2.8.1. Running the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software from within the Precision Synthesis Software
Two primary Precision Synthesis software commands control the place‑and‑route process. Use the setup_place_and_route command to set the place‑and‑route options. Start the process with the place_and_route command.
Precision Synthesis software uses individual Intel® Quartus® Prime executables, such as analysis and synthesis, Fitter, and the Timing Analyzer for improved runtime and memory utilization during place and route. This flow is referred to as the Intel® Quartus® Prime Modular flow option in the Precision Synthesis software. By default, the Precision Synthesis software generates a Intel® Quartus® Prime Project Configuration File (.tcl file) for current device families. Timing constraints that you set during synthesis are exported to the Intel® Quartus® Prime place‑and‑route constraints file <project name>_pnr_constraints.sdc.
After you compile the design in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software from within the Precision Synthesis software, you can invoke the Intel® Quartus® Prime GUI manually and then open the project using the generated Intel® Quartus® Prime project file. You can view reports, run analysis tools, specify options, and run the various processing flows available in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
For more information about running the Intel® Quartus® Prime software from within the Precision Synthesis software, refer to the Intel® Quartus® Prime Integration chapter in the Precision Synthesis Reference Manual.
