4.1.2. Reserve Signal Probe Pins

Signal Probe pins can only be reserved after a full compilation. You can also probe any unused I/Os of the device. Assigning sources is a simple process after reserving Signal Probe pins. The sources for Signal Probe pins are the internal nodes and registers in the post-compilation netlist that you want to probe.
Note: Although you can reserve Signal Probe pins using many features within the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, including the Pin Planner and the Tcl interface, you should use the Signal Probe Pins dialog box to create and edit your Signal Probe pins.
