This problem affects DDR2 and DDR3 interfaces using the hard memory controller in Arria V or Cyclone V devices.
When using Qsys to generate an Arria V or Cyclone V external memory controller, you might encounter the following error message during the Quartus II fitter phase:
Error (15332): Port SHIFTEN of cyclonev_pll_reconfig "<module>:<instance>|<memory_module>_pll0:pll0|pll1~PLL_RECONFIG" has 10 connections, but the maximum bus width of port SHIFTEN is 9..
The error message occurs when the
of an external memory interface is exposed to a top-level conduit
Qsys currently issues an incorrect warning, advising you to
pll_sharing conduit to a top-level port.
When you export the conduit, it prevents these signals from being
trimmed correctly by the fitter because they are assigned to top-level
pins. The fitter error then occurs.
