Sometimes, it is necessary to add constraint, such as set_disable_timing to let tool ignore timing path which should not be checked, critical path would be fixed by tool correctly. set_disable_timing -from in1 -to pass [get_cells dll/dll_delay_line_master/delay_0] set_disable_timing -from in1 -to pass [get_cells dll/dll_delay_line_clk_wr/delay_0] #ezp set_disable_timing -from in1 -to pass [get_cells dll_delay_line/delay_0] #ezp set_disable_timing -from in1… read more »

update clock latency

Pre CTS or placement, clock latency, skew, transition are considered as ideal zero, but tool add clock buffer/inverter in CTS period in order to minimums clock latency/skew/transition as much as possible, clock tree has insertion delay after CTS. Post CTS and post route, comparing to datapath delay change, clock path in launch path ‘stretch’, especially… read more »
