18.104.22.168. Fast Forward Details Report
Click any optimization Step in the report to view the implementation details and performance calculations for that step.
Right-click any path to locate the critical chain in the Fast Forward Viewer. The Fast Forward Viewer displays a predictive representation of the complete design, after implementation of all Fast Forward recommendations.
|Step||Displays the pre-optimized Base Performance fMAX, the recommended Fast Forward optimization steps, and the Fast Forward Limit critical path that prevents further optimization.|
|Fast Forward Optimizations Analyzed||Summarizes the optimizations necessary to implement each optimization step.|
|Estimated Fmax||Specifies the potential fMAX performance if you implement all Fast Forward optimization steps.|
|Optimizations Analyzed For Fast Forward Step||Lists design recommendations hierarchically for the selected Step. Click the text to expand the report and view the clock domain, the affected module, and the bus and bits that require modification.|
|Optimizations Analyzed (Cumulative)||Accumulated list of all design changes necessary to reach the selected Step.|
|Critical Chain at Fast Forward Limit||Displays information about any path that continues to limit Hyper-Retiming even after application of all Fast Forward steps. The critical chain is any path that limits further Hyper-Retiming. Click the Fast Forward Limit step to display this field.|
|Recommendations for Critical Chain||Lists register timing path associated with the retiming limitations. Right-click any path to Locate Critical Chain in Fast Forward Viewer.|
