Cannot instantiate Cyclone V Hard Processor System in Platform Designer 18.1

Software: Platform Designer 18.1 Build 625

Steps to reproduce:

  1. File -> New System...
  2. From IP Catalog select Library / Processors and Peripherals / Hard Processor Systems / Arria V/Cyclone V Hard Processor System
  3. click Add...

 

Got error message and all in/out ports are missing in 'System Contents' view.

 

Error:

  ("if" test expression)

Comment:

I have checked ip/altera/hps/util/pin_mux_db.tcl

My guess is that run_quartus_tcl_command does not handle "@" in my ${quartus_script_path} = /home/xxxyyy123@zzz.local/intelFPGA_lite...

 

Any quick workaround?

Managed to find workaround by myself:

 

When working on linux.

It looks like Platform Designer scripts does not handle @ in the installation directory ( $QSYS_ROOTDIR)

Reinstalled somewhere else eg.: /opt/quartus

 

Comment:

Actually it is mentioned in documentation:

No special characters or symbols, such as !$%@^&*<>,

Hi,

 

Also, it is a good practice to not use space instead use underscore "_"when renaming/creating projects folder names.

 

The same rule applies when you are going to use the SoC EDS Command Shell.
