The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition version of the Compiler supports these advanced features:

  • Supports Intel® Arria® 10, Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX, Intel® Stratix® 10, and Intel® Agilex™ devices.
  • Incremental Fitter optimization—analyze and optimize after each Fitter stage to maximize performance and shorten total compilation time.
  • Hyper-Aware Design Flow—use Hyper-Retiming and Fast Forward compilation for the highest performance in Intel® Stratix® 10 and Intel® Agilex™ devices.
  • Partial Reconfiguration—dynamic reconfiguration of a portion of the FPGA, while the remaining FPGA continues to function.
  • Block-Based Design Flows—preservation and reuse of design blocks.
