    Hi KVB,

    This is not possible. You need to start with a netlist. You might be able to do some sort of workaround using OA, but I don't know your exact situation (and I'm not an OA expert either).

    Hey Kari, 

    Say you have a gds file and you have a netlist generated from a program such as micromagic max? I want to import those files into encounter do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Anita

    Hi Anita,

    Again, I'm no expert with the OA stuff, so there may be something you can do there if you can get the design into virtuoso. But otherwise, you need LEF files and .lib files at a minimum along with the netlist.
