1. Design Optimization Overview

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 21.3
The early stages of FPGA design development typically focus on meeting timing requirement, resource usage, and power consumption goals. After meeting those basic goals, you can focus on optimizing performance.

Optimization of FPGA design performance requires a multi-dimensional approach to meet the design goals, while also reducing area, critical path delay, power consumption, and runtime. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software supports various tools and techniques for performance optimization.

This chapter describes the techniques and tools in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software that you can use to meet your design goals and achieve the highest design performance in Intel FPGAs.
