SmartGuide verification

Hi All


I've recently used SmartGuide to modify Place&Route implementation after a minor code change. Is there any way I can verify that the new P&R results have changed ONLY in the area I expect, and have left the rest of the design untouched? I can't see a way to write out a file that contains the cell location details to do a comparison between the before and after P&R.

Re: SmartGuide verification

i'm afraid  there is no such a direct way.

we used FPGA editor or floorplaner to show the difference in the Demo

Re: SmartGuide verification

When smartguide is turned on, the tool will generate a guide report file (.grf) with what have been changed/reimplemented. An example is shown below:

  SmartGuide Results
  This section describes the guide results after invoking the Router. This
  report accurately reflects the differences between the input design
  and the guide design.

  Number of Components in the input design    |      5
    Number of guided Components               |      4 out of      5  80.0%
    Number of re-implemented Components       |      1 out of      5  20.0%
    Number of new/changed Components          |      0 out of      5   0.0%
  Number of Nets in the input design          |      4
    Number of guided Nets                     |      1 out of      4  25.0%
    Number of partially guided Nets           |      1 out of      4  25.0%
    Number of re-routed Nets                  |      1 out of      4  25.0%
    Number of new/changed Nets                |      1 out of      4  25.0%

The following Components were re-implemented.
 d_i : PAD135.

The following Components are new/changed.

The following Nets were re-routed.

The following Nets are new/changed.
