Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 19.4, you may see this failure when running the assembler for Intel® Arria® 10 designs after running the update_mif flow using the following command:
quartus_cdb <project name> --update_mif.
To work around this problem, use the followng alternative flow to update your mif files.
- Enable the "Enable intermediate snapshot" in Assignment -> Settings -> Complier Settings
- Update the Memory Initialization file
- Run the quartus_fit --finalize instead of quartus_cdb --update_mif
This problem is fixed beginning with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 20.1
