I'm facing issue when dealing with cdb2oa.
I can't retain my cdf callback after converting my layout from cdb to oa database;resulted PcellEvailFail message show up...
Below is one of the ERROR message.
ERROR (CDBOA-603): Cellview <path>/<name> contains <object type>, <object id>. This object type is not supported by OpenAccess and will not be translated. Generated 3 times. The CDBA database supports many objects and constructs that have no OpenAccess equivalent. These objects and constructs are not translated. ?? newline Examples: ERROR (CDBOA-603) : Cellview AN2/layout.cdb contains a complex mosaic instance, IN3_1. This object type is not supported by OpenAccess and will not be translated. Here: object_type = a complex mosaic instance object_id = IN3_1 ERROR (CDBOA-603): Cellview AN2/layout.cdb contains an instance on a net, IN23 on Net32. This object type is not supported by OpenAccess and will not be translated. Here: object_type = an instance on a net object_id = IN23 on Net32
I'm currently using IC 6.15.
What can i do to retain the cdf callback?
In reply to Peter123:
Those messages don't appear to be anything to do with CDF Callbacks, and lack of CDF Callbacks should not cause pcellEvalFail messages.
It's saying you have complex mosaics (presumably created using the structure compiler, which was end-of-lifed some time ago).
Anyway, best thing is to log a service request with customer support.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
While converting main tech lib(cdb format) to oa format using command, I am getting the following errors and warnings for almost all the pcells. The error is as follows:
ERROR (CDBOA-612): Cell ../../../../../../bicmos5hpe/V188.8.131.52/bicmos5h has an illegal CDBA name. Its contents will be copied to the OpenAccess version of the library but will not be translated.WARNING (CDBOA-406): Directory ../../../../../../bicmos5hpe/V184.108.40.206/bicmos5h is in a cellview. The directory and its contents will be copied to the destination database but will not be translated.
So in any layout, which contains pcells from techlib, "pcellEvailFailed" message is coming. Please help me how to overcome this error.
Thanks in Advance
In reply to Prasanna7:
Instead of tagging on to this very old topic, please start a new topic.
What is the name of the llibrary you are converting? It looks like there is additional directories in the structure which would cause it to ignore the contents.
cdb2oa expects: libDirectory/cellDirectory/viewDirectory/dataFile
