ORCAD - DS32-VST- "ERROR-030, Symbol has incomplete pin information."

Description

Keywords: DS32-VST, ERROR-030, incomplete pin information

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running XNF2VST, an error similar to the following occurs:

"DS32-VST-ERROR-030
The symbol 'FDRE' has incomplete pin information."

Solution

This error can occur if you attempt to run XNF2VST on an un-flattened XNF file.
The correct flow for Orcad is the following (assuming no XBLOX):

annotate design.sch -> updates reference designators in schematic
inet design.sch -> design.inf netlist files
sdt2xnf design.inf -> design.xnf netlist files
xnfmerge design.xnf -> design.xff netlist files
(flattened XNF netlist)
xnf2vst design.xff -> design.vst
(VST simulation netlist)

Or, use XSIMMAKE and let it figure out what steps to run.

Since a flattened netlist is used as the input to XNF2VST, it should never see
any macros, such as an FDRE.
