Bundle Properties Dialog Box (Design Partition Planner)
You open this dialog box by right-clicking a connection bundle in the Design Partition Planner and then clicking Bundle Properties.
Allows you to view a list of the connections represented by a selected connection bundle, and see properties of those connections.
Important: The Bundle Properties dialog box may list connections that are not currently part of the selected bundle. This occurs if the settings on the Connection Counting tab of the Bundle Configuration dialog box are set to exclude certain connection types. Connections that are currently excluded from the bundle have the value No in the Included in bundle column.
The following information is provided for each connection:
- Source Node—Indicates the name of the source node for the connection.
- Destination Node—Indicates the name of the destination node for the connection.
- Source Type—Indicates the node type of the source node.
- Destination Type—Indicates the node type of the destination node.
- Registered—Indicates which of the nodes are registered.
- Routing—Indicates whether the connection uses global or local routing resources.
- Included in Bundle—Indicates whether the listed connection is included in the bundle for purposes of connection counting. Some connections between entities may be excluded from the bundle's count, depending on the options selected on the Connection Counting tab of the Bundle Configuration dialog box.
- Slack—Indicates whether the connection's worst-case slack value meets timing requirements. The following values are possible:
- A positive slack value indicates the margin by which the connection meets timing requirements.
- A negative slack value indicates the margin by which the connection fails to meet timing requirements. Connections with negative slack are displayed in red in the Bundle Properties dialog box.
- A value of Not Available indicates one of the following situations: i) the TimeQuest Timing Analyzer is not running, ii) the connection is meeting timing by a very large margin, or iii) the connection has negative slack, but is not among the 10,000 worst failing paths.
