    Error Generating Netlist ( Allegro Version 15.2 ) Reply

    Hello,

    I am getting a error while generating netlist.Can anyone tell me what this error message means ?

    Please note that, at first I was using a part in Capture Library which I modified and then I used it in the design. At that time , I was getting the below mentioned error while generating netlist. But when I generated a totally new part in capture  library and used it in my design ,  I was able to generate netlist without any error.

    Can anyone help in this matter ...


    Design Name:
    e:\orcad\allegro
    \design-ge.dsn
    Netlist Directory:
    e:\orcad\allegro\allegro
    Configuration File:
    e:\orcad\allegro\signoise.runcases.cfg,1
    Spawning... "C:\Cadence\SPB_15.2\tools\capture\pstswp.exe" -pst -d "e:\orcad\allegro\design-ge.dsn" -n "e:\orcad\allegro\allegro" -c "e:\orcad\allegro\signoise.runcases.cfg,1" -v 3 -j "PCB Footprint"

    Load thepstxprt.dat file into an Excel spread sheet and look in or near line 38. This will point you to what the problem is.

    Can you delete 'SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4_4LEGDOME' this part.And place it once again from the schematic library.
    It may get solved. If not recreate the part once againg and try it.

    Yes , I did the same thing , recreated the part and the problem was solved.

    But I was just trying to get what role exactly the files

    E:\Orcad\allegro/pstchip.dat
    E:\Orcad\allegro/pstxprt.dat

    have to play while generating netlist ....and due to what consequences errors associated with these files may generate ...

    Regards,
    Prajakta.
