2.6.5.2. Multiplexer Types

This section addresses how Intel® Quartus® Prime synthesis creates multiplexers from various types of HDL code.

State machines, CASE statements, and IF statements are all common sources of multiplexer logic in designs. These HDL structures create different types of multiplexers, including binary multiplexers, selector multiplexers, and priority multiplexers.

The first step toward optimizing multiplexer structures for best results is to understand how Intel® Quartus® Prime infers and implements multiplexers from HDL code.
