Quartus Prime Pro 22.1 crashes when trying to use Signal Tap Logic Analyzer

Whenever I try to start the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer in a project using the Stratix 10 DX FPGA, Quartus will unconditionally crash with one of the following stack traces. This happens a few seconds after clicking the "Create" button in the template selection dialog while Signal Tap seems to be loading.

Does the Quartus exit with a specific project/design? Will it re-occur if run with different design?

If so, could you help share your project .qar as the engineering team will need it to debug the issue.


Could you try to run the Quartus software as administrator and see if the issue occur?

Indeed this issue only seems to occur with this specific project. Signal Tap works fine when using an example project generated through Platform Designer. Running Quartus as administrator does not help. I can share the .qar file, however, I'd prefer to do so privately. Can you give me an e-mail address or another means of communication where I can send the file to?

So I just open the .qar project and there is significant long loading time before the Quartus load the project.

Then I can open the Signal Tap GUI and click 'create' without any design compilation.

Is the correct way to duplicate the error? If not, could you help to share the steps?

The long loading times are an issue, too. Is there anything that can be done about that?

I am not sure whether that's important, but I had selected the "mm_ddr4" revision when trying to use Signal Tap. I've also noticed that *sometimes* it works without crashing (I believe about 1 in 5 times) and only crashes again after Quartus was restarted. Perhaps try restarting Quartus a few times if it doesn't occur for you.

I will need consult the engineering team regarding the long loading time.

Please expert that this may takes times depending on the issue complexity.

Just to let you know that we may need some time to work on this.

I think there is something wrong with your .qdb file in your project.

I cant seem to compile the project ​until I removed the .qdb file and set the preservation level to Not Set in the design partition window. I then able to open the project in a short loading time afterwards.


I tested a few times with the signal tap and it do not crash at all. Unfortunately, I am not able to help you if this is an intermittent issue.

Sorry for the late reply. I've found that Signal Tap works fine in Quartus 22.2 (whereas it's still not working properly for me in 22.1), so that issue is probably solved for me. However, can you elaborate on a possible solution for the .qdb file issue? I have seen the long loading times in several different projects. Is it a viable (and safe in terms of data loss) solution to delete the .qdb file and recompile the whole project?
