3.9.1. Third-Party Synthesis Tools
Different synthesis tools may give different results for each design. To determine the best tool for your application, you can experiment by synthesizing typical designs for your application and coding style. Perform placement and routing in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to get accurate timing analysis and logic utilization results.
The synthesis tool you choose may allow you to create an Intel® Quartus® Prime project and pass constraints, such as the EDA tool setting, device selection, and timing requirements that you specified in your synthesis project. You can save time when setting up your Intel® Quartus® Prime project for placement and routing.
Tool vendors frequently add new features, fix tool issues, and enhance performance for Intel devices, you must use the most recent version of third-party synthesis tools.
