Hi all.I know there is an option to specify using the GUI the location of the design's input and output ports in First Encounter.However, this can be a very tedious job to do each time I want to P&R the design after minor changes in the RTL.Is there a way to import some kind of file with those definitions ? I didn't find such option.I thought of writing a script that will do the location specifying automatically using First Encounter's command for this option but for some reason, the command doesn't appear in the command log - can you direct me to the proper command for specifying the location of ports?Help would be very much appreciated,Adi.
if you check out the doc soceUG.pdf under Data Preparation, it talked about how to create the I/O spec file (using Design-> Save->IO) after you edited it the first time in Encounter. You can hand edit it later and re-load it back using "loadIoFile".li siang
Hi Adj,I use the file "pad.io" to specify my pads or pins. Please see the user guide for the format of this file.Sometime, I have to use DEF format (I write a simple awk script to generate the DEF file). I have to use DEF if I have two pins connect to the same net (e.g. a feed-through or to ease top-level routing). It seem that pad.io does not support this. Anyone know how to do this with pad.io? I will reduce some pain for me to craft the DEF. Thanks.Regards,Eng Han
