Hi Kari, thanks for the reply
To make it clearer: We are only powering one core via external vcc at a time. There is no need for power switches. The used lib even does not have and power awareness. My problem in the moment is, that the power supply lines of the standard cell rows are always connected to the last used vcc_core$.
what I have is one toplevel module which instanciates the 5 cores. than i create a fence for each core, create the powerrings around the fence and connect the pin vdd_core (only under module core1) to global net vdd_core1. the same for cores 2 to 5.
how can i restrict sroute to only route the standard cell vdd lanes inside the area of the module fences? outside the fences there will be no logic at all, only wires.
