7.18 VALCONV

Bartels AutoEngineer® Documentation

Name

valconv - VALID to Bartels Conversion

Synopsis

valconv projectname

Description

The valconv utility program converts part lists and net lists from VALID format (i.e., VALID schematic output) to a BAE DDB (Design DataBase) file.

valconv accepts the BAE DDB destination file name projectname as first argument. This file is created with extension .ddb, but this extension must not be included with the command line.

valconv reads the VALID part list file pstxprt and the VALID net list file pstxnet. These files are generated by the VALID system and must reside in the current directory when calling valconv.

After successful processing, a logical (unpacked) net list will exist in the BAE DDB file named <projectname>.ddb. This internal logical net list can be converted to a physical net list with the Packager, in the same way as information from the BAE schematic. A layout element can then be created in that design file, parts placed and traces routed, and it will also be possible to perform pin and gate swaps.

Files

pstxprt -- VALID part list
pstxnet -- VALID net list

See also

netconv, Packager, loglib

Diagnosis

The error messages issued by valconv are intended to be self-explanatory.

Warnings

Input file identifiers for part names, pin names or net names containing special characters (-, +, /, (, =, ...) must be enclosed in single-quotes or double-quotes. Please contact our technical support for guidance if you want to transfer a net list format different from the description herein .
