The ILA cores that you add to your design appear in the Hardware window under the target device. If you do not see the ILA cores appear, right-click the device and select Refresh Device. This re-scans the FPGA or ACAP and refreshes the Hardware window.

Note: If you still do not see the ILA core after programming and/or refreshing the FPGA or ACAP, check to make sure the device was programmed with the appropriate .bit file and check to make sure the implemented design contains an ILA core. Also, check to make sure the appropriate .ltx probes file that matches the .bit file is associated with the device.

Click the ILA core (called hw_ila_1 in the following figure) to see its properties in the ILA Core Properties window. You can see all the probes corresponding to the ILA core by using the Windows > Debug Probes menu option, which displays the Debug Probes window as shown in the following figure.
