Question

I am unable to Import an EDIF (ver 2.0.0) file into Capture. I am receiving the error message: INFOR(ORCAP-1111): Errors or warnings were encountered, see the session log.

 

I have also received the error messages:

EDIF 200: Syntax Error: source line 2378: Unexpected Integer:25 in edif file...

EDIF 200: Syntax Error: source line 2378: Unexpected Identifier:X2 in edif file...

EDIF 200: Syntax Error: source line 2382: Unexpected Identifier:POL in edif file...


Can you please tell me how I can import an EDIF file into Capture?  

 

Solution

There are two types of EDIF files.  One is a netlist file and the other is a graphical (schematic) file.  A common cause for this type of error is that the EIDF file you are attempting to import is actually an EDIF netlist rather than a schematic file.  


Unless you are familiar with the syntax, it is hard to distinguish between the two types of files. In other words, if the file cannot be Imported and you are getting errors like above, it most likely is an EIDF netlist.
