Internal Error: Sub-system: PDEV_QPA, File: /quartus/power/pdev_qpa/pdev_qpa_manager.cpp, Line: 633


  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
  • Intel® FPGA Power Thermal Calculator

    Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software, you might see this internal error when generating the Power and Thermal Calculator Import (QPTC) file. This problem only affects Intel Agilex® 7 devices without a hard processor system (HPS) CPU core. For example, devices with an ordering part number (OPN) starting with AGFA.


    To work around this problem, follow these steps:

    1. Target the design to use the equivalent FB OPN. For example, instead of AGFA022R25A2E2V use AGFB022R25A2E2V.
    2. Run the synthesis and fitter compilation stages.
    3. Generate the QPTC file. 
    4. Import the QPTC file into the Power and Thermal Calculator.
    5. Go to the HPS page and confirm that the HPS is unused.

    This is the equivalent of using the FA version of the OPN.

    This problem is fixed beginning with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software version 22.1.
