Looks like the tool crashed during TIming anlaysis (STA). Have you tried the suggestion mentioned in the error file to see if it goes through?

 

Try setting the quartus.ini sta_odv_clock_path_dfs_max_depth=<integer> to a greater value (currently 33, -1 for unlimited).

 

Edit the quartus.ini file and search for the above line and set it at a higher value then -1 or 33. Try a few values and see if the STA goes through.

​Hi Abe

 

Thank you for your answer.

Yes I have tried to do this, but I can not find the file quartus.ini

Do you have any idea, in which folder can I find this file?

I am using Linux 64 bit

 

many thanks

You just create a new file and name it as quartus.ini. Put it in your project directory after.
