Quartus Prime Power Optimization Techniques

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software offers power-optimized synthesis and fitting to reduce core dynamic power. Power-driven compilation works in conjunction with Programmable Power Technology in Cyclone 10 GX silicon.

Optimizing your design for area also saves power because fewer logic blocks are used; therefore, there is typically less switching activity. Improving your design source code to optimize for performance can also reduce power usage because more of the design might be placed using low power tiles instead of requiring the high-performance mode. You can use the DSE and Power Optimization Advisor to provide additional suggestions to reduce power.
