Re: rule deck format

Hi,

I guess if you are talking about the DRC/LVS rule deck files then the format is the same whether it is synopsys or cadence.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Thanks,
Chinni.

rule deck format

Cadence format ( from the past till now ) might exist Diva, Assura and Dracula I believe,
There are tools to convert in between Hercules runset formats to some of them above,

Try contact your EDA vendor AE. This is written in some manual and even some older manual of Hercules too.

Re: rule deck format

YA fab guys will release different rule deck for various eda companies.. i have separate run deck for cadence,synopsys..

I think there is no generator like that to convert one edatool format to another edatool format.. but can write rule deck urself according to the tool u use..

mostly u can get it from Fab vendor itself..

Thanks

Shankar
