126.96.36.199.2. Design Modification Flow
Use the design modification flow only after you qualify your design in the design creation flow.
When the design modification flow is active for a safety IP partition, the Fitter runs in Strict Preservation mode for that partition. The Assembler performs run-time checks that compare the Partial Settings Mask information matches the .psm file generated in the design creation flow. If the Assembler detects a mismatch, a "Bad Mask!" or "ASM_STRICT_PRESERVATION_BITS_UTILITY::compare_masked_byte_array failed" internal error message is shown. If you see either error message while compiling your design, contact Intel Premier Support for assistance.
When a change is made to any HDL source file that belongs to a safety IP, the default behavior of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software is to resynthesize and perform a clean place and route for that partition, which then activates the design creation flow for that partition. To change this default behavior and keep the design modification flow active, do the following:
- Use the partition export/import flow.
- Use the Design Partitions window to modify the design partition properties and turn on Ignore changes in source files and strictly use the specified netlist, if available.
The Fitter applies the same design flow to all partitions that belong to the same safety IP. If more than one safety IP is used in the design, the Fitter may evoke different flows for different safety IPs.
