STIL as a DFT drc file should be interchangable across all three test tools; Synopsy-Tetramax, Mentor-FastScan & Cadence Encounter-Test . . .
This is pretty well controlled by the IEEE standard of STIL. Previously, in 2006 when STIL was evolving, some interoperability issues were seen. Pretty robust now!

thank you adam..
can you tell me which tools in mentor and cadence produce STILL protocol file that i can use as input in tetramax.
or fast scan of mentor graphics is enough for testing a circuit.

We have a flow setup with Cadence RTL Compiler. The command for that is
write_atpg -stil > design.stil

This can be imported into Tetramax. With Mentor, I am assuming DFT advisor can do the same thing . .
