Incremental Implementation refers to the implementation phase of the incremental compile design flow that:
- Preserves QoR predictability by reusing prior placement and routing from a reference design.
- Speeds up place and route run time or attempts last mile timing closure.
A diagram of the incremental implementation design flow is provided in the following figure.
This diagram also illustrates the incremental synthesis flow. For more details about incremental synthesis flow, see the "Incremental Synthesis" section in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Synthesis (UG901).
