Batch Creation of Pin Pairs in CR-8000

Tech Tip: Batch Creation of Pin Pairs in CR-8000


Creating pin pairs in the Constraint Browser is fine for one or two nets at a time, but if you want to create pin pairs for a whole design, I recommend using an easy, single-step macro.

Pin pairs of nets other than power/ground nets can be created using a macro command. Pin pairs are needed in the Constraint Browser to obtain values such as “measured route length” and “Manhattan ratio.”

From the macro command, type the following: (cnew allsignalnetpinpairs)
