i am trying to estimate area of layout from schematic, so for example i have assigned gate length to a variable:
if(sd_instance~>cellName == "nmos_myPDK"
sd_length = sd_instance~>l
so basically i have assigned gate length to "sd_length". I just did as you suggested:
so i guess if i convert string to flonum (or some such number) then i can begin to multiple width x length x fingers...etc.
