5.4.5. Save a Node-Level Netlist for the Entire Design into a Persistent Source File

Make the following assignments to cause the Intel® Quartus® Prime Fitter to save a node-level netlist for the entire design into a .vqm file:
set_global_assignment-name LOGICLOCK_INCREMENTAL_COMPILE_FILE <file name>

Any path specified in the file name is relative to the project directory. For example, specifying atom_netlists/top.vqm places top.vqm in the atom_netlists subdirectory of your project directory.

A .vqm file is saved in the directory specified at the completion of a full compilation.

Note: The saving of a node-level netlist to a persistent source file is not supported for designs targeting newer devices such as MAX® V , Stratix® IV, or Stratix® V.
