Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::sta

Syntax report_rskm [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-append] [-file <name> ] [-panel_name <name> ] [-stdout]
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-append If output is sent to a file, this option appends the result to that file. Otherwise, the file will be overwritten. This option is not supported for HTML files.
-file <name> Sends the results to an ASCII or HTML file. Depending on the extension
-panel_name <name> Sends the results to the panel and specifies the name of the new panel
-stdout Send output to stdout, via messages. You only need to use this option if you have selected another output format, such as a file, and would also like to receive messages.

Reports RSKM for dedicated LVDS circuitry. In designs that use dedicated LVDS circuitry, receiver input skew margin (RSKM) is the time margin available before the LVDS receiver megafunction fails to operate. RSKM is defined as the total time margin that remains after subtracting the sampling window (SW) size and the receiver channel-to-channel skew (RCCS) from the time unit interval (TUI), as expressed in the following formula: RSKM = (TUI - SW - RCCS) /2 The time unit interval is the LVDS clock period (1/fmax). The sampling window is the period of time that the input data must be stable to ensure that the data is successfully sampled by the LVDS receiver megafunction. The sampling window size varies by device speed grade. RCCS is the difference between the fastest and slowest data output transitions, including the tco variation and clock skew. To obtain an accurate analysis of an LVDS circuit, you should assign an appropriate input delay to the LVDS receiver megafunction. RCCS is equal to the difference between maximum input delay and minimum input delay. If no input delay is set, RCCS defaults to zero.
