1.11. On-Chip Debug for PR Designs

You cannot instantiate a Signal Tap block inside a PR region. If you must monitor signals within a PR region for debug purposes, bring those signals to the ports of the PR region.

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software does not support the Incremental Signal Tap feature for PR designs. After you instantiate the Signal Tap block inside the static region, you must recompile your design. When you recompile your design, the static region may have a modified implementation and you must also recompile your PR revisions. If you modify an existing Signal Tap instance you must also recompile your entire design; base revision and reconfigurable revisions.

Figure 20. Using Signal Tap with a PR Design You can instantiate the SignalTap II block in the static region of the design and probe the signals you want to monitor.

You can use other on-chip debug features in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, such as the In-System Sources and Probes or Signal Probe, to debug a PR design. As in the case of SignalTap, In-System Sources and Probes can only be instantiated within the static region of a PR design. If you have to probe any signal inside the PR region, you must bring those signals to the ports of the PR region in order to monitor them within the static region of the design.
