SPYGLASS is a tool from Atrenta. U can search there website for demo also.

This tool is differebt from other code analysis tools.
It synthesizes the design then u can analyse for.

1. Cross Clock domain,DFT check, Synthesis check, Coding style and many more.

infact a better tool

Yes. Spyglass is a tools for the code level checking. It looks like a lint tools. But I heard the new version spyglass can estimate the pr congestion. It is based on simple synthesis. It is a good tool to integrate all coding problem. But personally, I think all other tools such as DC and back end pnr tools can give you enough info to modify your code, if you take the warning seriously.

So, is it must or nice to have?
Is this a RTL Code Hand-Off Sign-Off tool?

With the complexity of design and agressive schedules any issue found in Last stage is overhead.
If you find some issue at RTL level it is good.

So it is "MUST".

It is very costly for a single user. Generally corporates have a deal so it comes less for them.

Please take a look at this post: https://www.edaboard.com/threads/269890/
As you could see there, input/output -min delays have negative values.
Could you please check whether the constraints are correct there?
Just click on the attached image there and it will be zoomed in.
Thank you!

It seems too costly. I run spyglass from time to time for linting. But I dont think it is worthy so much.
