6.5.2.2.1. Generating Fast Forward Timing Closure Recommendations

To generate Fast Forward timing closure recommendations:

  1. On the Compilation Dashboard, click Fast Forward Timing Closure Recommendations.
    The Compiler runs prerequisite synthesis or Fitter stages as needed, and generates timing closure recommendations in the Compilation Report.
  2. View timing closure recommendations in the Compilation Report to evaluate design performance, and implement key RTL performance improvements.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software allows you to automate or refine Fast Forward analysis:
  • To run Fast Forward compilation during each full compilation, click Assignments > Settings > Compiler Settings > HyperFlex, and turn on Run Fast Forward Timing Closure Recommendations during compilation.
  • To modify how Fast Forward compilation interprets specific I/O and block types, click Assignments > Settings > Compiler Settings > HyperFlex Advanced Settings.
