Document Table of Contents Guideline: Optimize Source Code

If your design does not fit because of routing problems and the methods described in the preceding sections do not sufficiently improve the routability of the design, you can modify the design at the source to achieve the desired results.

You can often improve results significantly by making design-specific changes to your source code, such as duplicating logic or changing the connections between blocks that require significant routing resources.

You can use the Design Assistant to help you identify areas in the design that can benefit from optimization. For example, the following Design Assistant rules identify registers in the design with high tension span, for which register duplication simplifies place and route.

You can also view the Global Router Wire Utilization Map report to identify instances and nets that utilize many global wire resources.
