    Spice netlist generated by v2lvs

      Hi all,

       

       

      Thank you for taking the time to read this thread.

       

       

      I am trying to figure out what is the purpose of the $PINS in the netlist generated by v2lvs.

       

       

      I use both Calibre lvs and Assura lvs but when I try to use Assura on netlist generated by v2lvs it gives me an error.

       

       

      Thank you

          Hi Said,

           

           

          I think the default $PINS method works well for Calibre because it reduces the dependence upon pin order, which in turn reduces the need for information of pin order from primitive libraries.

           

           

          v2lvs has the -i switch that you may be interested in. It results in a netlist that uses pin order instead of $PINS. In the Calibre Verification Users Manual there is a section titled "Using -i to Generate Simulation Output".

           

           

          That may be what you need.

           

           

          Kind regards,
