I download an example for the cyclone , when i use then example on the A10 .get error like this :

Error (14566): The Fitter cannot place 6 periphery component(s) due to conflicts with existing constraints (6 pin(s)). Fix the errors described in the submessages, and then rerun the Fitter. The Intel FPGA Knowledge Database may also contain articles with information on how to resolve this periphery placement failure. Review the errors and then visit the Knowledge Database at https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/knowledge-base/search.html and search for this specific error message number.

Design examples are for specific development kits and devices (and Quartus versions).  If you want to adapt a design example for your own board, at least choose one that's targeted to your selected device (Arria 10).  Then there will be fewer things to adjust to match up with your own board design.

Hi Mark

It is not recommended and not a common practice to directly port a design from Cyclone V to Arria 10. You might hit into IP incompatible, pin assignment, and configuration issues. I would suggest you to look for Arria 10 sample design or create your own design by referring to your Cyclone V sample design.

Sample design for Arria 10 (NIOS related):

Thanks.
