Recompile the Design

After assigning nodes to the Signal Probe pins, run Rapid Recompile. Rapid Recompile preserves timing and reduces compilation time by reusing previous results whenever possible.

You can run Rapid Recompile from the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, a command line executable, or a Tcl script.

Tcl Command to Recompile the Design

# Run the fitter with --recompile to preserve timing
# and quickly connect the Signal Probe pins
execute_module -tool fit -args {--recompile}   

After recompilation, you are ready to program the device and debug the design.
