In Quartus we set the VHDL version with Settings -> Compiler Settings -> VHDL Input. How to inform the platform viewer about the VHDL version?

I am using the custom types and written those in the package. I am using them unconstrained like below

type mydatatype is array (integer range <>) of unsigned;

And with the settings the VHDL version to 2008, I could analyze and synthesize in Quartus. I would like to make component with the code I have written so that can be used in the Platform Generator. So when I try to do that, I get an error

element type for array type cannot be unconstrained

How to set the VHDL version in Platform Generator to get rid of the error?

 

Best Regards

Hello,

In Quartus go to Assignments / Settings

And in the settings dialog box go to Compiler Settings / Vhdl input.

I am already using the settings in Quartus. I want to use the same sources and make a Qsys-component.

My question was how to set the VHDL version in Platform Generator(Qsys).

Hi MakV,

 

May I know what edition (Standard/Pro) and version you are using?

 

Thanks.

Hi MakV, Referring to https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/po/ss-quartus-comparison.pd..., VHDL 2008 is not supported in the Standard edition. Thanks.
