1. Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA Architecture Introduction

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 21.3
This document describes design techniques to achieve maximum performance with the Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA architecture. The Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA architecture supports Hyper-Retiming, Hyper-Pipelining, and Hyper-Optimization design techniques that enable the highest clock frequencies in Intel® Stratix® 10 and Intel® Agilex™ devices.

Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs

A "registers everywhere” architecture that packs bypassable Hyper-Registers into routing segments in the device core, and at all functional block inputs. The routing signal can travel through the register first, or bypass the register direct to the multiplexer, improving bandwidth and area and power efficiency.
