Individual timing assignments override project-wide requirements.

  • To avoid reporting incorrect or irrelevant timing violations, you can assign timing exceptions to nodes and paths.
  • The Timing Analyzer supports point-to-point timing constraints, wildcards to identify specific nodes when making constraints, and assignment groups to make individual constraints to groups of nodes.
