During optimization, a lot of empty modules seem to be created.As part of the Encounter input process, we can ignore these, but we would like to remove them prior to encounter.
Any suggestions fort the best/easiest or recommended method for doing this?
In reply to grasshopper:
Sorry, I seem to have made a mistake. I was informed by the layout engineer (encounter) that there were empty modules, and we both assumed that they were present in the netlist from RTL Compiler to Encounter.
Having checked, it seems that this is not the case, and that Encounter is somehow creating empty modules.
We need to check why this is.
