IO Interface Analysis: Constraints for IO pins on block level

We all know that all the input and output pins of a block must be constrained in order to enable the PnR tool to optimize those interface paths. How to constrain an input or output pin will be discussed in this article. We will also discuss what are the actual meanings of these constraints and … Read more

Inputs for Physical Design | Physical Design input files

In this article, we will discuss what are the inputs required to begin the physical design. In the previous article, we discussed the physical design flow and sanity checks before the floorplan. Inputs required for physical design can be categorised broadly into two types. Some inputs are mandatory in all the cases but some are … Read more
