Recently, I am doing timing check. I want to do both setup and hold check at MIN MAX corners, which means to 2 checks at MAX corner, and 2 checks at MIN corner. Following is what Encounter UG said:
1. setTimingLibrary -max MAX -min MAX
2. setOpCond worst -lib MAX
3. (Optional) setTimingDerate -max, setTimingDerate -min
4. Then Encounter automatically 'setAnalysisMode -single'
Then I found 1 problem, how about the defineRCCorner? Cell delay will use MAX corner to do setup & hold check according to the steps, how about wire delay? So I use 'defineRCCorner -late worst -early worst' to make sure that setup & hold check both use worst RC.
Am I right? Is there anything else that I should pay attention to?
