Arjan,

I use IS quite successfully on very large boards. I can translate a board
with 2000 nets in about 20-30 minutes. I just synthesized 300 nets with
relative timing rules over night. It sounds to me like you're running on a
Sparc1 or something. You should talk to your ICX application specialist.
I've found ICX support to be phenomenal! Give them a chance to help you.

Regards,
Weston Beal

Subject: [SI-LIST] : MG Interconnectix

Hello all,

Since a few months we're working with
Mentor Graphics Interconnectix.

After a while we found out, that synthesizing
just a few critical nets, just as running conversion
scripts or processing rules, easily can take
some hours.

To us it seems that the usage of Interconnectix,
is too time consuming, to benefit from it, as
we compare it's results to some new autorouters.

We're told that a lot of companies use Interconnectix
nowadays. What is your experience, is it worth
spending so much time or is it just usefull for
PWB's with a few critical tracks.

What is your opinion?

Thanks in advance,
