Name

redasc - REDAC ASCII Input Interface

Synopsis

redasc projectname [libraryfile]

Description

The redasc utility program converts layout data from Redac MAXI systems. redasc transforms layout symbols, part lists, net lists, placement information, etc. from CDI format to internal BAE DDB (Design DataBase) format.

redasc accepts the CDI file name projectname as first argument. This file must have an extension of .cdi but this extension must not be included with the command line.

redasc optionally accepts the layout library file name libraryfile as second argument. This file must have an extension of .ddb but this extension must not be included with the command line. The libraryfile is expected to be in BAE DDB (Design DataBase) format and must contain the layout part definitions referenced from the net list. The required layout library symbols are expected to be defined in the CDI file if the libraryfile argument is omitted.

redasc converts the CDI file <projectname>.cdi to a BAE DDB design file with the name <projectname>.ddb. The generated layout element is named <projectname> and contains the placed parts and the net list connectivity. redasc also generates a free list named <projectname>.fre which contains an unconnected pins report.

Diagnosis

Warnings

redasc does not convert traces from the CDI format. Use the CAM View facility to read in routing data via Gerber format to reconstruct the PCB.
