7.5.5. FPGA DSP Blocks

Dedicated hardware DSP circuit blocks in Altera devices provide performance benefits for the critical DSP functions in your design.
The Resource Property Editor allows you to view the architecture of DSP blocks in the Resource Property Editor for the Cyclone and Stratix series of devices. The Resource Property Editor also allows you to modify the signal connections to and from the DSP blocks and modify the input and output registers to and from the DSP blocks. By default, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software displays the used resources in blue and the unused resources in gray.
