.lib file contains the following
all parameter units like area, time power...(in um, ns, nw)
the timing and power information of the different gates.
wire load model(like 10x10, 20x20...)
these information is used in the synthesis process
using library compiler .lib fiile is converted into synopsys data base format .db which is used in the synthesis by the Design compiler
