Guys, I have a question regarding Cadence LEF format. If you're using Synopsys LEF format, you can have either strong or weak connections. Here is an example:

Strong connection

-----------------------
PIN A
DIRECTION INOUT ;
USE GROUND ;
PORT
LAYER METAL6 ;
RECT 48.86 0 54.18 3.64 ;
LAYER METAL6 ;
RECT 81.34 0 86.66 3.64 ;
END
PORT


Weak connection

-----------------------
PIN A
DIRECTION INOUT ;
USE GROUND ;
PORT
LAYER METAL6 ;
RECT 48.86 0 54.18 3.64 ;
END
PORT
LAYER METAL6 ;
RECT 81.34 0 86.66 3.64 ;
END
PORT

So the questions are.
1. How PnR tool handle this.
2. Has Cadence LEF something similar and if yes, the same question, how Cadence PnR tool handle this.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the info, blue1988. So you meant that you never met Cadence LEF with weak connections, right?
