Why does the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro compilation show warning message: "Ignored set_max_skew at alt_e2550_ptp_fifo_top.sdc" when compiling FPGA design with 25G Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP ?

Description

Due to a problem with the 25G Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP v18.0 and earlier version, Intel® Quartus® Prime design compilation will show the warning message: "Ignored set_max_skew at alt_e2550_ptp_fifo_top.sdc" when implemented in VHDL and with multiple instances of the 25G Ethernet Intel FPGA IP in the design.  

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem:

In the file alt_e2550_ptp_fifo_top.sdc change:

FROM:

set inst_list [query_collection -list -all $inst]       

         foreach each_inst $inst_list {

TO:

foreach_in_collection each_inst_tmp $inst {       

         set each_inst [get_node_info -name $each_inst_tmp]

 

This problem has been fixed starting with Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro version 18.0.1
