     Check your sroute command for the option  -corePinNoRouteEmptyRows. You may have this accidentally turned on.

     Hi Kari,

          I have set the corePinNoRouteEmptyRows to "off" but still its not creating follow rails for some empty,(not at all empty rows, follow rails are created at some places where the rows are empty)

             There is no blockage or any kind of obstruction , but still its not able to create  follow rail only in some particular loacation.

                     Do you any idea as what could be the problem.

     

    thanks

    deepak.

     Deepak,

     

    I'm not sure what could be going on. Could you try drawing in a followpin by hand in one of these areas and see if  you get any DRC violations? Sometimes it's not obvous why sroute won't draw in a certain area and this can help find out. Also, if you flood your core with filler cells and then route your followpins, does it work then?
