3.2. Metastability and MTBF Reporting

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software reports the metastability analysis results in the Compilation Report and Timing Analyzer reports.

The MTBF calculation uses timing and structural information about the design, silicon characteristics, and operating conditions, along with the data toggle rate.

If you change the Synchronizer Identification settings, you can generate new metastability reports by rerunning the timing analyzer. However, you should rerun the Fitter first so that the registers identified with the new setting can be optimized for metastability MTBF.
