Agilex E tile - Error(20672): For HSSI E-tile, there is no path between HSSI REFCLK and core.

Hi, 

I am currently working on Intel Agilex FPGA (AGFB014R24B2E2V).  Quartus Prime pro version 22.2.0 build 94.

I generated my JESD204B example design for Agilex with given presets (LMF = 222).  The top file requires two clock as input refclk_xcvr and refclk_core. When I try giving any E tile (9A bank) clock to the refclk_core I get the below mentioned error during fitter stage.

 

Error(20672): For HSSI E-tile, there is no path between HSSI REFCLK and core. HSSI REFCLK divider "refclk_xcvr~inputFITTER_INSERTED" has core fanouts.
Error(16297): An error has occurred while trying to initialize the plan stage.
Error: Quartus Prime Fitter was unsuccessful. 2 errors, 1 warning
Error: Peak virtual memory: 4662 megabytes
Error: Processing ended: Mon Feb 6 14:19:33 2023
Error: Elapsed time: 00:01:36
Error: System process ID: 19236
Error(21794): Quartus Prime Full Compilation was unsuccessful. 4 errors, 1 warning

 

Kindly help me in this regard. Also, please clarify why we can not use the same clock for both. 

Please let me know if more information required from my side.

 

Thank you

Regards

Shubhangi

Hi Shubhangi,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

Apologize for the delayed response.

Based on the Agilex OPN number, I believe that you are using Intel Devkit DK-SI-AGF014EA (Prod) type.

Have you set the VID settings as below?

6.1. Add SmartVID settings in Intel® Quartus® Prime QSF file6.1. Add SmartVID settings in Intel® Quartus® Prime QSF file

 

You are required to input above script/code to avoid Quartus from generating an error due to incomplete SmartVID settings.

You may change the scripts listed below in you project QSF file.

Please ensure that there are no other similar settings with different values.

 

For more information you may refer to below link:

Intel® Agilex™ F-Series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit User Guide - 6.1. Add SmartVID settings in Intel® Quartus® Prime QSF file 

 

Hope this helps solve your issue.

Thank you.

 

Best Regards,
