Please help! I would like to use Encounter to configure the IO pad, so I include the IO .lef and .lib file into the .conf file as usual with the command:set rda_input(ui_iolib) "io.lib"set rda_input(ui_leffile) "io.lef"but then, I got this error >> lef file can not work with cdump files without a tech file. anyone seen this kind of error before? thanks!sincerely, chhay
Hi Chay ,I think you might not have given technology lef file before io.lef .So, load the technology lef file first and then io.lef.regards,KVB
Thanks KVB. I did include the "tech.lef" before the "io.lef". but the error is still there. It is weird. that it complains about: >> lef file can not work with cdump files without a tech file. only when i have the command: set rda_input(ui_iolib) "io.lib" in the .conf file. so i think there's nothing wrong with the lef file but the io.lib. I look into the "io.lib" file, everything seems normal and similar to the regular std_cell.lib. please help. thank you very much. chhay
FYI: For lef file, I usually put them into one line in my conf file like: set rda_Input(ui_leffile) "tech.lef stdcell.lef macroList.lef". It works fine. The tech.lef should have layers, vias, via gen rules, site/core defined inside it. Sometimes, if the header of macro/stdcell lef file conflict with the corresponding information in tech.lef, it may fail, then, I usualy remove all the header portion of it. Also, check the consistance between your tech lef and your io.lef file, such as if the layer names used are same. For .lib files, I also integrate them into "set rda_Input(ui_timelib,min/max)...".Tongju
