Intel's Quartus® Prime and Quartus II software includes a wide range of features to help you optimize your design for area and timing. This page provides resources to help you with design optimization, physical synthesis, and Design Space Explorer (DSE).
The Quartus Prime and Quartus II software offers physical synthesis netlist optimization to optimize designs further than the standard compilation process. Physical synthesis helps improve the performance of your design, regardless of the synthesis tool used.
DSE automates the search for the settings that give the best results in any individual design. DSE explores the design space of your design, applies various optimization techniques, and analyzes the results to help you discover the best settings for your design.
For a brief overview and demo of the incremental compilation feature, refer to the Optimization product feature page.
