    Cadence crash ! Reply

    Hi,  I have just installed a new PDK on my CADENCE IC 6.1.4, and I have the following errors that I cannot solve! :


    1/ When I launch cadence IC6.1.4 with the command: "virtuoso", I can see in the CIW window that the initialization runs a lot of time and finally ends with : "*Error* unknown: Value Stack Overflow!!! (possibly due to too many args in a call, too deeply nested calls, or too large a function)", then a lot of time: "*LF-INFO* .cdsinit: Loading the user .cdsinit             done".

    2/ Anyway cadence is launched and is working, but when I try to place a Pcell in layout (Creat Instance) or to generate the layout from a schematic (Connectivity--> Generate --> All from source), cadence crashes and the report gives the following error:
    "*Error* unknown: Value Stack Overflow!!! (possibly due to too many args in a call, too deeply nested calls, or too large a function)"

    Can you please help me ?

    Raphael

     Hi Iraf,

     

     If the following Cadence on line solution doesn't help:  

    SKILL Function Physical Limitation

     

    http://support.cadence.com/wps/mypoc/cos?uri=deeplinkmin:ViewSolution;solutionNumber=1832365

     

     This is a perfect time to contact Cadence Customer Support.  http://support.cadence.com .

     

    You may also want to look at solution 11354348: 

    Is there a limit on number of parameters a SKILL PCell can have?
