2. Design Optimization Overview

In the early stages of FPGA design development, you typically focus on meeting your timing requirement, resource usage, and power consumption goals. After meeting these basic goals, you can focus on optimizing performance.

Optimization of FPGA design performance requires a multi-dimensional approach to reduce resource use, critical path delays, power consumption, and runtime. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software provides various tools and techniques for performance optimization.

This chapter provides an overview of the initial techniques and settings in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software that you can use to optimize your design results and achieve the highest performance in Intel FPGAs.
