Next: Example Up: .gateBridge File Format Previous: Purpose


The file begins with lines of comments beginning with a # symbol and a space. Each line of the file contains the cell names separated by an underscore `_', nodenames separated by space and the weighted critical area. For inter--layer bridge faults that may have several shorts in the same fault, semicolons separate the node lists for each short. The general format is as follows:

# cellname.gateBridge generated by Carafe of Hemlock Version Alpha.5
# faults extracted with defect radii of: radius1, ... centimicrons.
# Tech file: techfilename techfiledate
# Fab file: fabfilename fabfiledate
cell1_..._cellN node1 ... nodeN critical_area
where cellN is the cell driving nodeN and the critical_area is the critical area of the fault as found in the .pro file. cellN can also be input, which means the node is driven by a primary input.
