To export and import results of a module implementation, Hierarchical Design flows use checkpoints. Checkpoints archive the logical design, physical design, and module constraints and are the only file needed to fully restore a design.

A saved checkpoint can only be read into the same part/package/speed grade combination in which it was originally generated.
