power_opt_design Syntax

power_opt_design [-quiet] [-verbose]

If you do not want to analyze and optimize the entire design, configure the optimizer with set_power_opt. This lets you specify the appropriate cell types or hierarchy to include or exclude in the optimization. You can also use set_power_opt to specify the specific Block RAM cells for optimization in opt_design.

The syntax for set_power_opt is:

set_power_opt [-include_cells <args>] [-exclude_cells <args>] [-clocks <args>] [-cell_types <args>] [-quiet] [-verbose]
Note: Block RAM power optimization is skipped if it is run using opt_design.
