1.1. System Debugging Tools Portfolio

The Intel® Quartus® Prime software provides a portfolio of system debugging tools for real-time verification of your design.

System debugging tools provide visibility by routing (or “tapping”) signals in your design to debugging logic. The Compiler includes the debugging logic in your design and generates programming files that you download into the FPGA or CPLD for analysis.

Each tool in the system debugging portfolio uses a combination of available memory, logic, and routing resources to assist in the debugging process. Because different designs have different constraints and requirements, you can choose the tool that matches the specific requirements for your design, such as the number of spare pins available or the amount of logic or memory resources remaining in the physical device.
