Pin Planner Command (Assignments Menu)

You open the Pin Planner by clicking Assignments > Pin Planner.

Launches the Pin Planner, which allows you to easily make assignments to device I/O pins within a graphical representation of the target device. You can quickly locate specific I/O pins and assign design elements or other properties to ensure compatibility with your PCB layout. The Quartus® Prime software uses these assignments to place and route your design during device programming. The Pin Planner can also help with early pin planning, by allowing you to visualize and assign nodes not yet defined in the design.
