Re: def instead of lef

Sorry you cant give def instead of lef..
lef is layout exchange format.. it has physical information i.e., goementric...etc for all standard cells in that process..

Def is design exchange format.. after final design you can export floorplan and power routing in def format for further use..

Both are different..

Shankar
