3.1.2. Identify Synchronizers for Metastability Analysis

The first step in enabling metastability MTBF analysis and optimization in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software is to identify which registers are part of a synchronization register chain. You can apply synchronizer identification settings globally to automatically list possible synchronizers with the Synchronizer identification option on the Timing Analyzer page in the Settings dialog box.

Synchronization chains are already identified within most Intel FPGA intellectual property (IP) cores.
