decimation-in-frequency FFT algorithm for transform lengths of 2m where 6 ≤ m ≤ 14, internally using a block-floating-point architecture to maximize signal dynamic range in the transform calculation.

AXI BFM
