Quartus produces different synthesis for same design.


I synthesized my design in Quartus for Arria 10 in a remote server. In my memory instantiation, it is saying that it is unable to infer a Block RAM due to asynchronous reads. I tried to synthesize again in my local machine, this time setting a DE1-SoC FPGA as the target device. It properly inferred my memory instantiations as BRAMs. To test my sanity, I decided to bring it to board level in my DE1; the design functioned as expected. I'm just wondering why Quartus produces different synthesis for the same design? Are there some compiler commands that I can use to force Quartus to infer my memory instantiations as BRAM? This is significant since I am unable to produce accurate timings and area estimates. Thank you.


From the terminal in remote Server:
