I am using a memory IP block from STM. The manuals of the memory IP has talked a lot about Synopsys Technology File (STF), though, with no info on how and where to use it. Among all files related to the memory IP, I could find a template.stf file.
any idea if Synopsys Technology File (STF) is the same as all *.lib *.db files which can be used in synthesis flow using synopsys design compiler (e.g., design_vision) or is just that abovementioned *.stf file??
Anyone with experience on using a *.stf file in any stage of ASIC flow?
P.S: with *.stf of course I do not mean *.sdf file
