Comprehensive timing analysis of your design allows you to validate circuit performance, identify timing violations, and drive the Fitter's placement of logic to meet your timing goals. The Intel® Quartus® Prime Timing Analyzer uses industry-standard constraint and analysis methodology to report on all data required times, data arrival times, and clock arrival times for all register-to-register, I/O, and asynchronous reset paths in your design.

The Timing Analyzer verifies that required timing relationships are met for your design to correctly function, and confirms actual signal arrival times against the constraints that you specify. This use guide provides an introduction to basic timing analysis concepts, along with step-by-step instructions for using the Intel® Quartus® Prime Timing Analyzer.
