Syntax set_clock_uncertainty [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-comment <comment> ] [-disable] [-from <src_clock_name> ] [-hold] [-remove] [-setup] -to <dst_clock_name>
 
<value>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-comment <comment> Comment
-disable Option to disable assignment
-from <src_clock_name> Source clock name
-hold Option to specify hold time uncertainty
-remove Option to remove assignment
-setup Option to specify setup time uncertainty
-to <dst_clock_name> Destination clock name
<value> Amount of expected clock jitter
Description
Specifies simple or interlock clock uncertainty (or clock
jitter) used during setup and/or hold time analysis. The optional
source clock <src_clock_name> is specified for interlock
uncertainty and is not specified for simple uncertainty.

You may specify the -setup option, the -hold option, or 
neither. If neither is specified, then the command applies 
to both setup and hold.

The <value> is the expected amount of clock jitter.
The format of <value> is "<numerical value><time unit>", 
for example, "0.5ns". 

The following table displays available time units:

Assignments created or modified by using this Tcl command are 
not saved to the Quartus Prime Settings File (.qsf) unless you
explicitly call one of the following two Tcl commands:

1) export_assignments
2) project_close (unless "-dont_export_assignments" is specified)

These two Tcl commands reside in the ::quartus::project Tcl 
package. You must save assignment changes before you run 
Quartus Prime command-line executables. Note, however, that 
the Tcl commands "execute_flow" and "execute_module" (part 
of the ::quartus::flow Tcl package) automatically call 
"export_assignments" before they run command-line executables.
Example Usage
## Specify a simple setup uncertainty of .3ns
## and a simple hold uncertainty of .1ns
set_clock_uncertainty 0.3ns -to clk -setup
set_clock_uncertainty 0.1ns -to clk -hold

## Both of the following commands specify a
## simple setup and hold uncertainty of .3ns
set_clock_uncertainty 0.3ns -to clk
## or
set_clock_uncertainty 0.3ns -to clk -setup -hold

## Specify an interlock setup uncertainty of .3ns
## and an interlock hold uncertainty of .1ns
set_clock_uncertainty 0.3ns -to clk -from src_clk -setup
set_clock_uncertainty 0.1ns -to clk -from src_clk -hold
Return Value Code Name Code String Return
TCL_OK 0 INFO: Operation successful
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Illegal value: <string> -- Specify a positive time value.
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: You must open a project before you can use this command.
