Maximum Fan-Out logic option

Directs the Compiler to control the number of destinations the specified node feeds so the fan-out count does not exceed the value specified as the maximum number of fan-out allowed from the node.

This option is useful for reducing the load of critical signals, which improves performance.

This option must be assigned to either a register or a logic cell buffer or it is ignored.
