Design Complier and RTL Complier are two different tools used for RTL synthesis. They have different command syntax. DC provides scan compression while RC don't. DC is difficult to use compared to RC. I think if you are good with DC, you will easily pick-up RC.
It should not be much of a problem I guess...as the basic concepts/optimization techniques will be similar barring some differences. Basically finding out the command for what you intend to do might be a little difficult in the beginning. Give anywhere between 2-3 weeks for getting accustomed to a new tool if you have already worked on similar tool. From there on the more you work on it the more confident you become.
Right, These tools are mainly used for RTL synthesis but they also support some DFT features like scan insertion. Design complier provides scan compression feature also. DFT complier is a DFT specialist tool.
Migrating from DC to RC will take 1 week for basic tool understand and database exploration. 1 more week to understand more detail commands.. total 2 weeks enough for complete understanding of RC.
