My post was accidently truncated, here is the full text:
I have a Terasic DE10-Lite board that contains an FPGA marked with device number 10M50DAF484C7G
The DE10-Lite User Manual said to install Quartus Prime version 16.0 or later, so today I installed the version 18.0 Lite Edition.
The issue is when I create a new project in Quartus, it only lists device 10M50DAF484C6GES for the DE-Lite board. Notice the last 4 characters do not match the device number on my board. Do I need to install a different version of Quartus Prime? If yes, which version?
I am not sure why this is happening on my install but fortunately, I found a work around. After the project is created, I click the device in the Project Navagator then it opens a window where it lets me select my exact device (10M50DAF484C7G). So far it is working fine this way.
