can anybody please tell me about the complete encounter flow in cadence?
thanks in advance...
there are two kinds of flow :
1. Flat flow - this flow u dnt find hard macros, so no need of partioning. The design is realised by using only standard cells.
2. Hierarchical flow - this flow includes macros, making partioning necessery. The design realisation includes Standard cell as well as macros.
Flat flow: this includes the fallowing steps,
1. intial step -init 2. Placement step 3. Prects step 4. CTS step 5.Post CTS 6. post CTS_hold 7. Route 8.Post Route 9. Post Route_hold 10. post Route_di_hold 11.post Route_si 12. Sign-off.
Hierarchical flow: this includes all the above steps along with partion before initial step & assemble after sign-off.
You can find more information in the help option available in the tool

thanks for the response.....
i Searched in Cadence tool help but did not get related to cadence encounter flow.. can you tell me anyother link or site through which i can get to know about encounter flow?
In reply to shakun:
please specify the flow which you are intrested in or you are using.
I am interested in Hierarical flow .please let me know the link or site where i get that.
thanks a lot
Hee are some resources to start with:
Partitioning Chapter of the User Guide:
EDI Tutorial - Workshop 2 demonstrates basics of the hierarchical flow:
Foundation Flows - Chapter 8 describes the Hierarchical Flow:
Hope this helps,

thanks for the response sir.but i am unable to open the link even after entering the host id of the system.
can u please tell me about the post layout simulation of the design in cadence tool?I did not get the steps to do that.I have done with DRC and LVS of the circuit.
