14.x Timing - "Warning:Timing:3391 - Timing constraint does not specify a data valid duration..."

Description

The following warning occurs during the Post-PAR static timing analysis:

"WARNING:Timing:3391 - Timing constraint< OFFSET IN constraint>does not specify a data valid duration and will not be hold checked. To enable hold checking on this offset constraint please specify a data valid duration using the VALID < duration > option."

What does this mean?

Solution

The Timing Analyzer can perform setup and hold checks for OFFSET IN constraint. However, the hold checkis performed only when a VALID value is specified in the OFFSET IN constraint.

For example:

OFFSET = IN 3 ns BEFORE "clk_in";

NET "wren"OFFSET = IN 3 ns BEFORE "clk_in";

TIMEGRP "wr_grp"OFFSET = IN 3 ns BEFORE "clk_in";

If the VALID value is not specified in the OFFSET IN constraint, the hold check will not be performed and a fast path setup calculation (at the slow corner)is performed instead; see (Xilinx Answer 42701)for more information.

To remove this warning, add VALID value in the OFFSET IN constraint.
