14.x Timing - My Minimum Period does not match the worst path (the first path listed)


The timing analysis reports that the minimum period is a given value, but the first path (worst path) value does not match this value.


The design has a two-phase condition on the clock, so the design is using both edges of the clock. In this condition, the path corresponding to the longest minimum period will not be the first one listed; this happens when the slack for the two-phase path with respect to the scaled period is the same as a non two-phase path with respect to the original period. When this occurs, the order of the two paths is indeterminate, and the two-phase path appears later in the report.
