I want to put on the table one problem which we face somehow regularly. Each time when we receive the leadframes for the packages which our custmers want to use they are in PDF format, but we need them in GDS in order to create the bonding diagram which is sent to the assembly house. So after that we are using multiple tools and stunts in order to do the convertion, but the approach is not professional at all.
My question is there way ( cadence tool or skill script ) to convert PDF to some cadence readable format, in order to be opend as a lyout view?
That's way beyond what the code was intended for. That's about 35 million rectangles if you convert every pixel - then these rectangles will get merged - which is also a lot of work. The code could potentially be smarter about merging adjacent rectangles, but it doesn't do that.
The code was intended to import small logos - nothing more than that.
