Hi Tadashi,
From a flow into XTK perspective I start off using PRECISE. However I use
my version of a base .gcf file to start from. When it comes to iterations I
have written my own simple scripts to create the database but lately I have
been using IMPAST. The only problem is the two methods use slightly
different file trees.( use mv -r to move the files)
We run both UNIX and PC here. For the batch runs I use an AMD650 running
NT4.0 with 384Mb memory. It is MUCH faster than the Dual Ultra Sparc
machine, even when I split up the database with PARALAX in UNIX.

If you use the constants and the bus declarations you get fast run times and
quality data in the standard report. I have used AWK to strip the .gen file
and excel to sort the data.

I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joe Socha

        Dear SI Gurus, and (especially) XTK experts,

        I am a user of XTK.
        I have plan to make some scripts helping to let XTK more useful.
        But it is wrong effort if they already exist. So I am searching any
        "Cakewalk" tools related to XTK.
        If you have such tools or any information, please provide them if
you
        can.

        (1) Script(s), converting XTK outputs to CSV or Excel importable
format.
        (2) Excel macro, visualizing XTK analysis results to
easy-to-understand
            graph style.
        (3) Script(s), making delay constraints from device timing infos.
(valid
            delay, setup, hold...), and judging if any net delay was OK or
not.
            (or calcurating how much margin (budget))
            # BLAST? HA!HA! I think it can do easier on pin-to-pin
connection.
        (4) Server apps, publishing XTK results (waveforms etc.) to the
            designers via the web.
            (Currently, I and my staffs are working with making pages of
such
            contents by hand. It is hard enough)

        (and it is very OPTIONAL)
        (5) Script(s) or application, making easier to ready XTK databases
from
            PCB design database.

        However I think it cannot take a lot to create these macros/scripts,
I
        am very first with programming so that I must study hard ;)
        I hope there are lots of utilities I can pick them up.

        Very thanks for advance,
