3.12. Plan for Hierarchical and Team-Based Designs

The Intel® Quartus® Prime Compiler supports hierarchical design methodologies to reduce design compilation times and preserve performance. In a flat compilation flow, the design hierarchy is flattened without design partitions. In block-based (hierarchical) flows, you can subdivide your design by creating design partitions.
Hierarchical flows allow you to isolate, optimize, and preserve compilation results for specific design blocks, but require more design planning to ensure effective results.
