Im gettin the following during my cts. Can anyone explain what the error and how to get over it? Im using 8.1 Encounter. Any help is greatly appreciated..
Tracing Clock abc/OSOUT ...

CTS cannot proceed. Please check the clock spec files and re-start CTS again
I just had something similar happen in my design.
You have two converging clocks, which in itself is not a problem, but one of the clocks has an exclude pin and the other does not. Look in your clock spec file at the two clocks mentioned. Find the one that has the ExcludePin setting and copy that to the definition for the other clock. Then rerun CTS.
In reply to Kari:
1. This is my first run. I generated clock spec using clockDesign command. It doesnot have any "Excluded pins" in it. As i see from the cts log, i think the tool is assigning "Excluded pins" by itself wherever necessary. Am I right?
2. And in the case of converging clock, only one of the pin should be an "Excluded pin", right? Why declare the other one also as an "Excluded pin"?
In reply to libinpk:
Were you able to solve your issue? If the clock converges, that means it's the same path as another clock. You can't have a pin both included and excluded in the same clock path.
I have two converging clocks and i want to build tree using one clock and i want to keep other as excluded pin
By keeping so i am getting error as inconsistent constraints
In reply to nannasin28:
Thans for your response
I excluded that pin in one clock path because i want build it using another clock but still i am getting the issue
