synth_intel - synthesis for Intel (Altera) FPGAs.

    synth_intel [options]

This command runs synthesis for Intel FPGAs.

    -family <max10 | cyclone10lp | cycloneiv | cycloneive>
        generate the synthesis netlist for the specified family.
        MAX10 is the default target if no family argument specified.
        For Cyclone IV GX devices, use cycloneiv argument; for Cyclone IV E, use cycloneive.
        For Cyclone V and Cyclone 10 GX, use the synth_intel_alm backend instead.

    -top <module>
        use the specified module as top module (default='top')

    -vqm <file>
        write the design to the specified Verilog Quartus Mapping File. Writing of an
        output file is omitted if this parameter is not specified.
        Note that this backend has not been tested and is likely incompatible
        with recent versions of Quartus.

    -vpr <file>
        write BLIF files for VPR flow experiments. The synthesized BLIF output file is not
        compatible with the Quartus flow. Writing of an
        output file is omitted if this parameter is not specified.

    -run <from_label>:<to_label>
        only run the commands between the labels (see below). an empty
        from label is synonymous to 'begin', and empty to label is
        synonymous to the end of the command list.

    -iopads
        use IO pad cells in output netlist

    -nobram
        do not use block RAM cells in output netlist

    -noflatten
        do not flatten design before synthesis

    -retime
        run 'abc' with '-dff -D 1' options
