4.1.7. What a Signal Probe Compilation Does

After a full compilation, you can start a Signal Probe compilation either manually or automatically. A Signal Probe compilation performs the following functions:
  • Validates Signal Probe pins
  • Validates your specified Signal Probe sources
  • Adds registers into Signal Probe paths, if applicable
  • Attempts to route from Signal Probe sources through registers to Signal Probe pins

To run the Signal Probe compilation immediately after a full compilation, on the Tools menu, click Signal Probe Pins. In the Signal Probe Pins dialog box, click Start Check & Save All Netlist Changes.

To run a Signal Probe compilation manually after a full compilation, on the Processing menu, point to Start and click Start Signal Probe Compilation.

Note: You must run the Fitter before a Signal Probe compilation. The Fitter generates a list of all internal nodes that can serve as Signal Probe sources.

Turn the Signal Probe enable option on or off in the Signal Probe Pins dialog box to enable or disable each Signal Probe pin.
