I am trying to make a parasitic extraction using EXT11 as required by technology (CMOS7RF da IBM). But, it creates an error with a tool that seems not to exist : vdbToRcx. The error message is the following :
vdbToRcx /home/emmanuel/cadence/IBM_invert inve -unit meters -- -V1 -H \
satfile -r /home/emmanuel/cadence/IBM_invert/inve.xcn -df2 -xgl
/home/emmanuel/cadence/IBM_invert/inve/rcx.sh: vdbToRcx: not found [No such file or directory]
ERROR (LBRCXM-609): Bad return status from RCX run. 0x7f00
I verified in /opt/cds/PVE111/tools.lnx86/extraction/bin. Really, vdbToRcx does not exist. Is it a problem of the script that is trying to use a function that does not exist. Or it is a problem of installation of PVE111 that does not included vdbToRcx ?
In reply to wighou:
BTW, the EXT streams are obsolete now. In the past there were separate streams for QRC (EXT), QuickView (KQV) and PVS (PVS), but these have been combined into a newer stream, the PVE stream. So the PVE versions are all newer than the EXT stream.
I would expect that that the vdbToRcx is only necessary if using Assura LVS together with QRC.
