    Hi Sabyasachi

    SKILL codes for pcells in a pdk are confidential and will not be released. You will not be able to get them. Maybe you would like to describe more on what you are doing just to confirm if you really need the pcell codes.

    Best regards
    Quek

    Hi Sabyasachi,

    Your request is not clear at all, but it sounds like you might want to instantiate a PCell in another SKILL Pcell - if this is the case then there are two functions that you could use to do this:

    dbCreateParamInst and dbCreateParamInstByMasterName

    dbCreateParamInst(
        d_cellView
        d_master
        t_name
        l_point
        t_orient
        [ x_numInst
        [ l_params
        [ b_physOnly ] ] ]
        )
        => d_inst | nil

    dbCreateParamInstByMasterName(
        d_cellView
        t_libName
        t_cellName
        t_viewName
        t_name
        l_origin
        l_orient
        [ x_numInst
        [ l_params
        [ b_physOnly ] ] ]
        )
        => d_inst | nil

    http://support.cadence.com/wps/mypoc/cos?uri=deeplinkmin:DocumentViewer;src=pubs;q=/pcellref/pcellref6.1.4/skillPcells.html

    Check out the documentation on pcells (IC614 version).

    I hope that this helps.

    Regards,

    Lawrence.
