Directed optimization of FPGA VIs allows you to notify the compiler that you want specific code to meet certain performance and resource criteria, also known as directives. The compiler then makes optimizations to try to meet the performance and resource directives you set. Before you can specify performance and resource directives for code, you must explicitly designate a VI for directed optimization. This designation enables configuration options in the editor that you use to specify the directives, and it indicates to the compiler that the directives apply to only the code in the designated VI.
To complete this task, you'll need an existing VI on either the host or an FPGA target in SystemDesigner, or you'll need to create a new VI by selectingon the host or an FPGA target.
Complete the following steps to designate a VI for directed optimization:
