Document Table of Contents Guideline: Perform WYSIWYG Primitive Resynthesis with Balanced or Area Setting

The Perform WYSIWYG Primitive Resynthesis logic option specifies whether to perform WYSIWYG primitive resynthesis during synthesis. This option uses the setting specified in the Optimization Technique logic option. The Perform WYSIWYG Primitive Resynthesis logic option is useful for resynthesizing some or all of the WYSIWYG primitives in your design for better area or performance. However, WYSIWYG primitive resynthesis can be done only when you use third-party synthesis tools.
Note: The Balanced setting typically produces utilization results that are very similar to the Area setting with better performance results. The Area setting can give better results in some cases. Performing WYSIWYG resynthesis for area in this way typically reduces register-to-register timing performance.
