These details include whether the Method of Synchronizer Identification was User Specified (with the Forced if Asynchronous or Forced settings for the Synchronizer Identification setting), or Automatic (with the Auto setting). The Number of Synchronization Registers in Chainreport provides information about the parameters that affect the MTBF calculation, including the Available Settling Time for the chain and the Data Toggle Rate Used in MTBF Calculation.

The following information is also included to help you locate the chain in your design:

  • Source Clock and Asynchronous Source node of the signal.
  • Synchronization Clockin the destination clock domain.
  • Node names of the Synchronization Registers in the chain.
