Design Compiler - Error reported when using TCL mode in Design Compiler: "Unknown option '-strip' (CMD-010)"


Keywords: design, compiler, TCL, Xilinx, DesignWare

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I compile a design that instantiates DesignWare components using Synopsys Design Compiler in TCL mode, the compiler exits and reports the following error:

"ERROR: unknown option '-strip' (CMD-010)
ERROR: unknown option '-strip' (CMD-010) "


This error occurs because the Xilinx DesignWare components contain embedded Design Compiler commands. Using Design Compiler in TCL mode is incompatible with the native Design Compiler commands. When the Xilinx DesignWare components are instantiated, Design Compiler calls up the source code for the Xilinx DesignWare components. If a TCL environment is used, Design Compiler issues this error message.

To work around this issue, do not instantiate the DesignWare components or do not use TCL mode.
