1.2.2.2.3. Fitter Stage

The Fitter then processes the merged netlist, preserves the placement and routing of unchanged partitions, and refits only those partitions that have changed. The Fitter generates the complete netlist for use in future stages of the compilation flow, including timing analysis and programming file generation, which can take place in parallel if more than one processor is enabled for use in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. The Fitter also generates individual netlists for each partition so that the Partition Merge stage can use the post‑fit netlist to preserve the placement and routing of a partition, if specified, for future compilations.
