4.1.2. Step 2: Assign Nodes to Signal Probe Pins

You can assign any node in the post-compilation netlist to a Signal Probe pin. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, click View > Node Finder, and filter by Signal Tap: post-fitting to view the nodes you can route.

You specify the node that connects to a Signal Probe pin with a Tcl command:

set_instance_assignment –name CONNECT_SIGNALPROBE_PIN <pin_name> \
     –to <node_name> 
pin_name
Specifies the name of the Signal Probe pin that connects to the node.
node_name
Specifies the full hierarchy path of the node you want to route.
