1.21. Fast Forward Compile

The innovative Fast Forward Compile feature in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software identifies performance bottlenecks in your design and provides detailed, step-by-step performance improvement recommendations that you can then implement. The Compiler reports estimates of the maximum operating frequency that can be achieved by applying the recommendations. As part of the new Hyper-Aware design flow, Fast Forward Compile maximizes the performance of your Intel® Stratix® 10 DX design and achieves rapid timing closure.

Previously, this type of optimization required multiple time-consuming design iterations, including full design re-compilation to determine the effectiveness of the changes. Fast Forward Compile enables you to make better decisions about where to focus your optimization efforts, and how to increase your design performance and throughput. This technique removes much of the guesswork of performance exploration, resulting in fewer design iterations.
