Document Table of Contents Early Floorplan

An early floorplan is created before the design stage. You can plan an early floorplan at the top level of a design to allocate each partition a portion of the device resources. Doing so allows the designer for each block to create the logic for their design partition without conflicting with other logic. Each partition can be optimized in a separate Quartus® Prime project if required, and the design can still be easily integrated in the top-level design. Even within one Quartus® Prime project, each partition can be locked down with a post-fit netlist, and you can be sure there is space in the device floorplan for other partitions.

When you have compiled your complete design, or after you have integrated the first versions of partitions developed in separate Quartus® Prime projects, you can use the design information and Quartus® Prime features to tune and improve the floorplan .
