2.2.2. Incremental Block-Based Compilation Overview

You can use incremental block-based compilation to reduce overall compile time through design abstraction with empty design partitions.

You can specify a design partition as Empty to represent parts of your design that are incomplete or missing. Setting a partition to Empty can reduce the total compilation time if the Compiler does not process design logic associated with the empty partition.

Empty partitions allow you to:

  • Set aside incomplete portions of the design, mark them as Empty, and complete the design incrementally.
  • Designate complete portions of the design as Empty to focus all subsequent Compiler efforts on uncompleted portions of the design
