    LVS for digital design

    I am designing a mixed-signal circuit
    the digital part is implemented using Verilog, synthesized with DC and the backend is done with SOC encounter, now the problem is how to do LVS

    The standard cell vender gives us a CDL file for LVS, in which it defines the sizes of transistors and their connections, but using simplified PMOS/NMOS model files (can't work with Spectre/SPICE, just show the transistor sizes).
    I have the GDS file and also the verilog source code, is there anyone know how to utilize the CDL file provided as "LVS netlist" for LVS? Btw, I am using Calibre.

    Thanks and any sugguestion is appreicated.

    Re: LVS for digital design

    It seems that you need to you calibre to convert verilog netlist to CDL files and write a file that includes digital netlist and analog netlist. Then you can run LVS.
