18.104.22.168. Locate Critical Chains
The Retiming Limit Details report shows the design paths that limit further register retiming. Right-click any path to locate the path in the Technology Map Viewer - Post-fitting view. This viewer displays a schematic representation of the complete design after place, route, and register retiming. To view the retimed netlist in the Technology Map Viewer, follow these steps:
- To open the Retiming Limit Details report, click the Report icon next to the Retime stage in the Compilation Dashboard.
- Right-click any path in the Retiming Limit Details report and click Locate Critical Chain in Technology Map Viewer. The netlist displays as a schematic in the Technology Map Viewer.
Figure 107. Technology Map ViewerFigure 108. Post-Fit Viewer After RetimingIn the post-fit viewer, bypassed ALM registers are gray. Hyper-Registers are pink with the word "HYPER" below them. Used ALMs are pink without the word "HYPER" below them
