Document Table of Contents write_checkpoint

In Vivado* , the write_checkpoint command allows you to save a project at any point in the design process. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software, you can export a synthesized or final snapshot of the compile by using the quartus_cdb executable.

In addition, you can use the quartus_cdb executable to import and export version-compatible databases. This ability simplifies design migration between versions of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software; you can import a database from a version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition into another version of the software, without the need of full compilation. After import, you need to rerun only timing analysis or simulation with the updated timing models.
