TMC-20220: RAM Blocks with Restricted Fmax below Required Fmax


Violations of this rule identify RAM Blocks with restricted Fmax that prevents the circuit from meeting the required Fmax performance. This violation can occur when the required Fmax exceeds a RAM block's Fmax limit.


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    


Relax the clock constraint(s) of the RAM block to meet the block specification. Refer to: Also refer to Memory in the Intel Hyperflex Architecture High-Performance Design Handbook for various optimization techniques for hard memory blocks in Intel Hyperflex architecture FPGAs.
