Document Table of Contents Verifying Pin Migration Compatibility

You can use the Pin Migration View window in the Quartus® Prime software Pin Planner to assist you in verifying whether your pin assignments migrate to a different device successfully. You can vertically migrate to a device with a different density while using the same device package, or migrate between packages with different densities and ball counts.

  2. If necessary, perform one of the following options to populate the Pin Planner with the node names in the design:
    • Analysis & Elaboration
    • Analysis & Synthesis
    • Fully compile the design
  3. Then, on the menu, click View > Pin Migration View.
  4. To select or change migration devices:
    1. Click Device to open the Device dialog box.
    2. Under Migration compatibility click Migration Devices.
  5. To show more information about the pins:

    If you want to view only the pins highlighted by the most recent query in the Pin Finder dialog box, turn on Show only highlighted pins.
