Hello All, I have a design that involves two clocks (clk and sh_clk). However, after encounter synthesizes my design, it "splits" my clocks. The design consists of a kernel (Braun_Multiplier) and a wrapper for pads (Braun_Multiplier_WithPads), The input design header for the core reads:module Braun_Multiplier(A_in, B_in, clk, sh_clk, clear, mult_output, cmp_out);While the header for the core in the nelist generated by Encounter reads: module Braun_Multiplier ( A_in, B_in, clk, sh_clk, clear, mult_output, cmp_out, clk_at_Pad__L2_N1, clk_at_Pad__L2_N2, clk_at_Pad__L2_N3 ); I do not understand why the clk signal should be "split" like shown here. I am not sure whether this is correct or not. However, at the highest level of design (Braun_Multiplier_WithPads), the input design header to Enounter is:module Braun_Multiplier_WithPads(A_ChipInp, B_ChipInp, clk_ChipInp, sh_clk_ChipInp, clear_ChipInp, mult_output_ChipOutp, cmp_out_ChipOutp); and in the netlist generated by Encounter, it is:module Braun_Multiplier_WithPads ( A_ChipInp, B_ChipInp, clk_ChipInp, sh_clk_ChipInp, clear_ChipInp, mult_output_ChipOutp, cmp_out_ChipOutp );So, there seems to be consistency here.In my synthesis script for Encounter, I have these lines:setClockDomains -all \ -clk clk sh_clk\ -event R Can someone please point out to me whether this may be a problem? And if yes, what step will rectify it?I wanted to attach the entire script that I use for synthesis, but, couldn't find "attach" option :(
This is the Custom IC (Virtuoso) forum and you will probably do better by posting this in the digital forum.
