Why does the Hybrid Memory Cube example design not generate in Quartus Prime Pro 17.1 when configured with 8 Lanes ?


  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
  • Hybrid Memory Cube Controller

    The Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) IP can be configured for either full width mode (16 lanes) or half width mode (8 lanes).

    Due to a problem with the HMC example design in Quartus® Prime Pro 17.1, it does not generate when configured with 8 lanes and shows an error message :

    Error: Failed to generate example design example_design to: <directory_path>


    There is no workaround in Quartus Prime Pro 17.1.
    This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future release of the Quartus Prime software.

    HMC example designs will generate successfully using these width configurations and Quartus versions:

    • Quartus Prime Pro all supported versions using full width configuration
    • Quartus Prime Pro versions before 17.1 using half width configuration
    • Quartus Prime Standard all supported versions using half or full width configuration
