The timing path report provides the information needed to understand what causes a timing violation. The following sections describe the Timing Path Report.

The Timing Path Summary displays the important information from the timing path details. You can review it to find out about the cause of a violation without having to analyze the details of the timing path. It includes slack, path requirement, datapath delay, cell delay, route delay, clock skew, and clock uncertainty. It does not provide any information about cell placement.

For more information about the terminology used for timing constraints and timing analysis, as well as learn how slack and path requirement are determined, see Timing Analysis Key Concepts.
