A Practical Way to Do Netlist ECO & Debug

Calculate Gated Clock Percentage

Abstract

This use case shows how to calculate register driven by gated clock percentage

GofCall Script

## Script: gated_clock_percentage.pl
## Calculate the clock gated registers percentage 
##
use strict;
read_library("libdir/hvt.lib", "libdir/rvt.lib");
read_design("-imp", "netdir/netlist.v");

our $total_reg_num = 0;
our $gated_reg_num = 0;
set_quiet(1);
my @tops = get_roots();
my $top = $tops[0];
&go_through_module($top);
my $ratio;
my $st_ratio;
if($total_reg_num){
  $ratio = $gated_reg_num / $total_reg_num;
  $ratio *= 100;
  $st_ratio = sprintf("%2.2f", $ratio);
  print "Overall, gated clock percentage $st_ratio% ($gated_reg_num / $total_reg_num)\n";
}
