Reserve Signal Probe Pins

You create and reserve a pin for Signal Probe with a Tcl command:

set_global_assignment –name CREATE_SIGNALPROBE_PIN <pin_name>
Specifies the name of the Signal Probe pin.

Optionally, you can assign locations for the Signal Probe pins. If you do not assign a location, the Fitter places the pins automatically.

Note: If from the onset of the debugging process you know which internal signals you want to route, you can reserve pins and assign nodes before compilation. This early assignment removes the recompilation step from the flow.
