PlanAhead - Why is the synthesized netlist required when I import ISE Place & Route Results to create a PlanAhead project

Description

When I create a PlanAhead project and select "Import ISE Place & Route Results", it requires not only the NCD/XDL and TWX files but also the synthesized netlist files. Why is the netlist required when I importISE Place & Route Results?

Solution

The PlanAhead Tool is designed to work based on the synthesized netlist. The netlist is required if you want to analyze the placement/timing and floorplan the design. Furthermore, the netlist isindispensable if you want to run Implementation in the PlanAhead tool.
