Syntax enable_ccpp_removal [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-depth <depth> ] [-off] [-on]
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-depth <depth> maximum clock tree depth for cppp removal
-off Disable this setting.
-on Enable this setting.

Enables (or disables) common clock path pessimism (CCPP) removal during slack computation. CCPP removal can improve timing results by removing min/max delay differences from common portions of clock paths. Enabling CCPP removal increases the time required to perform timing analysis. When specified, the optional depth parameter limits the clock tree depth used for CCPP removal. This is generally not applicable to FPGA compilations where the clock tree is fixed, but for large designs with potentially deep synthesized clock trees this can reduce outlier run time. When not specified, or when specified with a value of 0, the complete clock tree is used for CCPP removal (i.e. full clock-tree depth).

Example Usage
project_open top

# Report timing without CCPP removal

# Enable CCPP removal and re-report timing.

Return Value Code Name Code String Return
TCL_OK 0 INFO: Operation successful
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Timing netlist does not exist. Use create_timing_netlist to create a timing netlist.
