1.7. Exporting Design Partitions from Separate Intel® Quartus® Prime Projects
To enable team-based development and third-party IP delivery, you can design and optimize partitions in separate copies of the top-level Intel® Quartus® Prime project framework, or even in isolation. If the designers have access to the top-level project framework through a source control system, they can access project files as read-only and develop their partition within the source control system. If designers do not have access to a source control system, the project lead can provide the designer with a copy of the top-level project framework to use as they develop their partitions. The project lead also has the option to generate design partition scripts to manage resource and timing budgets in the top-level design when partitions are developed outside the top-level project framework.
The exported compilation results of completed partitions are given to the project lead, preferably using a source control system, who is then responsible for integrating them into the top-level design to obtain a fully functional design. This type of design flow is required only if partition designers want to optimize their placement and routing independently, and pass their design to the project lead to reuse placement and routing results. Otherwise, a project lead can integrate source HDL from several designers in a single Intel® Quartus® Prime project, and use the standard incremental compilation flow described previously.
The figure below illustrates the team-based incremental compilation design flow using a methodology in which partitions are compiled in separate Intel® Quartus® Prime projects before being integrated into the top-level design. This flow can be used when partitions are developed by other designers or IP providers.
