Faster Timing Closure with Incremental Block-Based Compilation Flow
Team members can architect the design into segments, then individually develop and achieve timing closure on each partition of the design. Bringing the global design together is simple since each block maintains its placement and timing.
With these features, you can preserve, empty, or export the contents of a partition. A partition that has been preserved, emptied, or exported is called a design block. Using design blocks introduces the concepts of Block-Based Compilation and Design Block Reuse.
Incremental Block-Based Compilation is preserving or emptying a partition within a project. This works with core partitions and requires no additional files or floor planning. The partition can be emptied, preserved at Source, Synthesis, and Final snapshots.
