I have some schematics in the OA version 6.1 and I need to read them in the earlier Cadence version of 5.1.41. Is there a way to do this? Copying them and opening them didn't work as the way schematics are saved in 6.1 is different. Is there a script to do the conversion?
IC61x does open the existing design which has a cds.lib file so yes, what you say is true. However, the -cdslibpath option doesn't support cds.lib. There may be some env variable that can be changed to disable this. I tried creating my own lib.defs file and it seems to get to the next step. I need to define tech libraries referenced by the design in the lib.defs file as well. The syntax for the lib.defs file seems to be the same as that of cds.lib. Please let me know if its otherwise.
Thanks for your help.
