Document Table of Contents Signal Tap Logic Using Critical Resources

If your design is resource constrained, follow these tips to reduce the logic or memory the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer uses:
  • Disable runtime configurable options—Disabling runtime configurability for advanced trigger conditions or runtime configurable options in the State-based triggering flow results in fewer LEs.
  • Minimize the number of segments in the acquisition buffer—You can reduce the logic resources that the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer uses if you limit the segments in your sampling buffer
  • Disable the Data Enable for signals that you use only for triggering—By default, Signal Tap Logic Analyzer enables data enable options for all signals. Turning off the data enable option for signals you use only as trigger inputs saves on memory resources.
