Document Table of Contents Data and Control Plane

Sometimes, the long path can be in the data plane, and the short path can be in the control plane. If you add registers to the data path, you change the control logic. This can be a time-consuming process. In cases where the control logic is based on the number of clock cycles in the data path, you can add registers in the data path (the long path) and modify a counter value in the control logic (the short path) to accommodate the increased number of cycles used to process the data.
