Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::sdc_ext 1.0

Syntax set_scc_mode [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-size <size> ] [-use_heuristic]
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-size <size> Maximum SCC loop size
-use_heuristic Always use heuristic for SCC processing
Allows you to set maximum Strongly Connected
Components (SCC) loop size or force TimeQuest Timing
Analyzer to always estimate delays through SCCs.

When TimeQuest Timing Analyzer encounters a loop of
size greater than the specified maximum SCC loop size,
it uses a heuristic which only estimates delays
through the loop.

If the loop is smaller than the maximum SCC loop size,
a full processing of loops is performed unless the
-use_heuristic option is used.

Avoid using the set_scc_mode command if your design
targets a HardCopy series device or if you plan to
migrate your design to a HardCopy series device.
Example Usage
# Make TimeQuest Timing Analyzer use normal processing for all loops
# the size of which is less than or equal to 100. For loops of size
# greater than 100, a runtime-saving heuristic will be used
set_scc_mode -size 100

# Force TimeQuest Timing Analyzer to use heuristic for all SCCs
# disregarding their size
set_scc_mode -use_heuristic
