2.1. About Incremental Compilation and Floorplan Assignments

This manual provides guidelines to help you partition your design to take advantage of Quartus® Prime incremental compilation, and to help you create a design floorplan using Logic Lock (Standard) regions when they are recommended to support the compilation flow.

The Quartus® Prime incremental compilation feature allows you to partition a design, compile partitions separately, and reuse results for unchanged partitions. Incremental compilation provides the following benefits:

  • Reduces compilation times by an average of 75% for large design changes
  • Preserves performance for unchanged design blocks
  • Provides repeatable results and reduces the number of compilations
  • Enables team-based design flows
