14.x Timing Analyzer/Constraint - How do I add a PERIOD constraint to the N-side of my differential pair?

Description

I want to use the N-side of a differential clock to drive logic in my design. I add a NET PERIOD constraint to the net name, but this does not work.

How do I constrain this net using a PERIOD constraint?

Solution

If you add a NET PERIOD on a DIFF_CLK in the software, the constraintis lost. However, if you place a TNM_NET PERIOD on the DIFF clock input, the PERIODis placed on the N- and the P-sides of the clock.

For more details on timing constraints, please see the Timing Constraints User Guide(UG612).
