When I do Assura LVS on the layout I got from P&R Encounter, the "unbound pins" error appears in the report. As the attached picture shows, the net marked as green color in both schematic and layout looks matching well. But it seems LVS cannot specify the pin ports from the instance of the standard cell layout? Can I ignore this error and trust that schematic and layout actually match? Thanks in advance.
Hi bjbitI think it is better to troubleshoot the error so that you can get lvs match. The error looks strange. Assura seems to be reporting. You should check the sdb and ldb netlists in the run directory to see why Assura is reporting pin errors.terminal>vldbToCdl design.sdb > design.sdb.asciiThe above cmd will convert the binary netlist to ascii format.Best regardsQuek
In reply to Quek:
Check if your layout pins are in the correct formatto get properly recognized by your Assura LVS.If you exchange the data from Encounter to Virtuoso in GDSIIformat your pins are most likely only defined as labels over the interconnects. This may work for a LVS run on GSDII layout basis,but probably not for a LVS on the Virtuoso layout database.If this is the case you can try the utility ‘Create Pins From Labels’,to get the pins in the proper form.From the layout window ‘Tools -> Create Pins From Labels’.Bernd
