Is there any option to import standard cell gds in encounter? I tried to include the standard cell gds in .conf file as follows.
set rda_Input(ui_gds_file) "/export/projects/pnr_calibration/inputs/tcbn40lpbwp.gds"
But it shows error like,
Loading GDS File ./inputs/tcbn40lpbwp.gds**ERROR: (ENCSYT-16029): Failed to load gds file ./inputs/tcbn40lpbwp.gds.
If anybody knows how to resolve this problem, kindly reply me. Thanks in advance.
To create a GDS containing the design implemented in Encounter and layout of the standard cells you must either:
1. run streamOut with the -merge option and specify the GDS files for the standard cells. This will merge the top level GDS from Encounter with the GDS of the standard cells which can then take to your LVS tool.
2. OR using Virtuoso open the top level and re-master the standard cells to point to the layout instead of the Abstract view then export GDS. Re-mastering cannot be done in Encounter.
