Hello, I encountered a LVS problem a week ago. I searched this forum before I post but I think my LVS problem is unique. Here is a section of the error log
Begin netlist: Mar 27 11:49:11 2009 view name list = ("auLvs" "extracted" "schematic") stop name list = ("auLvs") library name = "test" cell name = "inv" view name = "extracted" globals lib = "basic" Running Artist Flat Netlisting ... *Error* sh: artcpp: not found *Error* in modelPath: -Y/n/homeserver2/user2a/mcwang/cadence/LVS/layout
When I clicked on the "RUN" button for DivaLVS, the CIW windows said LVS started, but then a pop-up message said the LVS has failed. I checked the error log and posted a portion of it above I am especially confounded by this error message; I am not sure what it means *Error* sh: artcpp: not found; Can anyone please help? I'd greatly appreciate it!
artcpp should be in <ICinstDir>/tools/dfII/bin - is it there? Do you have that directory in your UNIX $PATH ?
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thank you very much Andrew. That's exactly what happened. artcpp file was in <ICinstDir>/tools/dfII/bin but I did not set the environment variable in $PATH. After I did that the problem is gone. Thanks again!!!
