TMC-20206: DSP Blocks with Unregistered Outputs that are the Source of Paths Failing Setup Analysis


Violations of this rule identify DSP blocks with unregistered outputs that are sources of paths that fail setup analysis. Registering DSP outputs can significantly improve DSP's μtco/cell delay.


Name Description Type Default Value Min Value Max Value
maximum_setup_slack Reports a violation for timing paths that have a setup slack below the value of this parameter. double 0.0    


Add pipeline(s) to the DSP's output path to register DSP's output. Also make sure DSP packing rules are not violated to allow successful register-packing. Review the Fitter reports 'Fixed Point DSP Register Packing Details' and 'Floating Point DSP Block Details' for more details.
