Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition compiler
Intel® Quartus® Prime software provides several mechanisms for preserving the placement and routing of some previously compiled logic and importing this logic into a new compilation. For Intel® Stratix® 10 devices, the previously compiled logic is imported into the compilation flow.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition compilation flow can preserve the placement and routing of the board interface partition via the exported Intel® Quartus® Prime Archive File. base.qar and base.qdb files contain all the database files for the base compilation of root_partition. The s10_ref Reference Platform is configured with the project revisions and partitioning that are necessary to implement the compilation flow. By default, the SDK invokes the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software on the top revision. This revision is configured to import and restore the base.qdb file, which has been pre-compiled and exported from a base revision compilation.
When developing your Custom Platform from the s10_ref Reference Platform, it is essential to maintain the flat.qsf, base.qsf, top.qsf, and opencl_bsp_ip.qsf Intel® Quartus® Prime Settings Files.
The s10_ref Reference Platform includes two additional partitions: the Top partition and the kernel partition. The Top partition contains all logic, and the kernel partition contains only the kernel logic.
