  • Power connectivity for SRAMs
    Hello, Used Encounter successfully on a number of projects but always only with the standard cell library. I want to use some Faraday SRAMs which I've built and integrated into the flow, I'm a little unsure how to connect the power rails up, any help would be appreciated, detail ...

  • 3rd party supplier for a standard cell library -> UMC 55nm 3v3
    Hello, I'm trying to locate a 3rd party supplier for a standard cell library -> UMC55SP process 3v3 which will be used in the EDI flow.  Does anyone know a vendor?

  • Re: Encounter -> Report Power using VCD
    Hello Kari, Thanks for your reply, I managed to debug the issue a few days back. The magic command to see what nets were not being annotated is: dump_unannotated_nets -file <filename> -type annotationType vcd It was then very esy to debug the issue, it was the lack of any logfile that was my issue debugging the problem. The problem was ...

  • Re: Disable Scan Shift Enable in Functional Mode
    Hello, Many thanks for your reply, it was very helpful. So I created a small hierarchal block for the shift enable gate and used this command as your suggestion. define_dft shift_enable -name SE -active high -hookup_pin [find / -pin hlt5000_toplevel/u_scan_shift_gate/scan_shift_enable_gate] -hookup_polarity non_inverted [find / -port ...

  • Disable Scan Shift Enable in Functional Mode
    Hello, I'm trying to disable shift enable in function mode.   This is the VHDL code:  i_scan_shift_enable <= '0' when scan_mode_in = '0' else scan_shift_enable;     So "scan_shift_enable" is driven from a pad and  "i_scan_shift_enable" drives the flops. However ...

  • Encounter -> Report Power using VCD
    Hello, I've generating a Power Report using a VCD file for activity: 1. Exported netlist from encounter. 2. Used this netlist in ncsim and generated VCD file  3. Read in the activity file into encounter, this is the cmd generated from the menu:  read_activity_file -report_missing_nets true -format VCD -scope ...

  • Re: RTL Complier flow with clock gating and scan insertion
     Hello, Thanks for you reply, I did have that attribute set but I'd messed up on the syntax ! I got it working last night with by using the test mode signal:          set_attribute lp_clock_gating_test_signal scan_mode_in /designs/$ec::MODULE Then I tried your method today and this worked ...

  • RTL Complier flow with clock gating and scan insertion
    Hello,  I've been struggling to scan insert and clock gate a small design, I believe I've been flowing the recommended flow: 1. If I clock gate by setting "set_attribute lp_insert_clock_gating true" then "connect_chains" in the flow any flops that have been clock gated are not in the scan chain. They appear ...

  • Re: EDI -> Empty Modules
    Hello, I've had a look at the cmd file generated using the file->import design. If I've understood correctly for some reason the init_lef_file variable is being set correctly then cleared. *** Memory pool thread-safe mode activated. <CMD> set conf_ioOri R0 <CMD> set defHierChar / <CMD> set ...

  • Re: EDI -> Empty Modules
    Hello, Thanks for your reply, good point because I can't see the lef being read in the log. The lef file however is being correctly add to the form. I've added a snippet of the log file and a snippet of the lef file.  I'm no expert on lef files, does it look correct? Log file -> Reading netlist ... Backslashed names ...
