Vector_add compilation failed on Intel FPGA for SDK 20.3

Hello,

I tried to compile the vector_add sample code on Intel FPGA SDK for Opencl version  20.3 with my host pc in Ubuntu 16.04, 4.4 generic kernel and a de10_pro development board with Stratix 10 FPGA.

 

The diagnostics passed after I install the driver but when I tried compiling the vector_add sample code, I got the following error:

 

Error: Can't run the Timing Analyzer (quartus_sta) -- Fitter (quartus_fit) failed or was not run. Run the Fitter (quartus_fit) successfully before running the Timing Analyzer (create_timing_netlist).
Error: Quartus Prime Timing Analyzer was unsuccessful. 1 error, 0 warnings
Error: Quartus Fitter has failed! Breaking execution...
Error (23035): Tcl error:
Error (23031): Evaluation of Tcl script compile_script.tcl unsuccessful
Error: Quartus Prime Compiler Database Interface was unsuccessful. 3 errors, 0 warnings
For more details, full Quartus compile output can be found in files quartuserr.tmp and quartus_sh_compile.log.
Error: Compiler Error, not able to generate hardware

 

What would be the cause of this error? I also attached the quartus_sh_compile.log for further reference.

 

Regards,

Justine

I have got exactly the same issue.

Is there any solution for this?

Hello,

 

I believe this is some problem with the 20.3 version you can try the following options for a temporary workaround for this issue

 

20.3 / Ubuntu 18.04.5 with default Gnome3 Desktop with english language & regional format settings : no SIN Internal error anymore

20.3 / Ubuntu 18.04.5 with KDE Plasma Desktop with english language but german regional format settings : no SIN Internal error

20.3 / Ubuntu 18.04.5 with default Gnome3 Desktop with english language but german regional format settings : = SIN Internal error

 

You can also try to change the Regional Format to English (US), then programming the image into FLASH. Hope this helps.

What is up with Intel and its support.  I have a similar problem.  These boards costs several thousands of dollars plus the cost of the toolsets.  Can we get a response please...

@Quantitative_Finance The error messages in your log very clearly outline the source of the problem: you have not installed Startix 10 device support.
