1.3.1. Top-Down Design Methodology Overview

In a top-down design methodology, you plan the design at the top level, and then split the design into lower-level design blocks. Different developers or IP providers can create and verify HDL code for the lower-level design blocks separately, but one team lead manages the implementation project for the entire design.

In the top-down methodology, you can use incremental block-based compilation to preserve the core logic with the Preservation Level setting, or another developer working on the same project preserves the partitions and provides a .qdb file.

You can use incremental block-based compilation in combination with the root partition reuse flow, exporting the root partition, and then reusing that root partition in the same project.
