3.8. Node-Naming Conventions in Quartus® Prime Integrated Synthesis

Whenever possible, Quartus® Prime Integrated Synthesis uses wire or signal names from your source code to name nodes such as LEs or ALMs. Some nodes, such as registers, have predictable names that do not change when a design is resynthesized, although certain optimizations can affect register names. The names of other nodes, particularly LEs or ALMs that contain only combinational logic, can change due to logic optimizations that the software performs.
