Final flow looking better already: Cadence rc
After a lot of checking about it seems SoC Encounter comes with its own RTL compiler which is a lot more modern than our installed version of PKS. It also looks like a lot of the functionality of PKS was pushed into encounter which is the sensible place for it to be. When laying out a modern SoC with IP blocks, analogue and RTL it makes sense to do the floorplanning, clock tree balancing and reordering all in one tool.
