    cdb2oa (PcellEvalFail) Reply

    Hi Masters,

    I'm facing issue when dealing with cdb2oa.

    I can't retain my cdf callback after converting my layout from cdb to oa database;resulted PcellEvailFail message show up...

    Below is one of the ERROR message.

    ERROR   (CDBOA-603): Cellview <path>/<name> contains <object type>, <object id>.
                         This object type is not supported by OpenAccess and will
                         not be translated.

                          Generated 3 times. The CDBA database supports many objects
                         and constructs that have no OpenAccess equivalent. These
                         objects and constructs are not translated. ?? newline
                          Examples:
                          ERROR (CDBOA-603) : Cellview AN2/layout.cdb contains a
                         complex mosaic instance, IN3_1. This object type is not
                         supported by OpenAccess and will not be translated.
                          Here:
                          object_type = a complex mosaic instance object_id = IN3_1

                          ERROR (CDBOA-603): Cellview AN2/layout.cdb contains an
                         instance on a net, IN23 on Net32. This object type is not
                         supported by OpenAccess and will not be translated.
                          Here:
                          object_type = an instance on a net object_id = IN23 on
                         Net32

     

    I'm currently using IC 6.15.

    What can i do to retain the cdf callback?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Peter,

    Those messages don't appear to be anything to do with CDF Callbacks, and lack of CDF Callbacks should not cause pcellEvalFail messages.

    It's saying you have complex mosaics (presumably created using the structure compiler, which was end-of-lifed some time ago).

    Anyway, best thing is to log a service request with customer support.

    Andrew.

    Re: cdb2oa (pcellEvailFailed) Reply

    Hi Andrew,

    While converting main tech lib(cdb format) to oa format using command, I am getting the following errors and warnings for almost all the pcells. The error is as follows:

     ERROR   (CDBOA-612): Cell                                                        
                         ../../../../../../bicmos5hpe/V2.1.0.5/bicmos5h
                         has an illegal CDBA name. Its contents will be copied to  
                         the OpenAccess version of the library but will not be      
                         translated.

    WARNING (CDBOA-406): Directory                                                 
                         ../../../../../../bicmos5hpe/V2.1.0.5/bicmos5h
                         is in a cellview. The directory and its contents will be  
                         copied to the destination database but will not be         
                         translated.

     

    So in any layout, which contains pcells from techlib, "pcellEvailFailed" message is coming. Please help me how to overcome this error. 

     

    Thanks in Advance

    Lakshmi Prasanna

     Instead of tagging on to this very old topic, please start a new topic.

    What is the name of the llibrary you are converting? It looks like there is additional directories in the structure which would cause it to ignore the contents.

    cdb2oa expects: libDirectory/cellDirectory/viewDirectory/dataFile
