This is not surprising. Amber was developed for molecular simulations
(primarily for biomolecules), not for crystals. Antechamber only works on
molecules, and its parameterization is for organic molecules.

I can't think of anyway to use antechamber to develop parameters for Si slabs,
and you will probably have to do this "by hand" (or by adapting published
parameters from other investigators.)
