6.1i CPLD TAEngine - Timing constraints do not obey the proper FROM:TO location ranges


Keywords: 6.1i, 5.2i, 5.1i , CPLD, TAEngine, timing constraint

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
The CPLD timing analysis tool of the TAEngine does not obey the "From" portion of a FROM:TO constraint. The constraint picks up only the "To" portion and, as a result, covers many more paths than expected.


Because more paths are covered by the constraint than intended, you can work around this issue by inspecting all paths to verify the validity of each path with respect to the starting point indicated in the timing constraint.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 6.1i Service Pack 1.
