    Using RTL compiler PLE with DEF flow Reply

    I would like to adapt DEF flow with RTL compiler PLE.

     

    Is there any user guide or manual I can reference with?

     

    And should I get a detailed DEF from backend or I can just take a rough DEF (only information about memory, hard macro, and some high level hierarchical design)?

     

    thanks!

     By the way, I only have RC200.Do I need other feature to run DEF flow?

    Hi Tompy,

    I am not sure what you mean by the DEF flow. If, by that, you mean a flow that reads a DEF file, then reading a DEF does not require anything beyond RC200. However, other licenses may be required if you want to enable physical features such as congestion mitigation, etc.

    As per the DEF, indeed a floorplan is what is expected and recommended and not a detailed floorplan. If you have a final floorplan, all cells are fixed and hence there would not be much for the synthesis tool to do

    Please review user guide
