CoolRunner-II Timing - Is the tCYC of a dual edge trigger register correctly analyzed?

Description

Is the tCYC of a dual edge trigger register correctly analyzed?

Solution


The definition of the Clock to Setup (tCYC) in the CPLD timing report states:
Register to register cycle time. Includes source register tCO and destination register tSU.
NOTE: When the computed Maximum Clock Speed is limited by tCYC, it is computed assuming that all registers are rising-edge sensitive.
Therefore, when you are using a dual edge trigger register, the tCYC only takes the rising-edge into account.
