    D.I.E format Reply

    Hi All,

    anyone has got idea of what exactly the D.I.E format (which is used to create die symbols in Parts Editor) is?

    or where can we find an example of the D.I.E format text file?

    I believe this format is typically written out from the Virtuoso line of tools. So, you could generate one from a simple IC design from that tool if you want an example. I can't recall ever seeing a published format spec for it, though you could probably find one with Google.

    You've not mentioned if there's a strong reason to prefer this file format. The die text format, which is a simple CSV format file, is generally easier to write (and easier to modify as a user using a spreadsheet tool like Excel). Have you considered using that format, instead? It includes some capabiities that the D.I.E. file does not, too, like being able to embed the die's attachment type (wire bond vs. flip-chip), orientation, placed die rotation, die shrink and scribe information, etc. 

    Hope that helps.

    Hi All,

     

     Am too looking for D.I.E format file. If any one have, please forward the sample file. So that, from that I can create one for my design. Would like to use this format file instead of Die Text IN.

     

    Thanks

     I think I have a format guide, but I would concur with Tyler: there are formats like die text that offer better performance and more capability than D.I.E. I'd like to understand why you need D.I.E. specifically...  is it because of the link to VLE?

    Bill,

      I use Text in wizard only.. But lets take an example. If we want to create Flipchip DIE say it has 10000 Die Pins. I have to format the excel sheet with the Co-ordinates etc to import. I Just want to try out  D.I.E , to see whether it does the job more easy.

    Thanks for the reply. Can you share the format?
