Document Table of Contents Compiling a Design Using Incremental Compilation

The first compilation after making partition assignments is a full compilation, and prepares the design for subsequent incremental compilations. In subsequent compilations of your design, you can preserve satisfactory compilation results and performance of unchanged partitions with the Netlist Type setting in the Design Partitions window. The Netlist Type setting determines which type of netlist or source file the Partition Merge stage uses in the next incremental compilation. You can choose the Source File, Post-Synthesis netlist, or Post-Fit netlist.
