In a typical design flow, the early stages of development concentrate on meeting timing, area and power goals. Once the design meets those goals, the efforts focus on improving performance. This chapter introduces techniques and tools in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software that you can use to achieve the highest design performance.

Optimization of a FPGA design requires a multi-dimensional approach that meets the design goals while reducing area, critical path delay, power consumption, and runtime. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software includes advisors to address each of these issues. By implementing the advisor's suggestions, you can reduce the time spent on design iterations.
