Step 2: Creating a Design Partition
To create design partition for partial reconfiguration:
- Right-click the u_blinking_led instance in the Project Navigator, and then click Design Partition > Reconfigurable. A design partition icon appears next to each instance that is set as a partition.
Figure 3. Creating Design Partitions from Project Navigator
- To view and edit all design partitions in the project, click Assignments > Design Partitions Window. The design partition appears on the Assignments View tab of the Design Partitions Window.
Note: When you create a partition, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software automatically generates a partition name based on the instance name and hierarchy path. This default partition name can vary with each instance.
- Edit the partition name in the Design Partitions Window by double-clicking the name. For this reference design, rename the partition name to pr_partition.
- To export the finalized static region from the base revision compile, double-click the entry for root_partition in the Post Final Export File column, and type blinking_led_static.qdb.

Verify that the blinking_led.qsf contains the following assignments, corresponding to your reconfigurable design partition:
set_instance_assignment -name PARTITION pr_partition -to \ u_blinking_led -entity top set_instance_assignment -name PARTIAL_RECONFIGURATION_PARTITION ON \ -to u_blinking_led -entity top set_instance_assignment -name EXPORT_PARTITION_SNAPSHOT_FINAL \ blinking_led_static.qdb -to | -entity top
