5.3.8. Specifying Pipeline Settings

The Pipeline factor setting indicates the number of pipeline registers that the Intel® Quartus® Prime software can add to boost the fMAX of the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer.

To specify the pipeline factor from the Signal Tap GUI:

  • In the Signal Configuration pane, specify a pipeline factor ranging from 0 to 5. The default value is 0.
Note: Setting the pipeline factor does not guarantee an increase in fMAX, as the pipeline registers may not be in the critical paths.
