A WIRE is a device object used for routing connections, or NETs, on the AMD part. A WIRE is a strip of interconnect metal inside a single tile. Wires connect between PIPs, tie-offs, and SITE_PINs.

Tip: The WIRE object should not be confused with the wire entity in the Verilog files of a design. Those wires are related to NETs in the design rather than the routing resources of the device which are defined by the WIRE object.
Figure 1. WIRE Objects

Related Objects

As seen in the above figure, WIRE objects are related to TILEs, NODEs, PIPs, or NETs. You can query WIREs using a form of the following Tcl command:

get_wires -of [get_tiles INT_R_X7Y47]

You can also query the TILEs that WIREs are located in; or the NODEs and PIPs associated with specific WIREs:

get_nodes -of_objects [get_wires INT_R_X7Y47/NW6BEG1]


The properties on a WIRE object can be reported with a command such as the following:

report_property -all [lindex [get_wires -of [get_nodes INT_R_X7Y47/NW6BEG1]] 0]
Tip: Due to the number of WIREs on a device, using the get_wires Tcl command without -of_objects or -filters to narrow the results is not recommended.

The properties include the following, with example values:
