 Tcl Package and Version Belongs to ::quartus::sta Syntax report_clock_fmax_summary [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-append] [-file ] [-panel_name ] [-split_by_corner] [-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 Sends the results to an ASCII or HTML file. Depending on the extension -panel_name Sends the results to the panel and specifies the name of the new panel -split_by_corner When set, running this command with the -panel option will create a folder containing versions of this report for selected multiple operating conditions. This option has no effect when used with the -stdout or -file options. -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. Description Reports potential fmax for every clock in the design, regardless of the user-specified clock periods. Fmax is only computed for paths where the source and destination registers or ports are driven by the same clock. Paths of different clocks, including generated clocks, are ignored. For paths between a clock and its inversion, fmax is computed as if the rising and falling edges of the clock are scaled along with fmax, such that the duty cycle (in terms of a percentage) is maintained. Restricted fmax considers hold timing in addition to setup timing, as well as minimum pulse and minimum period restrictions. Similar to unrestricted fmax, the restricted fmax is computed as if the rising and falling edges of the clock are scaled along with fmax, such that the duty cycle (in terms of a percentage) is maintained. The "Note" column reports which analyses restricted fmax. Refer to hold timing reports (e.g., report_timing with the -hold option) or minimum pulse width reports generated by the report_min_pulse_width command for details of specific paths, registers, or ports.
