DESCRIPTION
planDesign command in EDI generates a quick, initial floorplan that can be used as a starting point
for making the final floorplan. Use the planDesign command to create multiple alternative
floorplans. User can then test the floorplans to find the one that gives the best placement and
routing results. PlanDesign can be run in timingDrivenMode. By default, Automatic Floorplan
Synthesis takes timing constraints into account during floorplan generation, if timing libraries (.lib)
and SDC constraint files are loaded in the design. It will not perform timing aware floorplanning if
either the timing library or constraint file is not loaded, and if either liberty or constraint file is missing
plan- Design would issue the warning message : "Failed to read in timing data, check timing
constraint or library, set timingDriven false." This warning message is added to tell user the reason
is that the timing data is lacking or not colmplete.

SYNOPSIS
Did not meet the max transition constraint. %s

DESCRIPTION
Failure to meet a maximum transition time constraint in the clock tree network usually occurs
because:
- Specified transition time is too low. Use 'get_ccopt_property tar- get_max_trans' to check the
global setting, and 'get_ccopt_property target_max_trans -clock_tree' to check the setting on each
clock tree. Use 'report_ccopt_clock_trees' to get a list of violating pins, then check the isDontTouch
property on the attached net.
- A net cannot be buffered because it has been marked dont_touch. Use 'report_ccopt_clock_trees'
to get a list of violating pins, then check the isDontTouch property on the attached net.
- A net cannot be buffered because some aspect of the floorplan (power domains, blockages,
regions, macros or other fixed instances), prevent placement of buffers.
- Detailed routing of the clock tree has produced routing detours, or excessive numbers of small
jogs with vias.
For floorplan and/or routing issues, find the offending net(s) with 'report_ccopt_clock_trees' as
above, and observe the floorplan where the net has been routed.

ignored during clustering.
This behavior can be disabled by setting the cts_cluster- ing_ignore_tiny_blockages option to false.
Alternatively, the area threshold below which blockages are ignored by clustering can be set with
the cts_clustering_ignore_tiny_blockages_area option.
CTS steps after clustering will still respect all blockages regardless of size. The legality of the clock
trees will not be affected by using these options in a full CTS run.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
clock_root:%s has no single skew group in cts.skew_groups.source prop- erty for this clock_tree
property: %s

DESCRIPTION
This message is issued when CCOpt cannot access a skew group property via a clock tree, due to
the clock_tree not having a single skew_group listed in its cts.skew_groups.source property.
The following properties have moved from clock_tree design objects to skew_group design objects:
cts.target.skew_group
cts.target.skew
cts.target.skew.<corner>.<path>
cts.target.skew
cts.target.insertion_delay
cts.last_target.insertion_delay
cts.last_target.skew.<corner>.<path>
Accessing these properties on clock_tree design objects is obsolete. Scripts which loop through
clock trees accessing these properties should be updated to access these properties on the
appropriate skew group design objects directly.

DESCRIPTION
PROBLEM: During library loading, library cells are marked as "cant_use" in the following
circumstances: 1) if the cell has LEF but neither Ver- ilog nor Liberty data ; 2) if no LEF data was
found ; 3) if there were conflicting cell descriptions.
IMPACT: CCOpt cannot load designs that contain instances of "cant_use" library cells.
SOLUTION: The most likely cause of this error is that you have not con- figured your library files
correctly. You may have configured CCOpt to use the wrong library files, or you may only have
provided a subset of required files. In this situation, you should update your configuration to use the
correct Liberty, Verilog, and LEF files.
In rare situations, this error could also be caused by a missing Ver- ilog model. In this you could
"black box" the offending library cell (see below).
MORE INFORMATION: As noted above, in most situations this error can be solved by supplying
the correct library files.
If you need to "black box" an offending library cell, you can supply a Verilog wrapper for an
offending cell. For example, create a file "blackbox.v" with the following contents:
module lib_cell_x (pinA); inout pinA; endmodule
Then update your library configuration to load this file by including "blackbox.v" in either the
"define_lib_group -verilog" arguments or the verilog_library option.
Note that the verilog_black_boxes option should not be used in this situation. The

NAME
ENCCK-209

SYNOPSIS
Clock %s has been synthesized. Type 'man ENCCK-209' to see extended message about this
warning.

DESCRIPTION
This message indicates Clock Tree Synthesis (CTS) thinks this clock tree has already been built
and, therefore, will not run. The reason it thinks clock has been synthesized is explained in one of
the mes- sages that precede it. For example, if a clock buffer or excluded cell is found on the clock
net while tracing it, it will issue an ENCCK-766 or ENCCK-767 message and stop. In order to run
CTS you must delete the existing clock tree first.
When running clockDesign it will automatically call deleteClockTree at beginning to remove buffers
on the clock. However deleteClockTree cannot remove fixed instances. You should run following
command to unfix existing buffers on the clock so deleteClockTree can remove them:
changeClockStatus -clk clockName -noFixedNetWires -noFixedBuffers
This will set status to Placed for all buffers and wires in the speci- fied clock tree. You can use the -
all option in place of -clk <clockName> to perform this operation on all clocks defined in the CTS
specification file. Once you change the status to Placed, deleteClockTree will be able to remove all
existing buffers in the clock tree.

NAME
ENCCK-361

SYNOPSIS
The parameter '-localSkew' is not supported in Multi-Corner CTS. To run ckECO -localSkew on a
single corner, specify the same analysis view for both setup and hold. For example, if the desired
analysis view is func_worst, then do "set_analysis_view -setup func_worst -hold func_worst" and
reload the clock spec file.

DESCRIPTION
The above error is generated in EDI when trying to run command "ckECO -localSkew" in MMMC
mode.
What is the recommended way to run "ckECO -localSkew" in MMMC mode?
By default, CTS attempts to optimize across all active setup and hold views. The -localSkew
parameter of ckECO does not support this, and hence the above error is generated.
The workaround is to run "ckECO -localSkew" for a single setup view. Select the setup view which
you want to target and specify this view for both setup and hold.
Example: set_analysis_view -setup setup_func -hold setup_func

SYNOPSIS
Clock %s has multiple definitions in the clock tree specification file.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is issued when there are multiple definitions of the clock in the database. This
typically occurs when you run specifyClockTree multiple times without running
cleanupSpecifyClockTree first. Before running specify- ClockTree run cleanupSpecifyClockTree to
clear any CTS specification currently in the database. Then run specifyClockTree. Note, if you are
running "clockDe- sign -spefFile specFileName", it automatically runs cleanupSpecifyClockTree
before specifyClockTree.
The other cause of this message is if you have multiple autoCTSRootPin definitions for the same
clock inside your CTS constraints file. If this is the case, remove the multiple definitions.

SYNOPSIS
Find excluded cell %s in the clock tree.

DESCRIPTION
This message indicates an excluded cell was found downstream of from the clock root you are
trying to synthesize. Therefore, Clock Tree Synthesis (CTS) will not run. Avoid this warning by
deleting the clock tree prior to CTS using the deleteClockTree command. clockDesign
automatically runs deleteClockTree before tracing the clock but deleteClockTree cannot remove
fixed instances. Therefore, you should run the following to unfix the clock tree so deleteClockTree
can remove the existing buffers in the tree:
changeClockStatus -clk clockName -noFixedNetWires -noFixedBuffers
This will set the placement status to Placed for all buffers and wires in the specified clock tree. You
can use the -all option in place of -clk clockName to perform this on all clocks defined in the CTS
specification file. Once you set the status to Placed, deleteBufferTree will be able to remove these

Alternatively, if you prefer to preserve portions of the clock tree and synthesize the rest you can use
PreservePin. PreservePin preserves the netlist for the pin and pins below the pin in the clock tree.

SYNOPSIS
Clock %s contains equivalent gates that have bounding boxes of their downstream leaf pins
overlapped. This is most probably caused by cloning without adequate placement information. Use
one clock gate to drive all leaf pins, or, division of leaf pins based on physical loca- tions between
clock gates may help improve this situation.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is part of the new CTS diagnostic feature which is designed to highlight potential
issues or inefficiencies in the clock setup.0t is issued by clock gating instance location check at pre-
syn- thesis stage.0he message means that two (or more) cloned gates are driving registers in a
common area where the bounding boxes of down- stream sinks overlap each other physically. This
can lead to poor QoR.0 possible reason for that is previous clock gate cloning was not done
properly, therefore they could be good candidates for decloning/cloning by performing
ckDecloneGate followed by ckCloneGate on suggested gating instances.0ither one gate could
drive all the registers here or the division of the registers between the clock gates could be done
better.

NAME
ENCCM-164

SYNOPSIS
Local subtree rooted at %s input %s does not solely drive leaves.

DESCRIPTION
Clock mesh currently can only synthesize local trees with a single level of logic. This means each
local tree root must drive only leaves and not other buffers or gates. If a subtree "does not drive
solely leaves" it means it is too deep for current local tree synthesis to handle.
Study the structure below the local subtree root identified in the message to determine whether
multi-level local tree synthesis is truly required. In some special cases it may be possible to reduce
the subtree depth by pruning some non-critical portion of the subtree. In this case, explicitly LeafPin
specifications might be used as a workaround.

NAME
ENCCM-279

SYNOPSIS
Cannot determine placement area without mesh driver sites. Check clock mesh specification.

DESCRIPTION
Clock mesh synthesis determines the available placeable area for a mesh by first identifying a set
of suitable rows and then subtracting placement obstructions from the row area.
To determine the "suitable rows" clock mesh synthesis first collects the sites associated with the set
specified drive cells choices, and then collects the rows associated with these sites. This process
can fail if there are no specified driver cells, or if none of the drivers cells have valid site information.
To avoid this problem, verify that the clock mesh specification includes DriveCell information and
the LEF MACRO definitions for these cells have SITE statements.

DESCRIPTION
EDI 13.1 release onwards, tool issues above error message if library sets are not defined in CPF.
The library sets can be defined either using viewdefinition.tcl file or using define_library_set
command in CPF. The library sets defined in CPF can be further associated to nominal condition as
shown below:
create_nominal_condition -name off -voltage 0 -ground_voltage 0.0 -state_off
update_nominal_condition -name off -library_set <lib set name >
But, if the library sets are not defined in CPF, then CPF will issue above error message while
executing create_power_mode command:
create_power_mode -name cpu_off -domain_conditions {pd_1@off pd_2@on}
To resolve this error message and use the library sets defined with viewdefinition.tcl, please set
below variable before loadCPF:
setMsvMode -useViewDefLibSet true
This makes CPF to recognize the libray sets defined in viewdefinition.tcl and do not require
update_nominal_condition command in CPF to have library sets defined.

DESCRIPTION
Library set in the CPF file needs to contain the same library files as in the viewDefinition file. This
message is reported when CPF file loads a library file that is not loaded into Encounter by
viewDefinition file during design initialization. To solve it, check the library set definitions in CPF
and viewDefini- tion files and make sure them consistent. A good practice is to define library file
paths in a separate file and use variable in CPF and viewDefinition file so that they will always be
consistent.

NAME
ENCCPF-251

SYNOPSIS
line %s: create_isolation_rule -name %s: Can not find an isolation cell with a valid location domain
%s and with the isolation output state %s. The possible reasons are: 1) the specified location in
update_isola- tion_rule is different from the location in define_isolation_cell, or 2) the output state
for the valid isolation cell does not match to its output state specified in create_isolation_rule.

DESCRIPTION
The message shows that EDI cannot insert an isolation cell with a valid location and with required
isolation_output state. The reasons could be:
1. The rule-specified location is different from the valid location specified in define_isolation_cell.
For example:
define_isolation_cell -cells isoandlow_f2_pm -valid_location on create_isolation_rule -name
VDD2LSW1_iso_low_from \ -from PD_VDD2LSW1 update_isolation_rules -names
VDD2LSW1_iso_low_from \ -location from -cells {isoandlow_f*_pm}
The rule specifies "-location from" (PD_VDD2LSW1 is a switchable power domain) and "-cells
isoandlow_f*_pm". But all the isolation cells isoandlow_f*_pm are specified as "-valid_location on"
which means the isolation cells are to be placed in an unswitched domain. Therefore these
isoandlow_f*_pm cells do not fit this rule. If the rule specifies "-location to" in this case, then these
cells would fit the rule.
2. No valid cell can match the rule's output state requirement when the isolation_condition is
asserted. For example,
create_isolation_rule -name iso_low -isolation_output low update_isolation_rules -names iso_low -
cells {isonandhigh*_pm}

October 2014 218 Product Version 14.20


EDI System Error Message Reference

There are no isolation cells matching the name isonandhigh*_pm with isolation_output low.
Therefore the message of CPF-251 is issued. Verify the cell name and confirm a cell exists which
matches the cell specified and also matches the required isolation_output state.

library defining those cells are not loaded while executing init_design. Please check this domain
library binding.

DESCRIPTION
This is caused by library which defining those cells are not loaded or binding to domain. you need
to check domain's library binding in view_definition.tcl file. In view_definition.tcl file, we use
command "update_delay_corner -power_domain -library_set" to specify domain's library.
Example: In view_definition.tcl: Only have : "create_delay_corner -name -library_set -rc_corner" No
"update_delay_corner -power_domain -library_set"
There are two solutions:
1. You need to modify this mmmc file by adding "update_delay_corner -power_domain -library_set"
to specify the domain's library binding.
or
2. In foundation flow,do NOT specify the mmmc file and let CPF to set up the MMMC. in the file
FF/init.tcl,specify the init_mmmc_file to an empty string "".
then commitCPF will setup the MMMC based on the CPF spec and the domain library binding.

In real designs, an RTL or logical-level power domain may have to be implemented into different
physical regions with unconnected local power supplies. Such implementation of a power domain
is called a Dis- joint Power Domain.
Example: 1. One box modifyPowerDomainAttr PD1 -disjointBoxList {46 479 319 543} **ERROR:
(ENCCPF-2510): the box list specified is not disjoint
2. Abutted modifyPowerDomainAttr PD1 -disjointBoxList {46 479 319 543 46 475 263 479}

SYNOPSIS
Loading floorplan after commitCPF may cause inconsistency in power domains. The recommended
low power flow is to load floorplan before loadCPF.

DESCRIPTION
This message pops-up when the user tries to load floor-plan file after CPF is loaded and committed
to the design
Example: In order to avoid this issue, the user shousld load floor-plan file in after design is imported,
then load and commit cpf file. This will ensure correct power intent information being applied to the

SYNOPSIS
Line %ld: OffMGrid: %s (%d, %d) (%d, %d) %s %s is not on Manufacturing Grid.

DESCRIPTION
This error reports that a wire's coordinate in the DEF file are not on the manufacturing grid which
will result in DRC errors.
The coordinates in the error message are in database units per micron (dbuPerMicron). Look for the
following line in the DEF file to deter- mine how many dbu's is 1 micron:
UNITS DISTANCE MICRONS dbuPerMicron ;
When reading DEF EDI System will check that each edge and the center- line of wires is on the
manufacturing grid defined in the technology LEF file (MANUFACTURINGGRID).
One possible scenario that could cause this issue is that the two edges of the wire are on
manufacturing grid but the center line, which is what DEF syntax uses, may not be. To check if your
dbu's have enough granularity, multiply dbuPerMicron * manufaturingGrid. The result should be an
integer quantity that is evenly divisible by two to ensure the center-line is on grid.
For example, if MANUFACTURINGGRID is 0.005, this is only achievable with a DBU of 2000.
- (1000*0.005)/2 = 2.5, (not evenly divisible by two), the result could be off manufacturing grid. -
(2000*0.005)/2 = 5, (evenly divisible by two), the result will be on manufacturing grid.
Or to say it another way: If dbuPerMicron * manufacturingGrid is an odd number (e.g. 1000*0.005 =
5), you cannot create a path (center-line based) that has a width that is an odd number of
manufacturing grids wide.

DESCRIPTION
This error reports that a row references a site that has not been defined. The sites must be defined

Failed to open %s file %s for %s

DESCRIPTION
A file system error occurred when attempting to open a file. Usually this is because you do not have
permission to read or write a file in the current working directory, or have specified a file for read
which does not exist.
Example: Use the operating system 'ls -l' command to check file permissions. Use the operating
system 'chmod' command to change permissions. The operating system 'df' command can be used
to check available space. For example: encounter 2> df -H Filesystem Size Used Avail Use%

NAME
ENCEXT-1197

SYNOPSIS
The '/tmp' directory has been specified for cache/temporary data stor- age. In distributed processing
mode TQRC/IQRC expects cache/temporary data directory to be accessible on all hosts used for
distributed pro- cessing. Therefore the current directory will be used instead of '/tmp'.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is issued when distributed processing is enabled for TQRC/IQRC and FE_TMPDIR or
TMPDIR is set to /tmp. Distributed process- ing requires that the temporary storage area should be
accessible to all hosts. The software will use the current directory instead.
You can specify a directory for temporary storage in any of the follow- ing ways, depending on what
is available:
1. Save in the directory defined by the environment variable, FE_TMPDIR.
2. Save in the directory defined by the environment variable, TMPDIR.
3. Save in the current directory, if it is writeable.
4. Save in /tmp.

DESCRIPTION
This warning message is displayed when the capacitance table file is not specified for RC corners

ENCEXT-6202

SYNOPSIS
In addition to the technology file, capacitance table file is specified for all RC corners. If the
technology file for all RC corners is already specified, the capacitance table file is not required for
pre- Route and postRoute extraction. In a new session, the capacitance table files can be removed
from the create_rc_corner command. In this case, the technology file will be used for preRoute
extraction and effort level medium/high/signoff of postRoute extraction.

DESCRIPTION
This warning message is displayed when process node set using 'setDe- signMode' is greater than
32nm and both technology file and captable file are specified for all RC corners. Using this setup,
captable file would be used for preRoute extraction. However, to enable preRoute extraction using
technology file, remove the captable file specifica- tion from create_rc_corner in a new session.
This would change default value of effort level for postRoute extraction to be 'medium' and effort
level 'low' would not be allowed.

DESCRIPTION
In EDI FlexModel technology you cannot have a flexmodel as a partition, the above message is
indicating that.
EDI will not have any errors during creation of %s as a flexmodel even though its declared as a
partition in the original netlist.
However, if you load the design back after creating the flex models this errors appears.
Now, below is solution that you can trick EDI to have a flex model as a partition:
SOLUTION after you hit this error:
#Save out a current floorplan for future use:
encounter> saveFPlan current_Floopplan.fp
#Delete all existing Partitions.
encounter> deletePartition -all
## Restore the protomodels again
encounter> source DBS/$DESIGN/$Name.protomodels
## Read the previously saved floorplan to restore partitions
encounter> loadFPlan current_Floopplan.fp

DESCRIPTION
In the design there were many ports that had been assigned as set_dont_touch. These ports were
assigned to nets of the same name in the design. Based on the fact that these are dont_touch nets
in the design, EDI System will not insert logic onto those nets, even if they are suggested as
necessary by the CPF for the design. With the SDC and CPF in conflict, EDI System honors the
SDC that the net should not be changed and gave the above warning.
Example: The user should confirm that the ports/nets labeled as dont_touch should indeed need to
be dont_touch. And if it is necessary to create buffering, level shifting, or isolation on those
ports/nets, then the setting the port/net as dont_touch in SDC should be removed.

setPlaceMode a??selectiveBlockage true createPlaceBlockage a??type soft {-box {x1 y1 x2 y2 } | -
polygon {{x1 y1 } {x2 y2 }...} | -boxList {{llx1 lly1 urx1 ury1} {llx2 lly2 ...}}
However, this option allows not only all buffers and inverters but also isolation cells and level
shifters. If user wants to limit the size, type of cells or even instances that are allowed in the area,
one more command can be used:
unspecifySelectiveBlkgGate [-help] [-cell cellName ] [-inst instName ]
In addition, other types of cells or instances can be allowed through the following command:
specifySelectiveBlkgGate [-help] [-cell cellName ] [-inst instName ]
This last 2 commands work when setPlaceMode -selectiveBlockage is set to true.

Check and correct the LEF file or OA abstract view.

DESCRIPTION
If the customer is using OA libraries, this message should automati- cally switch to say OA abstract
view instead of LEF. If EDI does not have a mechanism to allow this type of dynamic response to
the ERROR message, then the message should be changed to say OA abstract view or LEF file
Example: The cell '%s' and cell '%s' are using same tech site %s, but they have different
VDDonbotom attributes. Need to align VDD/GND pins of single height row/double height row when
creating rows. Check and correct the LEF file.

SYNOPSIS
The techSite '%s' has no related cells in LEF library. Cannot make cal- culations for this site type
unless cell models of this type exist in the LEF library. If the SITE is not used by the library you can
ignore this warning or remove the SITE definition from the LEF to avoid this message.

DESCRIPTION
This warning occurs when a site is defined without being referenced by any cell in LEF library. The
tool uses the SITE definition along with the library cells which use the SITE to validate the power
and ground pins are defined consistently so followpin routing will be successful.
Example: * The following example shows a predefined SITE 'core' which is refer- enced by a cell
'AND0':
SITE core SITE 0.180 BY 1.114 ; SYMMETRY Y ; CLASS CORE ; END core
MACRO AND0 CLASS CORE ; SIZE 0.360 BY 2.228 ; SITE core; --------- ... END AND0

DESCRIPTION
This error simply means that there is still a module for the ILM in the verilog netlist, which is not
empty. There may be gates, or at least assign statements in it.Currently, in the ILM flow, we don't
allow the ILM as non-empty module definitions during design import phase. Only empty module
definitions are supported. To fix this error, user can remove the module definitions in the top level
netlist to proceed. In other words modify the design data such that there is no non-empty ILM
module in the top netlist.

DESCRIPTION
setIlmMode -async setting will override the setAnalysisMode -async- Checks setting if there is a
conflict. The -async option of setIlmMode is set to false while the design already has the
setAnalysisMode -asyncChecks async setting so the -async false setting will be used in the ILM
flow instead.Set the -async option of setIlmMode to true if you want setAnalysisMode-asyncChecks
async to be honored.

SYNOPSIS
setIlmMode -async true conflicts with setAnalysisMode -asyncChecks noAsync setting. setIlmMode
-async true will be used in the ILM flow.

DESCRIPTION
setIlmMode -async setting will override the setAnalysis -asyncChecks setting if there is a
conflict.The -async option of setIlmMode is set to true while the design already has the
setAnalysisMode -asyncChecks noAsync setting so the -async true setting will be used in the ILM
flow instead.Set the -async option of setIlmMode to false if you want set- Analysis-asyncChecks
noAsync to be honored.

SYNOPSIS
SI data will not be generated in this run since extraction needs to be done in postRoute mode. To
enable SI data creation, invoke SI aware optimization and then rerun createInterfaceLogic.

DESCRIPTION
createInterfaceLogic will not generate SI data since extraction needs to be done in postRoute mode
. You need to firstly enable SI aware delay calculation by "setDelayCalMode -SIAware true" ,
secondly make sure coupling is present and perform postroute timing analysis with "timeDesign -
postRoute" , then SI data could be generated by createIn- terfaceLogic.

SYNOPSIS
Command '%s' is not supported in unflattened state. Use the 'flattenIlm' command to put the design
in flattened state before calling this command.

DESCRIPTION
This error message is seen while using ILMs in toplevel without flat- tening ILMs and any timing
and/or optimization commands are executed.
eg., **ERROR: (ENCILM-380): Command 'createClockTreeSpec' is not sup- ported in unflattened
state. Please use the 'flattenIlm' command to put the design in flattened state, before calling this
command.
Here, the the user tried to execute the command "createClockTreeSpec" before flattening the ILMs.
All super commands such as optDesign, timeDesign, clockDesign etc., automatically take care of
flattening and upon completion, leave the design in an unflattened state.
All other timing/optimization commands require you to run flattenIlm first so that the nets and
instances internal to ILM are exposed to the timing engine.
You can refer to the ILM usage details in Encounter System User Guide.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
Interactive constraint is allowed only in flattened state of design. Specified interactive constraint '%s'
would be lost.

DESCRIPTION
Why does EDI System issue the above error message when I enter interac- tive constraints such as
set_timing_derate? How can one avoid this error? In general, for ILMs constraints are supported
through create_con- straint_mode / update_constraint_mode specified in your mmmc setup. You
may refer to our Foundation Flow scripts for detailed information. If specified interactively, they
could only be done so in flattened mode and would be discarded in unflattened mode. However, the
best way to specify your constraints is upfront through the above MMMC constructs and binded to -
ilm_sdc_file argument, and they would thus be read auto- matically in the flow. If there are
constraints that you need to spec- ify which could not be done in an SDC file (e.g. setTimingDerate,
group_path), then you need to provide them through setIlmNonSdc- ConstraintFile <fileName>.
You cannot specify the interactive constraints when ILMs are not flat- tened (unflattenIlm).In the
flatten mode (flattenIlm), you can specify both interactive and modeless constraints and these
constraints are used during various cycles of unflattenIlm to flattenIlm. During saveDesign, these
constraints are honored.
To specify additional constraints while running unflattenIlm, set the following:
set_global timing_defer_mmmc_object_updates true set_interactive_constraint_modes
[all_constraint_modes -active|or your_own_list_of_modes] foreach mode
{list_of_modes_to_be_updated} {update_constraint_modes -name $mode -ilm_sdc_files [concat
get_constraint_modes -name $mode -ilm_sdc_files] addi- tional.sdc] }
Include all modeless constraints such as timing_derates and group_path in a separate file, and run:

NAME
ENCILM-548

SYNOPSIS
'%s' is not supported in flattened ILM state. Internally EDI will unflatten the ILMs in the design and
will flatten them back before exiting the command. To improve run time, unflattenIlm command
should be called explicitly for a group of commands that do not work in flat- tened state.

DESCRIPTION
When -keepFlatten option of setIlmMode is set to true, for non-related timing commands EDI will
automatically unflatten the design, run the command, and flatten the design back. However it may
take more run time if EDI run unflattenIlm/flattenIlm for each non-related timing command. It is
recommended that the user explicitly runs unflattenIlm for a group of commands that do not work in
flattened mode to improve run time.
Example: # At top-level design, verify the design after the design has been optimized
... ... timeDesign -signoff -reportOnly -outDir RPT timeDesign -signoff -reportOnly -hold -outDir RPT
unflattenIlm summaryReport -outDir RPT verifyConnectivity -noAntenna verifyGeometry

NAME
ENCLF-200

SYNOPSIS
Pin '%s' in macro '%s' has no ANTENNAGATEAREA value defined. The library data is incomplete
and some process antenna rules will not be checked correctly.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is triggered when the technology data has process antenna rules, and a signal pin is
missing process antenna data needed to check the rules. In this case, a signal pin that is either an
input or inout pin is missing the gate-area data.
In CMOS, every signal pin that is an input or inout pin connects to a transistor gate. If there is no
gate-area associated with this pin, then the library data is incomplete and process antenna rules
cannot be checked for this pin correctly. The router and verification commands will assume this pin
has no transistor gate attached, and therefore does not need to be protected from process antenna
violations, which may result in real violations that are not fixed by the router or seen by the
verification commands.
The best way to avoid this warning is to add the correct antenna gate- area data to the library data.
You can also use the suppressMessage command to turn off this warning message. This might be
appropriate if you know the only library cells without antenna data are already protected by internal
diode cells (e.g. some blocks might be built this way). In that case, you would lose the possible
benefit of those internal diode cells for any nets connected to the block input, which might cause the
router to add some unnecessary diode cells to protect other inputs attached to the same net. This is
somewhat dangerous, because you might suppress messages for pins that are not protected.
You can also turn off the warning if you believe antenna errors are rare for these pins in practice,
and you will depend on final sign-off physical verification tools to find any errors, and repair them
manu- ally.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
Pin '%s' in macro '%s' has no ANTENNADIFFAREA value defined. The library data is incomplete
and some process antenna rules will not be checked correctly.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is triggered when the technology data has process antenna rules, and a signal pin is
missing process antenna data needed to check the rules. In this case, a signal pin that is either an
output or inout pin is missing the diffusion-area data.
In CMOS, every signal pin that is an output or inout pin connects to a transistor diffusion. If there is
no diffusion-area associated with this pin, then the library data is incomplete and process antenna
rules cannot be checked for this pin correctly. In that case, the router may try to protect other input
pins connected to the same net with extra routing and vias ('layer-hopping'), or add extra diode cells
to avoid 'false' antenna violations. The verification commands may flag false violations also.
The best way to avoid this warning is to add the correct antenna diffu- sion-area data to the library
data.
You can also use the suppressMessage command to turn off this warning message. This might be
appropriate if you know that antenna violations are rare in this technology, and you are willing to
tolerate some extra layer-hopping, or extra diode cells that are not really necessary.
The following example shows the definition of antenna gate area in a LEF PIN statement:
MACRO AND2 CLASS CORE; SIZE 0.90 BY 1.114 ; SYMETRY X Y ; SITE CORE ; PIN A1
DIRECTION INPUT ; ANTENNADIFFAREA 0.008320 ; #antenna diff area in um^2 PORT LAYER

domain's primary power/ground net. Or connecting always-on buffer's secondary power pin to its
driving instance's power pin. Or connecting level shifter's input and output power pin according to
its driving and receiving power domain. As long as the power domain, primary pg net and iso/shifter
rules are properly defined in the power intent file,Encounter can derive the pg connection
automatically. Explicit pg connection are necessary when there is no way for the tool to derive
connection from the power intent file. For example, the pg pins of an analog block. In this case,user
needs to add explicit pg connection, such as 'create_global_connection'command.

DESCRIPTION
Effective power domain of input and output of the specified isolation instance is the same.
Most Likely Cause: (1) Redundant isolation is added (2) Isolation cell's power connection changed

So the fanin is U_TOP_ANALOG/sul_iso_core2ana not U_TOP_ANALOG/sul_iso_core2io
specified in the UPF rule.
It means the connectivity in the Verilog doesn't match the rule in the UPF.

SYNOPSIS
OpenAccess (OA) shared library installation is older than the one that was used to build this %s
version. For using the OA installation built and tested with this %s version, unset the shell variable
OA_HOME. For using '%s' or higher version of OA, reset OA_HOME to point to that installation.

DESCRIPTION
These errors are only reported when you point to an OpenAccess (OA) installation which is older
than the EDI version was built with. By default, EDI will use the OA version in the EDI installation
unless the environ- ment variable OA_HOME is set to point to another OA installation. To resolve
this issue, the recommendation is to use 'unsetenv OA_HOME' so EDI will use the local OA
installation. Alternatively, set OA_HOME to a compatible OA installation.
OA versions are signified using three sets of numbers separated by a period (i.e. XX.YY.ZZZ) or
sometimes the third number is separated with a dash (i.e. XX.YY-ZZZ). OA versions are compatible
if the first two sets of numbers are the same.
To determine what OA version an IC610 or EDI installation was compiled with by going to
http://downloads.cadence.com and clicking on the README or README.OA file. This is listed next
to each release.
Overall, Cadence recommends you run your application with the version of OA that it was built,
tested and shipped with. Otherwise, unforeseen com- patibility issues may arise.
For example, any 22.04.abc version is compatible with any other 22.04.xyz version.

Found busBit terminals of bus '%s' of cell '%s' without bus ordering information in OA library '%s'.
This may lead to problems during saveDesign. It is recommended to run verilogAnnotate on the

DESCRIPTION
The issue occurs because the bus ordering information for cell's bus- Bit terminals is not present.
The OA libraries were created using lef2oa. LEF file contains no infor- mation about bus order of
busBit terminals. When using EDI System with OpenAccess, the bus ordering information must be
annotated into the abstract using the verilogAnnotate utility. To run verilogAnnotate for the cell to
update the existing OpenAccess data with terminal ordering information from a Verilog file.

For example: restoreDesign -cellview {lib cell view}
# If you only have the top level design netlist but no this cell's netlist, you need to generate

saveNetlist leafOnly.v -onlyLeafCell
# Make sure you have write permission to update the OA file

SYNOPSIS
Cannot open OA library '%s'. Make sure the library exists on disk and its entry is present correctly in

DESCRIPTION
Why do I receive the error above when importing my design into EDI Sys- tem?
This error indicates EDI System is unable to find an OpenAccess (OA) library.
For example, if your .globals file defines:
set init_oa_ref_lib {oaLib1 oaLib2}
But your cds.lib (or lib.defs) file only defines oaLib1:
DEFINE oaLib1 ./oaLib1
Correct this by removing the reference for oaLib2 or specifying the path to oaLib2 in your cds.lib file:
DEFINE oaLib1 ./oaLib1 DEFINE oaLib2 ./oaLib2
Also, make sure you are not confusing the syntax for the cds.lib file and the lib.defs file. We
recommend using a cds.lib file. Its syntax is:
DEFINE libName libPath
If the error is preceded by the following warning then there is not a cds.lib file in the run directory to
define the location of the libraries:

DESCRIPTION
Virtuoso and OA allow creation of hierarchical properties. For instance, value of a hierarchical

on a object in OA. "Multi-level tree like properties" are not supported and hence not read.
Example:
If the following setting is used, these properties are preserved on the original object, so when the
design is saved in EDI, these properties are not lost :

DEF file and look for vias in the VIAS section that are defined using the + RECT syntax instead of +
VIARULE syntax.
If the vias cannot be represented by standard vias then a new custom via must be created which
requires writing to a technology file. Therefore, you must have write permissions or allowed to do an
incremental update of the tech- nology library.
Since the technology database needs to be incrementally updated, the recommended method is to
create local technology database in design library either using 'createLib -referenceTech' or
'setOaxMode -libCreateMode reference' option. For example:
createLib myLib -referenceTech myRefLib
set init_oa_design_lib myLib
Or
setOaxMode -libCreateMode reference

ENCOAX-618

Then define the place and route technology rules in myRefLib by import- ing a technology LEF.
This creates a local technology database in the design library that can be modified incrementally.
Overall, when setting up your mixed-signal design environment we recommend using a Base PDK
which contains the base techfile and an incremental technology database (ITDB) which references
the Base PDK. The ITDB contains the information for physical design and can be updated, while
the Base PDK can remain read-only.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
Unable to find module terminal '%s' for module '%s' in '%s/%s/%s'. Con- nectivity cannot be
maintained if the terminal does not exist for mod- ule.

DESCRIPTION
Possible reason can be - If the design is re-mastered from abstract views that were used by
Encounter and layout views that can be used by verifica- tion tools, the re-mastered view does not
have any terminals. The oaOut -noConnec- tivity option must be specified to be able to save the
database. As the database will not have connectivity information it will not be able to be reloaded if
no connectivity exists in the cellview that was written. A cellview cre- ated using the -noConnectivity
option is designed to be used with verification tools that do not need the OpenAccess database to
contain connectivity informa- tion.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
Cannot find definition of BUS Term '%s' of Cell '%s' in reference library. This could lead to further
errors while saving the OA database. Possible reasons could be that verilogAnnotate was not run
on the OA reference library that has the definition for this cell. Either run verilogAnnotate on the
reference library to fix this problem or use command 'setOaxMode -allowBitConnection true' before
saving design to make bitwise connection of terminals.

DESCRIPTION
The message is issued when saving a design to OpenAccess (OA) by run- ning saveDesign. The
OA libraries were created using lef2oa. When using EDI System with OpenAccess, the bus pin
order must be anno- tated into the abstract using the verilogAnnotate utility. This step is done after
importing the LEF macro data and prior to running saveDesign in EDI System. Failure to complete
this step on macros with the bus pins causes EDI System to display this warning message.
Example:
To prevent this warning, a Verilog stub file is needed for each macro with bus pins. This might be
derived from the symbol view using the Create-Cel- lview-From Cellview menu command. Once
you have a stub file for each macro which has bus pins run verilogAnnotate at the Linux command
line using the following steps:
$CDSHOME/share/oa/bin/verilogAnnotate .br
-refLibs reference_library_name .br
-verilog stub.v
where, stub.v contains the module definitions with only port list, input/output direction and bus
definitions of the referenced blocks.

SYNOPSIS
Macro '%s' has no SITE statement and it is a class CORE macro that requires a SITE statement.
The SITE %s is chosen because it is a core site with height %.4f that matches the macro SIZE
height.

DESCRIPTION
This message indicates this cell is defined with CLASS CORE which means it is a standard cell.
Standard cells require a SITE to be defined for them. In a floorplan, rows are created which are
made of SITES which define the placement grid for standard cells. The placer must know what
SITE each standard cell is allowed to use. If a SITE is not defined for a standard cell EDI System
will try to find a SITE with the same height and use that. To specify the correct SITE, open the
Abstract view in Virtuoso and display the cells proper- ties. At the bottom of the Attributes it will have
Site Definition where you can select the cor- rect site. If you created your Open Access (OA) library
from LEF you can add the SITE name to the MACRO definition and re-import the LEF into OA.

NAME
ENCOAX-773

SYNOPSIS
Pin '%s' in macro '%s' has no ANTENNAGATEAREA value defined. The library data is incomplete
and some process antenna rules will not be checked correctly.

DESCRIPTION
This warning is triggered when the technology data has process antenna rules, and a signal pin is
missing process antenna data needed to check the rules. In this case, a signal pin that is either an
input or inout pin is missing the gate-area data.
In CMOS, every signal pin that is an input or inout pin connects to a transistor gate. If there is no
gate-area associated with this pin, then the library data is incomplete and process antenna rules
cannot be checked for this pin correctly. The router and verification commands will assume this pin
has no transistor gate attached, and therefore does not need to be protected from process antenna
violations, which may result in real violations that are not fixed by the router or seen by the
verification commands.
The best way to avoid this warning is to add the correct antenna gate- area data to the library data.
You can also use the suppressMessage command to turn off this warning message. This might be
appropriate if you know the only library cells without antenna data are already protected by internal
diode cells (e.g. some blocks might be built this way). In that case, you would lose the possible
benefit of those internal diode cells for any nets connected to the block input, which might cause the
router to add some unnecessary diode cells to protect other inputs attached to the same net. This is
somewhat dangerous, because you might suppress messages for pins that are not protected.
You can also turn off the warning if you believe antenna errors are rare for these pins in practice,
and you will depend on final sign-off physical verification tools to find any errors, and repair them
manually.

Pin '%s' in macro '%s' has no ANTENNADIFFAREA value defined. The library data is incomplete

DESCRIPTION
This warning is triggered when the technology data has process antenna rules, and a signal pin is
missing process antenna data needed to check the rules. In this case, a signal pin that is either an
output or inout pin is missing the diffusion-area data.
In CMOS, every signal pin that is an output or inout pin connects to a transistor diffusion. If there is
no diffusion-area associated with this pin, then the library data is incomplete and process antenna
rules cannot be checked for this pin correctly. In that case, the router may try to protect other input
pins connected to the same net with extra routing and vias ('layer-hopping'), or add extra diode cells
to avoid 'false' antenna violations. The verification commands may flag false violations also.
The best way to avoid this warning is to add the correct antenna diffu- sion-area data to the library
data.
You can also use the suppressMessage command to turn off this warning message. This might be
appropriate if you know that antenna violations are rare in this technology, and you are willing to
tolerate some extra layer-hopping, or extra diode cells that are not really necessary.

DESCRIPTION
While reading an OpenAccess database into Encounter from the layout in Virtuoso, user gets the
above error with the oaIn command and is unable to load the OpenAccess database into

The error is stating that the PRBoundary object is not present in the OpenAccess database.
In order to resolve this, user needs to add the PRBoundary object. Adding a shape on
prBoundary:boundary LPP (layer purpose pair) to the layout does not work, the boundary must be
the correct object type.
User needs to add it interactively through this Virtuoso menu command in the layout.

DESCRIPTION
When text information is attached to pin shapes, a warning like the following will appear.
**WARN: (ENCOAX-923): Found shape with unsupported type 'AttrDisplay' in the OA database.
The shape has bounding box co-ordinates from (1063.911,1022.813) to (1064.826,1029.3) and it is
lying on layer 'PIN'. In non-update mode these shapes will be lost in round trip. However, in update
mode these shapes will be preserved in the OA database.
First, follow all the settings required for Virtuoso and EDI System interoperability as explained in the
Mixed-Signal Interoperability Guide. For this specific message make sure "setOaxMode -
updateMode true" is set.
The reason in this case for the "**WARN: (ENCOAX-923):" is that shapes with unsupported types
like "AttrDisplay", "Arc", "Dot" and "Line" are not read in OA DB. These object types should not be
used in OA DB intended for interoperability with EDI System.

DESCRIPTION
The error above is reported when importing an OA design from Virtuoso to Encounter that contains
Pcells. When I open the design in Encounter the Pcells are not the proper size. What setup is
required to transfer the Pcells properly?
Prior to saving the design to OA in Virtuoso, make sure the following is done:
1. At the Linux prompt set the following:
setenv CDS_ENABLE_EXP_PCELL true
setenv CDS_EXP_PCELL_DIR ./.expressPcells
2. Invoke Virtuoso and open the design. Note in Virtuoso versions before IC6.1.4.500.1 VLS-XL or
VLS-GXL is required to save the express PCell cache. In IC6.1.4.500.1 and later version all
Virtuoso products support this.
3. Select Tools->Express Pcell Manager. Fill out all the details and Enable Caching of the Pcells
check box with Auto Save option. Press Save Copy to save the Pcell Layout Cache. This step is
necessary to enable inter-opera- tion of the data between Encounter and Virtuoso.
4. Save the design to OA and exit Virtuoso.

NAME
ENCOAX-956

SYNOPSIS
While annotating the placement data from %s/%s/%s, the logical instance '%s' was not found in the
OA design. One reason for this could be that logical netlist data read during init_design is different
from the OA cellview's embedded module hierarchy (EMH) data created from a previ- ously read
OA design. The OA database used to read physical information should be consistent with the
verilog file or the OA database used for reading logical netlist.

DESCRIPTION
This message comes when any instance being read from OA during oaIn process is not present in
FEDB.
If you are planning to merge floorplan data from OA to encounter or incrementally loading the
floorplan data then oaIn has a new option "-filter {boundary pin_shapes}" that tells EDI to read only
the information specified, and ignore any mismatches. So for example, if you used -filter
pin_shapes, any existing pin shapes would be replaced by the ones read from the OA cellview.
Please refer the docu- mentation for more details.
If you are using a prior version than EDI 13.2 , the -filter option isn't available and a workaround is
required:
1)load the config file in EDI. 2)save OA design 3)Load the design in Virtuoso Layout-XL 4)File-
>Load Physical View (Be sure to load the pins in "update" mode) 5)Save the new/updated design
6)Restore this design in EDI and continue with the P&R flow.

SYNOPSIS
Allowing saveDesign to create OpenAccess based reference library data on-the-fly is not
recommended.

DESCRIPTION
Allowing saveDesign to create OpenAccess based reference library data (FEOAreflib) on-the-fly
can result in multiple copies of reference library information as well as increase the run time of the
saveDesign process. Externally translating the LEF information into OpenAccess reference libraries
is recommended using lef2oa/verilogAnnotate or LEF-to-OA migration scripts.

SYNOPSIS
Terminal %s is not on the interface of cell %s, the OpenAccess cellview terminal's isInterface bit is
set to false. Logical connectivity of this terminal to corresponding net may get lost upon reading the
data. In order to fix the problem, recreate the reference libraries with interface bit set for this terminal.

DESCRIPTION
The issue occurs because the mentioned bit is not on the interface of the cell. The isInterface bit is
meant to align to the Verilog modules. So, if a OA abstract terminal has isInterface = nil, that means
that it should not appear in the Verilog netlist when running saveNetlist unless the -
includePowerGround or -phys options are used. Terminals with isInterface = nil should only be
connected to a USE POWER/GROUND net, not a regular signal net. Assuming that the Verilog
module (and .lib) has port, then running verilogAnnotate will set the bit on the abstract's terminal to
true instead of nil.
To run verilogAnnotate :
verilogAnnotate -refLibs libraryList -verilog fileList [Optional Arguments]
Example:
restoreDesign -cellview {lib cell view}
# If you only have the top level design netlist but no this cell's netlist, you need to generate
leafOnly.v.
saveNetlist leafOnly.v -onlyLeafCell
# Make sure you have write permission to update the OA file

NAME
ENCOAX-1307

SYNOPSIS
Via definition for std via '%s' is not found in the OA technology database associated with the design.
Possible reason could be that this design has been read or created using a different OA technology
database or LEF and these two database are out of sync. This serious issue should be fixed before
proceeding further. To save the design, %s is creating custom via definition in current OA
technology database for the std via '%s'.

DESCRIPTION
If a VIA in the EDI System database is parameterized and refers to a LEF rule VIARULE ..
GENERATE, then oaOut will expect a matching (by name) oaStd- ViaDef to use for the
parameterized via. If the oaStdViaDef is not found, then a fixed via (oaCustomViaDef) will be
created instead which means that the parameterized form is lost in the roundtrip (oaOut -> OA ->
oaIn).
If the creation succeeds and the user doesn't need the Vias remain parameterized, the message
can be ignored.
If the user would want to have the Vias remain parameterized, they should compare their
"technology" data to see why the oaStdViaDef name does not match the LEF VIARULE
GENERATE name.

SYNOPSIS
The library '%s' has its data compression level set to '%d', while the compression level for this
encounter session is %d. Any new data being saved into this library will be saved with its
compression settings, irrespective of the global value.

DESCRIPTION
When user brings a design from virtuoso and save it in encounter, tool gives following warning
message:
In OpenAccess data model 4, you have an option to compress the library and save it. By default,
virtuoso saves design in uncompressed mode, whereas, encounter saves in compressed mode. So
when you open a design initialized in vir- tuoso and save it in encounter, you will get this warning
message.To change com- pression level in encounter use command
setOaxMode -compressLevel 0
Virtuoso IC 616 and Encounter 11.1 and above can read and save com- pressed design library.
However, IC 615 cannot handle the compressed design. Therefore you need to run oazip -
decompress before restoring compressed design in virtuoso 615.

SYNOPSIS
The tech graph in '%s' is different from the library '%s' which was used to create the %s technology
information. This can result in prob- lems during the save process if the vias, layer rules, etc are
differ- ent in the two cases. The simplest solution to the problem is to have the '%s' reference the
refLib of current design for tech information. To create a new library, use createLib with the -
referenceTech option.

DESCRIPTION
The technology information in the design library that the cellview is being saved into must be the
same as the original library technology that was used to create the in session technology
information.
You need to set this library as design library so that tool understands the hierarchy library/cell/view.
To set the library as design library use following command
enc> set init_oa_design_lib "test1"
After this setting, tool will not give the warning message (ENCOAX-1625) during saveDesign.
Example:
**WARN: (ENCOAX-1625): The tech graph in 'designLibOA' is different from the library 'ref_lib'
which was used to create the Encounter technology information. This can result in problems during
the save process if the vias, layer rules, etc are different in the two cases. The simplest solution to
the problem is to have the 'designLibOA' reference the refLib of current design for tech information.
To create a new library, use createLib with the -referenceTech option.
In the globals file used to invoke the design, you have following entries

set DATA_DIR "./inputs"

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
After that you create a library called "test1", in which you will be saving the design after placement
etc.
You need to set this library as design library so that tool understands the hierarchy library/cell/view.
To set the library as design library use following command
enc> set init_oa_design_lib "test1"

SYNOPSIS
Default Rule '%s' is not found in the technology library (%s). The default rule was specified using
the global variable init_oa_default_rule, check the spelling to confirm that constraint group exists in
the technology library. Either correct the init_oa_default_rule specification or update the technology
library to contain a valid LEFDefaultRouteSpec.

DESCRIPTION
This error is caused by a missing LEFDefaultRouteSpec or not properly referencing the library
which defines the LEFDefaultRouteSpec. To debug this do the following.
First, use Virtuoso to output an ascii version of the technology file from the ITDB (techLoadDump -d
gsclib090 output.ascii). It should contain a LEFDefaultRouteSpec constraint group as shown below.
This defines the rules for physical design:
;( group [override] )
;( ----- ---------- )
( "LEFDefaultRouteSpec" nil
spacings(
( minWidth "Cont" 0.12 )
) ;spacings

below:
controls(
techVersion("1.0")
refTechLibs(
; techLibName
; -----------
"gpdk090"

SYNOPSIS
No usable buffer and inverter has been found. At least one of them have to.

DESCRIPTION
You should check if the buffer(s)/inverter(s) are available in the tim- ing libraries. If yes ensure
footprint and function of buffer(s)/inverter(s) are defined properly in the library. To make
buffer(s)/inverter(s) usable: - define buffer(s)/inverter(s) in libraries - do not set buffer(s)/inverter(s) as
dont_use, both in libraries and in constraint file(.sdc file) You can use reportDontUseCells
command to reports cells that cannot be used for timing optimization. This command also reports
the source of the timing constraint: the timing library file, timing constraint file, or the user (by
specifying the setDontUse command).
In lower power designs verify the proper power domain binding has been done as following: 1. If
your analysis views are defined in your CPF then commitCPF automatically creates delay corners
for each analysis view of the name analysis_view_dc. For example, "create_analysis_view -name
slow_PM01" will have a delay corner created named slow_PM01_dc. EDI will automatically create
the viewDefinition.tcl according to the CPF and bind the libraries to the respective delay corner and
power domain. 2. If you have defined the MMMC definitions in a viewDefinition.tcl, you must define
the complete MMMC information in the viewDefini- tion.tcl, which means that each power domain
has "update_delay_corner -power_domain" to associate the delay corner to the power domains.
There is no need to define the view in CPF.
If CPF has the views, commitCPF will create the info which viewDefini- tion.tcl does not have.
Example: In older releases you will get SOCOPT-600, SOCOPT-596, SOCOPT-3000 and
SOCOPT-3001 for ENCOPT-600, ENCOPT-596, ENCOPT-3000 and ENCOPT-3001 messages

Possible reasons are :
-The buffer insertion affects a net which cannot be optimized. You can run"reportIgnoredNets -

marked dont_touch, etc.
-The buffer insertion will change the port boundaries of a hierarchical instance which has
hierarchical port constraints set by "setOptMode -keepPort keepPortHinstFile". You can run
"getOptMode -keepPort" to see the setting.
-The default location for the added buffer is not compatible with the driver power domain. If you want
to specify the location manually, you can use the -loc option.
-There may be an existing MSV violation on the net (the driver PD is incompatible with the sink PD).

SYNOPSIS
%s : Net has unplaced terms or is connected to uplaced instances in design.

DESCRIPTION
This warning message is issued during optimization if there are nets connected to any unplaced I/O
pins or unplaced instances in the design. The unplaced instances can be reported by running
checkPlace command and unplaced I/O's can be reported by running 'checkPinAssignment -
report_violating_pin' command.Once these issues are fixed the warning message will not be
reported.

DESCRIPTION
The optDesign or timeDesign commands cannot honour "setTrialRouteMode -keepExistingRoutes
true", the reason being the design is at pre-route stage and these commands are going to re-run
trialRoute and estimate parasitics hence existing routes in the design cannot be preserved. In order

false" before running optDesign or timeDesign command or else the tool will automatically disable

DESCRIPTION
Running 'timeDesign -postRoute -si (-hold)' with 'setAnalysisMode -analysisType bcwc' might lead
to incorrect timing analysis results. This is because the SI delay push-outs (or pull-ins for -hold
mode) on the clock nets get annotated to both the launch and the capture clock paths resulting in
optimistic slacks to be reported. To get accurate timing analysis results, use 'setAnalysisMode -
analysisType onChipVari- ation', which requires the design to be run in either in multi-mode multi-
corner (MMMC) or single-mode single-corner (SMSC) mode. For more information, see the

SYNOPSIS
Option "-extractionEngine" for command setSIMode is obsolete. This option has been mapped to
the following option based on your selection of extraction engine for use in SI flow: %s Modify your
script to use the above setting instead of setSIMode -extractionEngine.

DESCRIPTION
How do I control which extractor is used to generate spef file? It seems the behavior of
setExtractRCMode -engine and -effortLevel have changed indicated by the warnings above. Using
setExtractRCMode options -engine and -effortLevel to control which extractor is used by extrac- tRC
is described below. The -engine option indicates whether to use the preRoute or postRoute
extraction engine. The -engine values default, detail and CCE are now obsolete.
Use -engine preRoute when the design has not been detail routed by NanoRoute yet. This is
equivalent to -engine default in previous ver- sions of Encounter. When -engine preRoute is set RC
extraction is done by the fast density measurements of the surrounding wires; coupling is not
reported. Use -engine postRoute after the design has been detail routed by NanoRoute.RC
extraction is done by the detailed measurement of the dis- tance to the surrounding wires; coupling
is reported. The effortLevel parameter further specifies which postroute engine is used for balanc-
ing performance versus accuracy needs.
The -effortLevel value controls which extractor is used when the postRoute engine is used.
low - Invokes the native detailed extraction engine. This is the same as specifying the -engine
postRoute setting. medium - Invokes the Turbo QRC (TQRC) extraction mode. TQRC perfor- mance
and accuracy falls between native detailed extraction and IQRC engine. This engine supports
distributed processing. TQRC engine is recommended for process nodes < 65nm. Note: This
setting does not require a QRC license. high - Invokes the Integrated QRC (IQRC) extraction
engine. IQRC provides superior accuracy compared to TQRC. IQRC is recommended for extraction

after ECO. In addition, IQRC supports distributed process- ing.Note: IQRC requires a QRC license.
signoff - Invokes the Standalone QRC extraction engine. This engine choice provides the highest
accuracy. The engine has several runModes, thereby,providing maximum flexibility.
The default value depends on the value of setDesignMode. The default for nodes above 65nm is
low. TQRC (effortLevel medium) is the default extraction engine in the postroute flow for 65 nm and
below design. However, TQRC and IQRC do not support the obsoleted 3 corner flow
(defineRCCorner flow) and require a QRCTechfile. Therefore, Native Detailed (effortLevel low)
engine remains the default engine if no QRCTechfile has been defined or if the defineRCCorner
command has been used.
Should you use Turbo QRC (tQRC) or standalone QRC?
The extraction time with tQRC is typically a small percentage of the total flow time. With standalone
QRC, the runtime would be longer. Standalone QRC requires the usage of a QRC license (tQRC
uses the EDI license). It writes out a DEF and invokes the standalone tool. It is slower than tQRC. It
is not incremental like tQRC, so the runtime impact may be high. tQRC is incremental and if
changes are small, extraction runtime drops to almost zero. The delta between standalone QRC
and tQRC in terms of accuracy is typically small, so there is usu- ally no flow advantage or end QoR
gain by doing it. Cadence's suggestion is to use TurboQRC for 65nm and below nodes in the
postRoute flow, and for signoff use standalone QRC. Note: setSIMode -extractionEngine is
obsolete and extraction during SI fixing will use the values of setExtractRCMode -engine and -
effortLevel to determine the extractor to use.

SYNOPSIS
Some of the LEF equivalent cells have different ANTENNAGATEAREA/ANTEN-
NADIFFAREA/PINS etc... attributes. They will not be swapped for fixed instances and for lefsafe
operations like optLeakagePower in postroute mode. To find out what cells are LEF equivalent use
the findLefEquiva- lentCells command.

DESCRIPTION
Due to differences between cells in the design physical library such as OBS,PINS,
ANTENNAGATE, ANTENNADIFF etc... swapping is not allowed for such instances. For more
information use the new findLefEquivalentCells command. It requires the name of a LEF cell to
check, and optionally an output file for the results:findLefEquivalentCells -cells <lib_cell> -outfile
<out_file> During normal timing optimization, optDesign will resize instances as required.Cells of
different sizes but the same function are not equiva- lent, because you cannot safely swap one for
the other without risk of overlap or other DRV.Commands like optLeakagePower, or timing
optimiza- tion on fixed instances, will attempt what is known as "lefsafe" swap- ping, where you
replace one cell with another of the same size, pin geometry, antenna gate area, etc. You can do
this postRoute without risk of overlaps or need to re-legalize the placement.If two cells have the
same function and size but are not lefsafe,findLefEquivalentCells will explain why.
Example: findLefEquivalentCells -cells INVXL -outfile myfile -------------------------------------------------------
------- LEF Equivalent cells { INVXL } Non-LEF Equivalent cells of same size but different pin
geometries { INVX1 } -------------------------------------------------------------- findLefEquivalentCells -cells

SYNOPSIS
Option -chainByInstances of command addPowerSwitch will become obsolete in the next major
release as same option function is now available under command rechainPowerSwitch -
chainByInstances. The obsolete option still works in this release, but to avoid this warning and to
ensure compatibility with future release, update the scripts to use the command
rechainPowerSwitch-chainByInstances.

DESCRIPTION
The power switch enable net chain and unchain feature options were pre- viously made available
using addPowerSwitch command. But later this functionality was moved to new command
rechainPowerSwitch.So its recom- mended for user to use the feature with rechainPowerSwitch
command

SYNOPSIS
Pin %s of abutted partition %s could not be assigned. Could not find a feasible slot for the pin.
Create more feasible location before for pin assignment by inserting feedthrough buffers using
insertPtnFeedthrough command or allowing more layers for assigning pins or using setPinAs-
signMode -strict_abutment false for relaxing this check.

DESCRIPTION
In order to resolve this issue, do the following before pin assign- ment:#1 In abutted designs, pins of
following type can not be placed on common edges between two adjoining partitions. A. Pins of net
not con- nected to adjacent partition (fences of the two partitions being con- nected are not touching
each other in floorplan). B. Pins of nets hav- ing connections to two or more partitions any pin
belonging to net of above type will have to route over an unconnected partition and result in illegal
routing. Feedthrough step is required to get rid of pins which connect non-adjacent partitions or
multiple partitions, by chang- ing netlist and making all pins connect to only one pin on adjacent
partition to make the routing of net feasible/legal #2. Create addi- tional location for pins A. By
removing blockages b. By removing PG stripes c. Allow more layers for pin assignment i. By using
the definePartition command to allow more layers ii. By choosing higher layer for
setPinAssignMode -maxLayer #3. Use setPinAssignMode -strict_abutment false to relax abutment
violations checks for placing multi partition pin of a net and non neighbor pins of a net on abutted
edges. Example: -------- eg. if pins are not assigned for a net which has more than two partition pins
to connect use insertPtnFeedthrough command to change netlist to have new nets added and older
net modified in way that, now nets only connect two pins of adjacent partitions only.

DESCRIPTION
This warning message is issued while assigning pins on a partition using the EDI GUI with Partition
=> Assign Pin... or when using the assignPtnPin Tcl command. 0he floorplan likely contains a
problem with routing tracks and/or pin layer definitions. The problem can be debugged graphically
using: Partition => Specify Partition Select the offending partition and review the Partition Pin Layer
Used section. Make sure the layers defined for pins are included in the Layers Reserved For
Partition. Corrections may be made and applied with this form. check the min max layer allowed
though getPinAssignMode another reason could be presence of route blockage or PG on partition
edge blocking the routing tracks. Next, confirm there are preferred routing tracks defined for the pin
layers using the Layer Control => Track => Pref Track and the Wire&Via layer defined for the pins. If
the tracks are incorrect, they may be regenerated using the "generateTracks" Tcl command.

%s is not defined on cut layer "%s" in the technology LEF. VIARULE GEN- ERATE values will be
used instead. The generated vias, using the VIARULE GENERATE values, are probably not
optimal for signal routing and pin access.

DESCRIPTION
This command requires correct enclosure rules to auto-generate correct vias. This warning reports
that enclosure rules are not defined on the layer and/or for the cut class, so the cut enclosure values
in the VIARULE GENERATE statement will be used. This is not recommended usage except for
old LEF technology files (LEF version 5.5 and older), because the VIARULE values are often larger
than the DRC rules require, which will cause the vias to be too large. Routing results with these
vias will likely be more congested and produce longer wires. Check the LAYER section of the
technology LEF (the first file listed in the init_lef_file variable), to ensure enclosure rules are defined
cor- rectly.Please note: the ENCLOSURE rule is used by generateVias, not ENCLOSUREEDGE
rule. You can look at the LEF manual to find the correct syntax. Example: **WARN: (ENCRM-143):

Command 'generateVias' is normally used for debugging and testing. The vias are only generated
in this EDI session, and will not be kept dur- ing save/restore for nanoroute to use the next time. Use
'setGenerate- ViaMode Cauto true' before 'init_design' or 'restoreDesign' if you want generated vias
to be used by nanoroute in later EDI sessions.

DESCRIPTION
Command 'generateVias' can generate all the vias for signal routing automatically, including single
cut vias, double cut vias, MAR vias, and even DFM vias. It is used in the EDI flow, to help insure
good routing results. Users don't need to manually create vias to meet the complex rules in the tech
LEF, 'genereateVias' will consider the rules (including non-default rules) and create the vias
needed for routing. Since the vias are only generated in current EDI session, and will not be kept
during save/restore for NanoRoute to use the next time, this command is only used for debugging
and testing. The standard usage flow is to set 'setGenerateViaMode -auto true' before 'init_design'
or 'restoreDesign'. It will call 'generateVias' whenever the design is initialized or restored in
encounter. This mode option setting can be saved in database by saveDesign. You can get more
information about 'setGenerateViaMode' by 'man setGenerateViaMode'.

NAME

SYNOPSIS
Unable to trace scan chain "%s". Check the information during tracing.

DESCRIPTION
Possible reason for scan trace failure is that instance in the scan chain has multiple corresponding
pins for scan tracing.
How to solve the problem:
1. Use a Scan DEF file to define the exact instance pins scanTrace should trace through. Most
modern synthesis tools can export a Scan DEF file which can then be imported into EDI System
using the defIn command: defIn scanchain.def
2. If the design contains bidirectional pads, try defining the start/stop points of the scan chain on the
core side of the pad so the tracer does not have to trace through the pad.
3. If instances in the scan chain has complex logic, set "setScanRor- derMode -compLogic true"
before scanTrace.
Example: -------- If the message is preceded with the following warnings: **WARN: (ENCSC-1020):
Instance's output pin "reg_1/Z" (Cell "DFFX12") has multiple corresponding input pins for scan
tracing. Please either specify the instance in the DEF scanchain, or use "setScanReorderMode -
compLogic true". Otherwise scan trace may not succeed.
Then set setScanRorderMode -compLogic true prior to scan tracing. This will enable an advanced
algorithm for tracing complex logic (gates with multiple inputs)

SYNOPSIS
In scan chain "%s" DEF ordered section, buffers or logics following scan instance "%s" are
corrected to match the netlist. Check and modify your input scan DEF to avoid such message.

DESCRIPTION
This message is generated when the original SCAN DEF does not match the design netlist. One
possible reason this may happen is because of an ECO operation which adds a buffer to a scan
chain for hold fixing.
Example -------- Sample SCAN DEF (excerpt) : ... ... u1/u2/u3/reg_0_6 ( IN SI ) ( OUT Q )
u1/u2/u3/reg_0_7 ( IN SI ) ( OUT Q ) u1/u2/u3/reg_0_8 ( IN SI ) ( OUT Q ) ...
Adding a buffer between reg_0_7 and reg_0_8 (to possibly fix a hold violation) will generate the
above message.

NAME
ENCSP-362

SYNOPSIS
Site '%s' has '%s'std.Cell height, so ignoring its X-symmetry.

DESCRIPTION
In a floorplan with flipped rows, with supply followpins being shared between rows, the cells of a
single (or odd multiple) row height can- not be flipped in Y-direction, as that would cause power to
short with ground. As a result, the techSite needs to be defined with only symmetry Y, and must not
have symmetry X - allowing cells to be flipped around Y axis (R0->MY), but not X axis (R0->MX).
This message is reported when a core site definition includes the sym- metry X which is typically
not intended. SYMMETRY X means the site is symmetric about the x axis. This means that N and
FS sites are equivalent, and FN and S site are equivalent. A macro with an orientation of N matches
N or FS rows. Typically, this is not intended because it would allow the power rails to not align (i.e.
the cell would be allowed to flip so a VDD rail aligns with a VSS rail). Typically, only time X
symmetry might be used for a site is with double height cells. This message simply is indicating that
Encounter does not believe the X symmetry was intended and therefore ignoring it. To avoid this
message remove the X symmetry from the site. For more information on defining symmetry, please
refer to the "LEF language reference" manual.
Example: -------- Example site definition that causes this warning : -----------------------------------------------

SYNOPSIS
Design has inst(s) with SITE '%s', but the floorplan has no rows defined for this site. Any locations
found for such insts will be ille- gal; create rows for this site to avoid this.

DESCRIPTION
This warning will be reported by commands such as checkFPlan and placeDesign when the
floorplan does not contain any rows for the specified site. Each standard cell in the LEF should
have a SITE defined for it. Instances of this cell can only be placed in rows defined for this site.
Example: -------- Run the following command(replace RAM_site with your specific site name) to
report the instances which use this site:
dbGet [dbGet -p3 top.insts.cell.site.name RAM_site].name
When you create the initial floorplan, it should automatically create rows for the standard cells
defined in the netlist. You can add additional rows using Floorplan - Row - Create Core Row or
using the createRow text command. If this warning is occurring on standard cells you must define
rows for them or else they will not be placed.
If this problem occurs for hard macros such as memories you can ignore it. Rows are not required
by the hard macros. Remove the SITE definition in the LEF for the hard macros to avoid this
message for them.
If this occurs for IO pads you can also ignore it. Rows for IO pads are optional. You can create IO
rows using Floorplan - Row - Create I/O Row or using the createIoRow text command.

DESCRIPTION
A floorplan object's basic site is usually the smallest site of all instances to be placed within that
object.
Here, a floorplan object can be a power-domain, a partition, or the entire core of a top-level or block
design.
There should be at least one row of the basic site in a given floorplan object; while other rows can
be of sites whose dimensions are integer multiples of those of its basic site.
In this case, the floorplan object has no rows of its basic site. Thus, instances of the cells using the
basic site will find no legal location within the confines of this floorplan object.

NAME
ENCSP-2020

SYNOPSIS
Cannot find a legal location for instance '%s' (Cell %s).

DESCRIPTION
Possible reasons are: 1. Width of instance's cell is too large for the dense power stripes' pitch. Make
sure that stripe's layer is not being treated as obstruction -setPrerouteAsObs setting may need a
change. 2. Floor- plan rows are created incorrectly, making rows for this instance's cell not be
placeable. Check correct basic site is set in floorplan creation. 3. Power/Ground followpin pre-
routes do not match rows' orientations. Either re-create the rows, or re-route followpin wires.
This will cause Run time issues during detail placement step called by placeDesign or refinePlace.
Example: -------- This issue can be seen when there is a problem with globalNetConnects. If the
power/ground pins are not properly connected to the rail, then the rail appears as obstruction and
the cells cannot be legalized. The issue can be fixed by having proper orientation of rows in the
floor-plan and by [having] or re-routing follow pin wires matching row orientation.
For example, M2 followpin width is too large which causes spacing vio- lations with M2 pins/obs of
certain cells no matter where these cells are placed. This causes long runtimes during legalization
and the resulting placement will not be illegal. In order to debug this turn off DRC checking dur- ing
placeDesign or refinePlace using setPlaceMode -checkCellDRCFromPreRoute false. Once design
is placed turn on DRC checking, run checkPlace and look for DRC violations on these cells
between M2 pins/obs and follow pin. Correct the follow pin routing to make sure the DRC violations
are gone between cells and fol- low pin. Rerun placeDesign/refinePlace again for legalized
placement.
Check for verifyGeometry for Std. cell check and make sure your Std. cell is in Sync. with Tech file,
to avoid legalization issues.

NAME
ENCSP-5101

SYNOPSIS
The design must be completely placed before adding filler cell(s).

DESCRIPTION
When running addFiller the warnings or error above are issued. When addFiller runs it checks
whether the entire design is placed or not. If it is not, you will see this messages. When user would
like to work on floorplan and want to run DRC checks on it in PVS or other tool, you may like to fill
all the entire row area with fillers instead of running an entire place- ment.
If user receive the ENCSP-5101 warning it will still fill the rows with filler cells. It is simply warning
you that the design is not entirely placed with below warnings. **WARN: (ENCSP-5102): There 'are'
10 unplaced instances in the design.. OR **ERROR: (ENCSP-503): Design must be placed before
running "addFiller". If you receive the ENCSP-503 error you can still place fillers by spec- ifying the
core area.
Example: -------- addfiller -area [dbGet top.fplan.coreBox]
addfiller -area [dbGet top.fplan.coreBox]

SYNOPSIS
Global net connect rules have not been created. Added %sinsts would have no supply connectivity,
and would fail DRC.

DESCRIPTION
New instances created rely on Global-Net-Connect rules to determine which supply net to connect
the power and ground pins. With missing GNC rules, the supply pins are left unconnected. When
there are followpin stripes in design, the followpin wires will be shorting to unconnected supply pins
on the instances. These instances will fail legality checking.
One way to add GNC rules is by using command globalNetConnect. For example,
globalNetConnect VDD -type pgpin -pin VDD globalNetConnect VSS -type pgpin -pin VSS

SYNOPSIS
The specified value of -reportGap is less than the basic tech site width. You should use a value
equal to or greater than the basic tech site width to avoid this message.

DESCRIPTION
The command "checkFiller -reportGap" is used to check gaps with the specified gap size,
especially for 1 site gaps. As the placement grid is based on the tech site, the minimum -reportGap
can be set to is the tech spec site width. If the value of -reportGap is less than the basic tech site
width, then the tool will continue but will use the basic tech site width to check the gaps instead,
reporting this warning message.
Example: --------
When running 'checkFiller -reportGap 0.10' for a design whose basic tech site is 0.14 micron,
checkFiller will report this warning message and continue to check gaps using the value 0.14
instead.

pin does not connect to I/O instance or hard macro in Verilog netlist. Fix these issues and re-run
assignBump command again.

DESCRIPTION
assignBump command assigns the bumps closest to the I/O cells. For assigning I/O cells to bump,
IO pads need to be with the Class type definition "PAD AREAIO"

246.000 ; SYMMETRY x y r90 ; SITE pad ; PIN PAD PORT CLASS BUMP a?|a?|a?|a?|a?|
If the CLASS is not defined as "AREAIO" then tool will give WARN: (ENCSP-6014) warning
message. Users need to check the LEF file to make sure that CLASS type for that cell is specified
as CLASS PAD AREAIO.

SYNOPSIS
%d port%s blocked by cell or routing blockages in M%d-M%d layer. Check the design if cell or
routing blockages need be removed.

DESCRIPTION
This message indicates the pin is blocked by cell or routing blockages (obstructions) preventing
fcroute from routing to them. Zoom to the pin and observe what blockages are at the same layer as
the pin or above. The blockages need to be removed from around and on top of the pin so fcroute
can access it without creating a violation. If the pin is blocked by a routing blockage, edit the
blockage so the pin can be accessed. If it is a cell blockage, you will need to update the LEF
abstract model so the obstruction does not block the pin.

SYNOPSIS
No library found for level shifter cell '%s' with input '%f' and output '%f' volts, placed in power
domain '%s'. The first available library cell of the same name will be used, irrespective of input and
output voltages.

DESCRIPTION
Why is this message issued during timing analysis? Following are excerpts from the library
showing a level shifter and associated pins and their voltage. If a level shifter with the appropriate
volt- ages is not found the error above will be issued. At the top of the file the voltage levels are
defined using voltage_map statements:
voltage_map (VDD, 1.08); voltage_map (ExtVDD, 0.9); voltage_map (VSS, 0); voltage_map (GND,
0); voltage_map (ExtVSS, 0);
Example: -------- Within the cell definition define power pins and respective voltage names within a
pg_pin statement:
cell (LSHLX1_FROM) { is_level_shifter : "true"; level_shifter_type : "HL"; area : 0; pg_pin (VSS) {
pg_type : primary_ground; voltage_name : "VSS"; } pg_pin (VDD) { pg_type : primary_power;
std_cell_main_rail : true; voltage_name : "VDD"; } pg_pin (ExtVDD) { pg_type : backup_power;
voltage_name : "ExtVDD"; }
Lastly, define the signal_level and related power and ground pins for the input and output pins:
pin (Y) { output_signal_level : ExtVDD; direction : output; function : "A"; related_ground_pin : VSS;
related_power_pin : ExtVDD;
pin (A) { input_signal_level : VDD; direction : input; related_ground_pin : VSS; related_power_pin :
VDD;

SYNOPSIS
Ignoring the -syncRelativePath setting in the configuration file. The -syncRelativePath parameter of
the set_import_mode command is set to true in ETS by default. All relative paths in the
configuration file will be synchronized to the current working directory. To avoid this warning,
remove the syncRelativePath setting from the configuration file.

DESCRIPTION
{This warning is displayed because the ETS software ignores the -syn- cRelativePath setting in the
configuration file and uses the default value (true) for the -syncRelativePath parameter of the
set_import_mode command. When the -syncRelativePath parameter of the set_import_mode
command is set to true, all the relative paths in the configuration file are synchronized to the current
working directory. As a result, the configuration file can be loaded from any directory without chang-
ing the current working directory to the directory in which the config- uration file was saved. You can
use the set_import_mode -syncRela- tivePath false command in ETS if you do not want to
synchronize the relative paths in the configuration file to the current working direc- tory. Use this
command after invoking ETS and before reading the design. To avoid this warning, remove the -
syncRelativePath setting in the configuration file.}

SYNOPSIS
Net %s is marked as unrouteable by NanoRoute. There may be an internal error or issue with the
input data that trig- gers this net to be set as open. Please check the net objects for issues.

DESCRIPTION
If the pre route data contains issues, partial routes with FIXED vias, routes or other issues that will
cause routing problems, NanoRoute sets the Nets attribute to skip the net and routes the other nets
in the design. If the pre route is custom and complete the message can be ignored. If the preroute
needs to be completed by NanoRoute the FIXED segments and vias may need to be converted to
routed status. If you need the partial preroutes to be locked the preroutes may need to be converted
to special nets for completion by the router.
Example:
convertNetToSNet $net1
setAttribute -net $net1 skip_routing false setNanoRouteMode -routeWithEco true ecoRoute

For layer M%d, the gaps of %d out of %d tracks are narrower than %0.3fum (space %0.3f + width
%0.3f).

DESCRIPTION
0he message occurs when gaps of track(s) of a layer are narrower than minimum allowed value
(space + width) from the default routing rule. Those tracks might be initialized by a technology LEF
which has values smaller than current one. Please make sure you have loaded the correct
technology LEF or regenerate tracks to avoid this message.
0xample:0he following commands generate new routing tracks:
encounter> generateTracks
The following command generates tracks with a horizontal offset of 0.13, a horizontal pitch of 0.26,
a vertical off set of 0.14, and a vertical pitch of 0.28 on layer m2:

ENCTR-2325

NAME
ENCTR-2325

SYNOPSIS
There are %d nets connecting a pad term to a fterm without geometry and these nets will not be
routed. A pad term is a pin of a pad logically connected to a top level module port (fterm). Type 'set
trPrintIgnoredPadNets <limit>' prior to trialRoute to have it report each net up to <limit>. Review the
list of nets and verify they do not require a physical route between the pad pin and fterm. Top level
fterms connecting to pad pins typically do not require a physical route because the pad pin will con-
nect to signals external to the design.

DESCRIPTION
0his is referring to the top level ports that connect to the PAD pin of the IO pad. Since these signals
connect outside of the chip there is no port geometry to route to. For IO pins directly connected to IO
pads, EDI System implicitly considers the pin of the IO pad as an IO pin. Typically, you can ignore
this warning.
Use 'set trPrintIgnoredPadNets <limit>' prior to trialRoute to report each net up to <limit>. Review
the list of nets and verify they do not require a physical route between the pad pin and fterm. Top
level fterms connecting to pad pins typically do not require a physical route because the pad pin will
con- nect to signals external to the design.
0xample:0ou can set the following to have the warning list the nets it is ignoring:
set trPrintIgnoredPadNets 100
0t will print up to 100 nets as: PAD NET <net> is ignored.
Note:0he ignored net info can only be seen in encounter.logv file and not in the encounter.log file.

if row height reported is as expected. This can happen when the majority of the sites in the DB are
abnormal and trialRoute selects the wrong SITE type since its the majority. Either something is
wrong with your rows or something is wrong with your routing tracks. Please visually inspect both.
You can overide the site selection by setting fpSetDefaultTechSite -site CoreSite.
