Error (12061): Can't synthesize current design -- Top partition does not contain any logic

Hello, I am fairly new to Verilog HDL and I started with trying to print out a simple "hello world". But when i tried to synthesize my code, the error " Top partition does not contain ant logic" pops up. Anyone knows how to tackle this? i have set up the project and the top entity module name the same.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Verilog that you feed into the synthesis tools needs to represent constructs that imply hardware (gates, registers, memory, etc).

 

You might start by reading this:

https://people.ece.cornell.edu/land/courses/ece5760/DE2/tut_quartus_intro_verilog.pdf

and this:

https://www.jameswhanlon.com/writing-synthesizable-verilog.html

 

If you had a module like this:

 

module top;
$write("Hello, world!");
endmodule

 

that is NOT a construct that can be synthesized into logic.

That kind of verilog code usually used for simulation purposes. Quartus is not a simulator tool, it Analyze & Synthesis code.

I believe the resources provided by ak6dn should be sufficient for you to learn.


Alternatively, you may checkout Nandland for beginner coding.

Have fun coding!
