I am running Encounter with ILM blocks.
i have succesfully created the ILM and imported them to my top level.
However, after placement step ends, and i run timeDesign, i am getting "N/A" for all values in timeDesign summary table.
the sdc file is well defined and succesfully loaded at the beggining.
only after i run "flattenIlm" and resource the sdc file, i can see values in timeDesign table.
Make sure you specify the SDCs using create_constraint_mode/update_constraint_mode -ilm_sdc_files. The SDCs specified with the -ilm_sdc_files option are used when the SDCs are flattened. The -sdc_files is used when the blocks are represented with .libs instead of ILMs.
In reply to wally1:
Hi, thanks for your answer.
A few more questions:
I should define the constraint mode even if i dont work with mcmm?
the sdc for ilms is the sdc created with the ilm?
BTW. what should i define in order to work with ILM and non MCMM design?
In reply to ErezBS:
To specify the ILM SDCs in a non-MMMC flow list them in the config file with the variable "set rda_Input(ui_timingcon_file,full)". The file specified is used when the ILMs are flattened. The related variable "set rda_Input(ui_timingcon_file)" is used when the blocks are represented with .libs.
