1.1.3. Debugging Ecosystem
A very important distinction in the system debugging tools is how they interact with the design. All debugging tools in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software allow you to read the information from the design node, but only a subset allow you to input data at runtime:
|Debugging Tool||Read Data from Design||Input Values into the Design||Comments|
|Signal Tap logic analyzer,||Yes||No||General purpose troubleshooting tools optimized for probing signals in a register transfer level (RTL) netlist|
|Logic Analyzer Interface|
|In-System Sources and Probes||Yes||Yes||These tools allow to:
|Virtual JTAG Interface|
|In-System Memory Content Editor|
Taken together, the set of on-chip debugging tools form a debugging ecosystem. The set of tools can generate a stimulus to and solicit a response from the logic under test, providing a complete solution.
