7.2. Running the In-System Memory Content Editor

The In-System Memory Content Editor has three separate panes: the Instance Manager, the JTAG Chain Configuration, and the Hex Editor.

The Instance Manager pane displays all available run-time modifiable memories and constants in your FPGA device. The JTAG Chain Configuration pane allows you to program your FPGA and select the Intel FPGA device in the chain to update.

Using the In-System Memory Content Editor does not require that you open a project. The In-System Memory Content Editor retrieves all instances of run-time configurable memories and constants by scanning the JTAG chain and sending a query to the specific device selected in the JTAG Chain Configuration pane.

If you have more than one device with in-system configurable memories or constants in a JTAG chain, you can launch multiple In-System Memory Content Editors within the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to access the memories and constants in each of the devices. Each In-System Memory Content Editor can access the in-system memories and constants in a single device.
