Error(332000): can't read "pll_instance_name": no such variable

Description

Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 17.1 and earlier, you may see this error message when compiling a design that includes the LVDS IP. This problem occurs when the IP is in external PLL mode and targets an Intel Stratix® 10 device.

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem, comment out the following line from the LVDS IP SDC file

set_max_delay_in_fit_or_false_path_in_sta_through_no_warn ${pll_instance_name}|lock $max_delay

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future release of the Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition software.
