Hi, 

 

I need update my Cyclone II to Cyclone 10, but when I try compile the code, Quartus return error message below:

 

" Error (292019): IP core Nios II Processor (6AF7_00A2) not supported in device family Cyclone 10 LP. Choose a new device family or upgrade your IP core to a newer version. The Intel FPGA Knowledge Database contains many articles with specific details on how to resolve this error. Visit the Knowledge Database at https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/knowledge-base/kdb-filter.html and search for this specific error message number.

I use Quartus II 7.2sp3 with valide license. 

To update I started using  Quartus Prime Lite Edition 20.1.

I need a new license to be able compile the code or is it a bug of Quartus Prime?

If you use Cyclone 10 LP device you can use Quartus Prime Lite, if you use other Cyclone 10 models you cannot use Lite edition and you must have new license for paid editions.

The error message is pretty obvious and explicit. Your existing project on the Cyclone II uses a specific Nios II processor IP core.

In the new device you select, the Cyclone 10 LP, that Nios II processor core you are using is NOT supported.

So you can't just change the device family, change the Quartus version, and recompile your existing design.

You have to replace the Nios II core with a supported/updated Nios II core on your new device (Cyclone 10 LP).

Well:  "IP core Nios II Processor (6AF7_00A2) not supported in device family Cyclone 10 LP. Choose a new device family or upgrade your IP core to a newer version." is pretty straightforward.

 

It is not uncommon at all to have to upgrade your IP module to a newer version if you move to a newer version of Quartus (moving from v7.2 to v20.1 is a significant change), and especially if you change the device family. You are doing both.

You will need to create a new Nios II from beginning, and not to copy the old Nios design.
