    Calibre LVS - Compare Two Spice Netlists without Extraction

    steven_bellock@mentor.com

      I have two SPICE netlists that I would like to compare with LVS, and I do not have the .gds layout file. This should be the second step of the Two-Step Calibre nmLVS-H Data Flow. The documentation says that I should use "calibre -lvs -hier" to do the comparison. However I get the error:

       

      ERROR: Failure to open input file filename.gds for read access.

       

      How do I compare two netlists without going through the extraction step?

       

      Thanks
