Document Table of Contents Creating a Single Intel® Quartus® Prime Project for a Standard Incremental Compilation Flow

Use the <top-level project>.tcl file that contains the Synplify assignments for the top‑level design. This method allows you to import all of the partitions into one Intel® Quartus® Prime project and optimize all modules within the project at once, taking advantage of the performance preservation and compilation time reduction offered by incremental compilation.

All of the constraints from the top-level project are passed to the Intel® Quartus® Prime software in the top-level .tcl file, but constraints made in the lower-level projects within the Synplify software are not forward‑annotated. Enter these constraints manually in your Intel® Quartus® Prime project.
