1.6. Specifying the Level of Results Preservation for Subsequent Compilations

The netlist type of each design partition allows you to specify the level of results preservation. The netlist type determines which type of netlist or source file the Partition Merge stage uses in the next incremental compilation.

When you choose to preserve a post-fit compilation netlist, the default level of Fitter preservation is the highest degree of placement and routing preservation supported by the device family. The advanced Fitter Preservation Level setting allows you to specify the amount of information that you want to preserve from the post-fit netlist file.
