    How to convert .cdl file to schematic in 614 version. Reply

    Hi all,

           I have a tsl18fs510hdpm.cdl file for standard libraries. I need to get scheamtics from this file for 6141 version. Previously we have converted standard library from IC5141 to 6141 version. Is there any issue with this conversion? Even spiceIn.log file is also not created. I got below error message in CIW. Please let me know if is there any issue.

    /remote2/tools/cadence/IC6145/tools/dfII/bin/32bit/spiceIn: error while loading shared libraries: libgdbm.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

     

    Thank you,

    Sarvani.

    Hi I got below error in log file.

         Inst: M1
            Found net 'CO'.
            Created net 'U68_in'.
            Found net 'VSS'.
            Found net 'VSS'.
            Created net 'n5V_hp'.

            Master Cell: 'n5V_hp'.
            Did not find 'ts018_pm_prim.n5V_hp:symbol'.
            Did not find 'basic.n5V_hp:symbol'.
    ERROR (SPICEIN-24): Spice In did not find the symbol view of the master cell 'n5V_hp' of the instance
    'M1' in the subcircuit 'ad01d1_pm'. Specify the reference library that has the symbol
    view of the master cell, or use device-mapping to map 'n5V_hp' to a different
    cell.

    But  n5V_hp is a model name. I think It's not  cell name

    The first error was presumably due to you not having the gdbm package on your machine:

    UNIX> rpm -q -f /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2
    gdbm-1.8.0-24.i386

    (this was on a RHEL4 machine).

    The second is probably because you've not set up the device mapping correctly - it needs to know when it encounters a transistor with a particular model, which transistor cell it should map to.

    Please read the documentation in the Design Data Translators Reference manual (where SPICE In is documented). Since you gave no information as to what the file looks like nor what your mapping setup was, it's hard to give you anything specific.

    Andrew.

     Hi Andrew,

                   I have just changed Device mapping as per your suggitions. Now it works. Thank you very much. I am very greatful to you.

    Thank you,

    Sarvani
