I have a very basic question regarding the whole synthesis process.
We say that before mapping the whole process goes technology independent (library), only during mapping it is technology dependent.
My question is then why do we have to source the libraries before the elaboration step which comes before the mapping stage.
We can source it after the elaboration step also.
Thanks for the reply, so a more basic question on that which i would like to raise is that leave behind the macros and other cells which are to be instatntiated, let us take an example of the actual logic which needs to be synthesized.
In that case also do we still require the libraries before the elaboration step. If still the answer is yes, Can you please elaborate the side effects thing which you have mentioned in your answer ?
