SmartXplorer - How can I add a specific MAP option to existing strategies

Description

I am running SmartXplorer with built-in strategies. I want to add a specific option (e.g. map -detail) to all existing strategies so that a detailed MAP report will be generated for each run. How can this be done?

Solution

To achieve this in the current release the user must create a customer strategy file, specifying the extra option in defined strategies.

An example of a custom strategy file is like this.

{
"virtex6":
(
{"name": "My_Strat_1",
"map": " -ol high -detail -pr b -t 7 -w ",
"par": " -ol high -xe n "},
{"name": "My_Strat_2",
"map": " -ol high -detail -global_opt speed -register_duplication on -w",
"par": " -ol high "},
),
}


Note: if you use -mo "-detail" in SmartXplorer command line,it overrides all MAP options during the SmartXplorer run and replaces them with -detail alone. The -mo switch is intended to identify the options to be used with variability passes where the same strategy is used fr each pass. See Command Line Tools User Guide for more SmartXplorer options.
