Tandem Configuration and Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX) designs may require additional considerations as these flows partition the physical resources into separate regions. These physical partitions should be considered when adding debug IPs to a design, such as VIO, ILA, MDM, and MIG-IP. A Debug Bridge IP configured for From PCIe-ext to BSCAN or From AXI to BSCAN should only be placed into the static partition of the design. When debug IPs are used inside of a DFX or Tandem Field Updates region, an additional debug BSCAN interface should be added to the dynamic region module definition and left unconnected in the dynamic region module instantiation.

To add the BSCAN interface to the Reconfigurable Partition definition the appropriate ports and port attributes should be added to the Reconfigurable Partition definition. The sample Verilog provided below can be used as a template for adding the BSCAN interface to the port declaration.

// BSCAN interface definition and attributes.
// This interface should be added to the DFX module definition
// and left unconnected in the DFX module instantiation.

When link_design is run, the exposed ports are connected to the static portion of the debug network through tool automation. The ILAs are also connected to the debug network as required by the design. There might also be an additional dbg_hub cell that is added at the top level of the design. For Tandem PCIe with Field Updates designs, the dbg_hub and tool inserted clock buffer(s) must be added to the appropriate design partition. The following is an example of the Tcl commands that can be run after opt_design to associate the dbg_hub primitives with the appropriate design partitions.

# Add the inserted dbg_hub cell to the appropriate design partition.
set_property HD.TANDEM_IP_PBLOCK Stage1_Main [get_cells dbg_hub]
# Add the clock buffer to the appropriate design partition.
