Don't I need to point to License file? Does SOC requires lmgrd or simply LM_LICENSE_FILE variable..

how to install cadence encounter

LM_LICENSE_FILE is ok....

If you want you can also use the CDS_LIC_FILE variable instead......

Cheers.

how to install cadence soc encounter

Thanks; it is working.

By the way; does anyone know how to configure cdsdocs (online documentation) when using both IC5 and SOC.

Secondly, I think USR file contains whole BASE with some inclusions .... so can one install SOC without BASE file?

encounter 52 install

I have a few queries. Hopefully someone can answer them.

What is the difference between BASE and USR files?

Do I only need to update the environment variables to point to the USR installation directory in order to use the USR pack?

What is the latest USR pack?

I saw in the installation directory, a directory named Buildgates. Can we use Buildgates inside SOC?

Thanks

encounter license

I don't think the USR included all Base files, it's service release only, maybe can run, but i'm not sure all the functions will run correctly or not. Check the install file sizes of Base release and USR release, you will find the Base release is the biggest.

What about Buildgates present in the installation directory. Can we use it? Does it require setting some environment variables?

"set BINDIR = /Cadence/SOC22/tools.sun4v/bin
set FEBINDIR = /Cadence/SOC22/bin
set CDS_PLAT = `${BINDIR}/cds_plat`"

can you explain the difference between "set VAR_XXX = ..." and "setenv VAR_YYY ..." ? what is the first type meaning and where is it used for ?

Is there an equivalent form in BASH shell ?

The form with set var=... or setenv var is used in CSH.
For bash, you can try:
var=...
export var or
directly export var = ...

Hope this helps! :wink:

What should I do with USR pack? Just overwrite BASE by USR?

install soc encounter

Hello,

if you execute ./Setup.sh from the USR release and install the products you want, the necessary files will be installed and the unnecessary files will be removed.
you need the baseline and the usr release for this installation.

greetings,

Basically it's a Place and Route tool as same as Apollo, Astro from Avant! or Blast from Magma. The name of the tool is not important because it change all the time, what it can do and what do you want to do is more important.
