    Re: Hello. is it possible to do placement and routing with rtl compiler - physical?

    No, It can't be used for placement and routing. Cadence Encounter RTL Compiler with Physical is a synthesis tool. It does physical aware synthesis that delivers real physical interconnect timing in the logic synthesis environment. For doing physical aware synthesis it call Encounter Digital Implementation System. So You can do physical aware synthesis only if you have Encounter Digital Implementation licences. Also for placement and routing you need Encounter Digital Implementation System licence.
