Hardware Probes

PolarFire and PolarFire SoC devices have built-in probe points that enhance the ability to debug design logic within a device through the live and active probe features. These enhanced debug features embedded into the device hardware provide access to logic elements and enable real-time monitoring of inputs and outputs without the need to recompile the design.

In many cases, the hardware probe capabilities such as live probe can be used along with the Identify RTL debugger and external test techniques to debug issues in a subsystem.
