Is there any option like "Retain Refrence Library (No Merge)" to stream in Verilog codes into Cadence-Virtuoso using refrence library cells?
I have a large design synthesized and P&R by BuildGates and Encounter. Now I Need to import the GDSII and Verilog file into Cadence for LVS, DRC and Postlayout simulation. For GDSII, the "Retain Refrence Library (No Merge)" option uses library cells instead of making new cells in target library, which reduces disk usage. But it seems verilog-impoter does not have such an option. How to stream in Verilog to Virtuoso using refrence library cells?
In IC5141, in the Tools->Import->verilog form is a 'reference library' entry (3. from the top), that has per default the basic and sample included. Does that not work ?
In reply to Lena:
Not for this purpose. All reference libs that were used for synthesis, should be given there for creating schematic view and verilog definitions. Indeed, the importer makes a new copy of them in the target lib that comsumes a lot of time and disk space.
In reply to naderi:
to the libraries that contain Design Framework II reference cells. Typically,
these reference cells are imported as part of another design or are ASIC library
cells. If a cell exists in a reference library with the same name as the module
to import, Verilog In does not import the module. If you want to generate a
multisheet schematic, you must specify a reference library containing sheet
border and index sheet symbols (for example, the US_8ths library
provided by Cadence). The default reference libraries are sample
For incomplete designs, if the description
of a module is not provided, but a symbol for the module exists in the reference
library, it is used to create a structural view for the instantiating module(s).
For more details of symbol selection, refer to the section Using Reference Libraries to Import Incomplete Designs.
