3.6.1. Recommended Initial SDC Constraints

Include the following basic SDC constraints in your initial .sdc file.
The following example shows application of the recommended initial SDC constraints for a simple dual-clock design:
create_clock -period 20.00 -name adc_clk [get_ports adc_clk]
create_clock -period 8.00 -name sys_clk [get_ports sys_clk]


Note: Only Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX devices support the Derive PLL Clocks (derive_pll_clocks) constraint. For all other supported devices, the Timing Analyzer automatically derives PLL clocks from constraints bound to the related IP.
