Clock frequency constraints are required for the s_axi_cpu_aclk, s_axis_video_aclk, s_axis_audio_aclk, m_hdr_axi_clk, link_clk, frl_clk, and video_clk.

create_clock -name s_axi_cpu_aclk -period 10.0 [get_ports s_axi_cpu_aclk]
create_clock -name s_axis_audio_aclk -period 10.0 [get_ports s_axis_audio_aclk]
create_clock -name video_clk -period 2.5 [get_ports video_clk]
create_clock -name s_axis_video_aclk -period 2.5 [get_ports s_axis_video_aclk]
create_clock -name link_clk -period 3.333 [get_ports link_clk]
create_clock -name frl_clk -period 2.222 [get_ports frl_clk]
create_clock -name m_hdr_axi_clk-period 3.333 [get_ports m_hdr_axi_clk]
Note: For more details on HDMI™ 2.1 clocks, see Table 1.

When using this subsystem in the Vivado Design Suite flow with HDMI PHY Controller /HDMI GT Subsystem modules, link_clk and video_clk are generated from the HDMI PHY Controller /HDMI GT Subsystem. Therefore, the clock constraints are set to the HDMI PHY Controller /HDMI GT Subsystem constraints instead of these generated clocks. See Clocking in the HDMI PHY Controller LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG333) / HDMI GT Controller LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG334) for more information.

The frl_clk, s_axi_cpu_aclk, s_axis_video_aclk, s_axis_audio_aclk, and m_hdr_axi_clk constraints are generated at system level, for example by using a clock wizard.
