I have a .GDS2 file that got it from SOC Encounter and now i want to check DRC & LVS. To do this I import my .GDS2 file in cadence( CIW--> File--> Import) and after that i can see the layout of my design. Now I use calibre for DRC and LVS. But after running DRC i have some errors in addition to density errors that i cannot solve them.
I want to know it is related to difference between Cadence design Rule and SOC Encouter Design Rule?
And when i run LVS i have problem because i dont have my schematic view since i get my layout from GDS2 file( i mean i have not design my layout i got it from SOC encounter). Is there any way to run LVS without Schematic?
Could anybody help me please?
Which DRC and LVS tools are you using?
