Timing closure is a critical phase of your design cycle. The speed of closing timing can determine the success or failure of a product.
Plan for timing closure early, rather than trying to meet the timing requirements with an ad-hoc debugging effort at the end of the design cycle. By following the guidelines of this application note, you can close timing efficiently.
Refer to the following resources for more information on design planning, recommendations, and optimization for rapid design timing closure:
