Check Connection Table in Fitter Report

When you compile a design with Signal Probe pins, Intel® Quartus® Prime software generates a connection report table. To see this report, click Processing > Compilation Report, open the Fitter > In-System Debugging folder, and click Connections to Signal Probe pins.

The Status column informs whether or not the routing attempt from the nodes to the Signal Probe pins succeeded.

Table 1.  Status of Signal Probe Connection
Status Description
Connected Routing succeeded.
Unconnected Routing did not succeed. Possible reasons are:
  • Node belongs to an IO cell or another hard IP, thus cannot be routed.
  • Node hierarchy path does not exist in the design.
  • Node is not Signal Tap: post-fitting.

Connections to Signal Probe Pins in the Compilation Report

Alternatively, you can find the Signal Probe connection information in the Fitter report file (<project_name>.fit.rpt).
