Generated clocks are a normal part of a design. However, if a generated clock is derived from a master clock that is not part of the same clock tree, this can cause a serious problem. The timing engine cannot properly calculate the generated clock tree delay. This results in erroneous slack computation. In the worst case situation, the design meets timing according to the reports but does not work in hardware.
