Using Encounter 13.2Defined .capTbl, .tch, .lef files, defined timing and other settings in viewdefinition. Got the design placed and routed. Once I start checking the design with verifyGeometry I see hundreds of thousands errors of different type like:
ShortUsing the following commands did not help:setOptMode -fixDRC trueoptDesign -preCTSThen I used these commands:verifyTracksgenerateTracks globalDetailRouteNow the amount of errors after verifyGeometry check reduced to:
18 MinArea errors
171152 No-Grid errors
239 Spacing errorsSo I see some improvement but I cannot get it any better yet. Those >170k MinArea errors and 239 Spacing errors tell me that something is wrong maybe with the flow or with the way how the tool interprets constraints. But I am not sure what exactly could be wrong.The LEF files I am using are from the manufacturer and as they say were tested on many designs (the IBM 7RF Kit). So, I am assuming something is wrong on my side or in the way how I configure something.Anyone has some ideas where else would be worth looking at?
