Document Table of Contents Trigger Lock Mode

Trigger lock mode restricts changes to only the configuration settings that you specify as Configurable at runtime. The runtime configurable settings for the Custom Trigger Flow tab are on by default.

Note: You may get some performance advantages by disabling some of the runtime configurable options.

You can restrict changes to your Signal Tap configuration to include only the options that do not require a recompilation. Trigger lock-mode allows you to make changes that reflect immediately in the device.

  1. On the Setup tab, point to Lock Mode and select Allow trigger condition changes only.
    Figure 77. Allow Trigger Conditions Change Only
  2. Modify the Trigger Flow conditions.

Incremental Route lock-mode restricts the GUI to only allow changes that require an Incremental Route compilation using Rapid Recompile. Use Rapid Recompile to perform incremental routing and gain a 2-4x speedup over the initial full compilation.
