Batch Creation of Pin Pairs in CR-8000

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

Menu

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)

High Speed Design Demystified: LPDDR4 Design Explained

A trend towards low power design prevails in the electronics industry today and is not likely to change in the near future. This development is driven by many reasons but primarily by the performance and storage density demands of mobile devices, where a reduction of the power consumption is crucial to extending battery life without sacrificing the bandwidth. This comprehensive guide helps you mitigate LPDDR4 Design.
