    Assura 3.1 Error -VDB- Reply
    Hello!

    I am trying to run DRC but I get the following error message:

    ...
    function density_area_area redefined
    *Error* load: can't access file – "umc90N_memory_v14.rul"
    *WARNING* Failed to build VDB. Cannot submit DRC Run.

    How can I overcome this problem?
    Thanks in advance

     Hi Thodoros

    I think perhaps you can resolve the issue quite easily by providing the correct location for the file "umc90N_memory_v14.rul". : )  If the file location is correct, check if it has the correct permission for reading:

    unix>ls -l /your-path/umc90N_memory_v14.rul

     

     Best regards

    Thanks for the immediate reply.

     However I cannot find the file umc90N_memory_v14.rul. Could it be a permitions problem?

    Any more ideas?

    Thanks

     Hi Thodoros

    This is precisely the problem. The file is not present. That's why Assura cannot complete the drc run. : )  If there is an "assura_tech.lib" file in your working directory, maybe you can search in the directory listed in the file. Perhaps the file name is wrong? Perhaps the file is in another directory? It would be good if your cad support can help you to locate the file. This is not a file permission problem. It is a missing file problem. 

    Best regards
    Quek

    I moved this to the Custom IC Design forum as this has nothing to do with SKILL.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
