    command to check vias on macros (RAMS) Reply

    Hi

    can any body tell me, how do we ensure that vias are formed on macros.

    I mean is there any command or any way to check vias on Macros because checking for vias manually is a time taking work.

      

    Thanks

    suraj

     Suraj,

      I don't know of a way to do this within SoCE, however there should be VIA DENSITY decks available for your favorite DRC engine (Calibre, Hercules, etc.) that can assist in finding places where there is a metalN/metalN+1 overlap that does not have a via.  While not specifically looking at macro interfaces, it should identify missing vias over macro pins.

     Suraj,

    I'm not sure if you're talking about signal routes or power/ground routes, but you can try verifyConnectivity and also, EPS has a missing via check for the power grid.
