    Assura 4.1 Error Report and Probing Reply

    Hi all,

    Up to now I have used Assura 3.0/3.1 for LVS and I was used to use the "Error Report" for probing problematic

    nets and devices. In fact this worked much better for me than the LVS Debug Enviroment. Now I have my first

    contact with Assura 4.1 and as it seems there is not probing capability in the "Error Report"-Window anymore 

    This means that I have to deal with this <censored> LVS Debug Enviroment now, and I still hate it

     

    Is there any possibily to get my beloved old "Error Report" probing flow back ?

     

    Best Regards

     

    Andi

    Hi Andi

    Would you please try the latest version of Assura (ver 41USR1_HF14)? I just tested it and confirmed that hyperlinks in the error report is working.

    Best regards

     Hi Quek

     

    Brilliant, you saved my day ;)

    Works flawlessly with HF18, HF8 and plain USR1

    Seems that I, once again, picked the wrong version (HF10) first ;)

     

    Thanks a lot

     

    Best Regards

    Hi Andi

    That's great! Thank you for using Assura. You might also be interested to know that Cadence now has a more powerful verification tool named "PVS". : )

     Hi Quek

     

    You know what they say, you can teach new tricks to an old dog. I'm used to Assura/Vampire

    for more than 10 years and I currently have some pressure for the acutal project. But since

    we have PVS here as wellI might give it a try as soon as I'm finished

     

    Thanks again

     

    Best Regards

     

    Andi

    Hi Andi

    No problem, you can give it a try when you are free. For your information, we have the following exciting features in the coming PVS10.1 which will be released this month:

    a. HyperDebuger: Converts a layout into a hierarchical schematic for easier LVS debugging

    b. fastXor: Performs xor on 2 databases with an automatically generated rules file. Unlike Assura which requires drc rules file for the generation of an xor rules file, fastXor will not require any rules input. It will automatically generate the required rules file based on the input databases.

    c. Viewing of drc errors in IC61 Annotation Browser

    d. Strong multi-machine/multi-cpu distribution capabilities


    Best regards
