Hi,

 

I am getting the following error message from the reference design:

This error message indicates that Quartus Prime was unable to find a file called base_static.qdb, which is expected to exist in the project directory. This file is typically generated during the compilation process and contains information about the design hierarchy and partitioning.

One potential cause of this error is that the file base_static.qdb was accidentally deleted or moved from the project directory. In this case, restoring the file to its original location may resolve the issue. Another potential cause of this error is that the compilation process did not complete successfully and was unable to generate the base_static.qdb file. 

 

To resolve this issue, you should check that all files required for your design, including base_static.qdb, are in the correct locations and that your project settings are correctly configured to point to these files. You may also need to check that your design hierarchy is properly defined and that the top-level entity is correctly specified.

 

If the issue still persist, would you mind sharing the Quartus .qar project file with me so that I can investigate the issue directly? Since there are multiple designs with different devices, it would take some time to duplicate the correct issue.

Hi, 

 

I am using your reference design. The project is created by using the Makefile provided by the reference design. The compilation is done with the same version of Quartus software originally used with this reference design. 

Could you check your reference design provided at the link given above?

 

Thanks and best regards,

May I know have you compile the base revision of the PR design? before compiling the persona implementation revision?

Go to Project > Revision > Select the Base Revision. Compile the base revision design will generate the base_static.qdb file.
