2.3.2. Defining Fault Injection Areas

You can define specific regions of the FPGA for fault injection using a Sensitivity Map Header (.smh) file.

The SMH file stores the coordinates of the device CRAM bits, their assigned region (ASD Region), and criticality. During the design process you use hierarchy tagging to create the region. Then, during compilation, the Intel® Quartus® Prime Assembler generates the SMH file. The Fault Injection Debugger limits error injections to specific device regions you define in the SMH file.
