I try to compile my personal code, but I got the following internal error. What is happened? Anyone help me?

Thanks.

Can you attach the design in qar? for me to reproduce seem to me this error like a bug.

I need to investigate and let you know.

Hello,
I am having the exact same issue.  I looked through my file system and ddb_nightfury_timing_corner_db does not exist.  It looks like maybe this file is missing from the quartus install files?


Thanks,

Brian

Hi,

 

I also only downloaded the Cyclone 10 device support and had the same issue on V23.1 Pro Edition. I installed the Arria 10 device package and was able to compile. 

 

Hope this helps,

Dan

Do you mind to attach the design in qar for the error one?

I need to look at the design for further investigation to move this forward otherwise it will be hard.

Hello,
I was able to resolve the issue by installing the Arria 10 files as Dan mentioned.  It looks like there are files missing if you download individual files and do not install he Arria Device files.

Thanks,
Brian
