Chip planner is broken in quartus 22.4 and 23.1 both Windows 10 and Linux versions

22.3 is OK both Windows 10 and Linux

Any solution?

Hello,

I see Chip Planner regularly working in QPP 22.4 with different designs.

Hi FvM,

Thanks for tests. It turned out something has happened in device migration settings between 22.3pro and 22.4pro.

I use Cyclone 10CX105YF780E5G and migration device 10CX150YF780E5G. Even when I start new design with migration set, chip planner fails. Without migration, it works fine.

BUT there is a caveat, once you set migration and remove it later through menu, quartus still keeps in QSF file

assignement

 

set_global_assignment -name DEVICE_MIGRATION_LIST 10CX105YF780E5G

 

which cause chip planner fail. It must be manually deleted from QSF.

As I need device migration, I need to keep this assignment

So, I consider this behaviour a bug in quartus

Hi,


I suspect that this is due to device installation.

What is your target device, can you make sure it has been installed in these versions of Quartus?

Hi Nurina,

Thanks for reply. I use Cyclone 10GX and it was correctly installed.

I found a bug in quartus, see my reply above

I don't how to pass this to support. With ALTERA I had support account for bugs and problems communication

but with INTEL it was refused

Thank you.

Can you also share the 22.2 design so I can reproduce the steps? I would like to check if this happens when migrating to other Quartus versions too.

Hi Peter,


Please ignore my previous comment. I'm able to recreate the project in 22.2.
