You may see the above error in Quartus® Prime software version 15.0 when implementing a transceiver design that contains greater than 16 channels and has a separate ADME (Altera Debug Master Endpoint) interface per channel in Arria® 10 and Cyclone® 10 devices.
To work around this problem, you can change the constant in the following file
–from :constant NUM_CLOCKS : natural := 0;
–to : constant NUM_CLOCKS : natural := 1;
This problem will be fixed in the future version of the Quartus Prime software.
