Hi @khyam 

 

I found a case with similar error although the user seems to resolve the issue on their own.

https://community.intel.com/t5/Application-Acceleration-With/How-to-correct-the-signal-tap-relative-...

May I know what kind of design that are you using to run the compilation? Have you try to run an example design that is available in our Intel website?

I used sample example nlb_mode_0_stp, its has signal tap file(.stp). I used mmlink utility of OPAE2.0 for debugging the Arria 10 GX and D5005 PAC card with system console and quartus signal tap tool. The AFU with .stp file compiled successfully and I can see the signal tap instance but receive the following error when trying to acquire data.

"Error (261005): can't find the instance. Download a design with SRAM Object File Containing this instance."

 

When I used my own design, that is integrated with Xeon host processor in OPAE Platform. without Signal tap (.stp) file, it compiled successfully, but when i try to add .stp file instance in my design, I am getting below error.

Error (11176): Alt_sld_fab_0.alt_sld_fab_0: add_instance: Can't create component type altera_sld_agent_endpoint_tieoff

 

Yup looked the post you provide, but he didn't explained, how he resolve the issue.

Hi @khyam 

 

Could you try to cross check with the user guide flow in step 1 & step 2 and compile the design again?

Let me know how it goes.

Solution:

 

Add below command to the afu.qsf file to set stp file

set_global_assignment -name  VERILOG_MACRO "INCLUDE_REMOTE_STP"

then run the design using $run.sh command

or

Add this line to filelist.txt file.

+define+INCLUDE_REMOTE_STP

Then build the design using following command

afu_synth_setup --source filelist.txt build/stp

So, It will add signal tap host instance in the design.
