Can any one calify me the following concept:
If i had a GDS file with me without having design data(i.e. design.enc format),is ti possible to import the design in encounter?
If so ,explain the process with an example.
Hi KVB,This is not possible. You need to start with a netlist. You might be able to do some sort of workaround using OA, but I don't know your exact situation (and I'm not an OA expert either).- Kari
Say you have a gds file and you have a netlist generated from a program such as micromagic max? I want to import those files into encounter do you have any suggestions?
Again, I'm no expert with the OA stuff, so there may be something you can do there if you can get the design into virtuoso. But otherwise, you need LEF files and .lib files at a minimum along with the netlist.
