Syntax set_operating_conditions [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-force_dat] [-grade <c|i|m|e|a> ] [-model <fast|slow> ] [-speed <speed> ] [-temperature <value_in_C> ] [-voltage <value_in_mV> ]
[ <operating_conditions> ]
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-force_dat Option to force delay annotation
-grade <c|i|m|e|a> Option to specify temperature grade
-model <fast|slow> Option to specify timing model
-speed <speed> Speed grade
-temperature <value_in_C> Operating temperature
-voltage <value_in_mV> Operating voltage
<operating_conditions> Operating conditions Tcl object
Use this command to specify operating conditions different from the
initial conditions used to create the timing netlist. When a timing
model is not specified, the slow model is used.

Voltage and temperature options must be used together. These two
options are not available for all devices. The
get_available_operating_conditions command returns the list of
available operating conditions for your device.

Use the -speed option to analyze the design at a different speed grade
of the selected device.

Use the -grade option to analyze the design at a different temperature
grade. This option is provided to support what-if analysis and is not
recommended for final sign-off analysis.

By default, delay annotation is skipped if previously performed.  Use
-force_dat to rerun delay annotation.
Example Usage
#do report timing for different operating conditions
foreach_in_collection op [get_available_operating_conditions] {
	set_operating_conditions $op

#manually set operating conditions
set_operating_conditions -model fast -temperature 85 -voltage 1200

#change device speed grade and set operating conditions
set_operating_conditions -speed 3 -model slow -temperature 0 -voltage 1100
Return Value Code Name Code String Return
TCL_OK 0 INFO: Operation successful
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Cannot set operating conditions for timing netlist created from XML file. Run create_timing_netlist.
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Both the -temperature and -voltage options and their values are required.
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Values entered did not match any valid operating conditions. Available operating conditions are: <string>
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: The <string> device family does not support set_operating_conditions command.
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Timing netlist does not exist. Use create_timing_netlist to create a timing netlist.
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Illegal value: <string>. Specify an integer ranging from -999999999 to 999999999 for the option -voltage
TCL_ERROR 1 ERROR: Unsupported option: <string>.
