3.5.3. Performance and Resource Considerations

When you perform logic analysis of your design, you can see the necessary trade-off between runtime flexibility, timing performance, and resource usage. The Signal Tap logic analyzer allows you to select runtime configurable parameters to balance the need for runtime flexibility, speed, and area.

The default values of the runtime configurable parameters provide maximum flexibility, so you can complete debugging as quickly as possible; however, you can adjust these settings to determine whether there is a more appropriate configuration for your design. Because performance results are design-dependent, try these options in different combinations until you achieve the desired balance between functionality, performance, and utilization.
