4.2. Intel® Quartus® Prime SEU Software Settings

Use the Error Detection CRC settings in the Device and Pin Options window to set the minimum SEU interval, enable error detection and internal scrubbing features, enable the generation of .smh file, and enable fault injection.
  1. From the Intel® Quartus® Prime menu, click Assignments > Device.
  2. In the Device window, click Device and Pin Options.
  3. In the Device and Pin Options window, select Error Detection CRC category and specify the following settings:
    Setting Description
    Enable error detection check Turn on to enable the error detection feature. This option is required for sensitivity processing and fault injection, or if you want to observe the SEU_ERROR pin behavior.
    Minimum SEU interval Specify a value of 0 to 10000 milliseconds to set the minimum time between two checks of the same bit. To check as frequently as possible, specify 0.

    The actual minimum interval may be higher than the value you specify. The System Message window reports the actual value when you select a generated .sof file as an input file in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Programming File Generator or Programmer.

    Note: To determine the minimum SEU detection interval of the device, set Minimum SEU interval to 0 or any value that is lower than the actual minimum interval.
    Enable internal scrubbing Turn on to enable the error correction feature. This option is required for sensitivity processing.
    Generate SEU sensitivity map file (.smh) Turn on to generate the .smh file. This option is required for sensitivity processing.
    Allow SEU fault injection Turn on to enable injecting fault using the Fault Injection Debugger.
