Orcad Capture 7.0 - XNFMERGE "Error 20" caused by invalid pin record with TIMESPEC symbol.

説明

Keywords: Capture, XNFMERGE, invalid, pin record, TIMESPEC

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When using a TIMESPEC symbol in Capture 7.0, the software writes out the XNF file
with an invalid PIN record. This results in "Error 20" in XNFMERGE. I get an error like:

ERROR 18 at line 22: Invalid PIN record.
Missing or invalid direction field.

The XNF file written by Capture would have the following for the TIMESPEC symbol:

SYM,U10,TIMESPEC,SCHNM=TIMESPEC,LIBVER=2.0.0,FROM:FFS:TO:PADS=10NS
PIN,DUMMY,DUMMY,DUMMY
END

Note that the PIN record is invalid in XNF syntax. It is a bug with XNF netlist writer in Capture 7.0.

ソリューション

Delete the PIN record in the XNF file so that it looks like:

SYM,U10,TIMESPEC,SCHNM=TIMESPEC,LIBVER=2.0.0,FROM:FFS:TO:PADS=10NS
