Document Table of Contents Creating a Intel® Quartus® Prime Project for Multiple .vqm Files

The Synplify software creates a .tcl file for each .vqm file that provides the Intel® Quartus® Prime software with the appropriate constraints and information to set up a project.

Depending on your design methodology, you can create one Intel® Quartus® Prime project for all netlists or a separate Intel® Quartus® Prime project for each netlist. In the standard incremental compilation design flow, you create design partition assignments and optional LogicLock floorplan location assignments for each partition in the design within a single Intel® Quartus® Prime project. This methodology allows for the best quality of results and performance preservation during incremental changes to your design. You might require a bottom-up design flow where each partition must be optimized separately, such as for third-party IP delivery.

To perform this design flow in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, create separate Intel® Quartus® Prime projects, export each design partition and incorporate it into a top‑level design using the incremental compilation features to maintain the results.
