3.1. Integrating with DxDesigner

You can integrate the Mentor Graphics* DxDesigner schematic capture tool into the Intel® Quartus® Prime design flow. Use DxDesigner to create flat circuit schematics or to create hierarchical schematics that facilitate design reuse and a team-based design for all PCB types.
If you use DxDesigner without the I/O Designer software, the design flow is one-way, using only the .pin generated by the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. You can only make signal and pin assignment changes in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. You cannot back-annotate changes made in a board layout tool or in a DxDesigner symbol to the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
