During CTS-run I've defined my clocktree as below: AutoCTSRootPin TIMMCORE/u_core/u_coss/u_efc/u_fb_fs/f_wre_reg/Q MaxDelay 7.0ns # set_clock_latency MinDelay 6.7ns # default value MaxSkew 300ps # set_clock_uncertainty SinkMaxTran 900ps # set_clock_transition BufMaxTran 900ps # set_clock_transition Buffer dly1x3pdv dly2x3pdv dly2x8pdv dly3x3pdv RouteType standard_clk AddDriverCell cnbfx6pdv PadBufAfterGate NO NoGating NO DetailReport YES RouteClkNet YES PostOpt YES ExcludedPin + TIMMCORE/u_core/u_coss/u_efc/u_fb_fs/loc_tdo7_reg/TI LeafPin + TIMMCORE/u_core/u_coss/u_efc/u_flash/WRE END But after CTS, the delay from the clock root to */TI as same as the delay to the */WRE. My expecting is that the */TI pin should be excluded from the clocktree. Ps. I'm using (cadence_fe 04.20-s315_1_USR2 )
I've just found that when you define (SetDPinAsSync YES) in the CTS-configuration file then it works. From user guider SetDPinAsSync YES | NO Controls whether CTS automatically treats the D-pins of flip-flops as synchronous pins. D-pins include Data pins Enable pins Scan-in pins Scan-enable pins Synchronous set and reset pins Default: If you omit this statement, CTS treats the D-pins of flip-flops as excluded pins. That is, CTS does not treat the pins as synchronous pins.
Hi, Let me add few more comments on your topics,The alternative way other then adding in script file is by setting the same in CTSMode "setCTSMode -setDPinAsSync " before loading ctstch script file. Then this is global for all the other CTS trees.Its allways adviceble to set soft rule for Preferred layers like avalable top metals (M5 , M4 ) in setCTSMode command .like ( setCTSMode -topPreferredLayer M4 -bottomPreferredLayer M3 ) .BTW how was your correlation of skew and delay between clk- route only and post route phase.Regards,Mohan
