Hello, Cadence community,
A short question: has anyone tried to simulate extracted views and change them from the ocean environment?
I have, but didn't succeed (I'm not new to OCEAN or SKILL, so if anyone has any solutions, the level of complexity doesn't matter)... If I understand correctly, one can do this in several ways:
1) create a config file and bind the schematic to the extracted view;
2) bind the extracted view directrly from ADE using setup->environment options-> first two textboxes from the top...
I've tried to implement this in ocean and declare these lines in my script:
envOption('switchViewList '( "spectre" "cmos_sch" "cmos.sch" "schematicExtract" "veriloga" "ahdl"))
The schematicExtract is my extracted schematic :)
The lines above do not change the extracts, OCEAN still uses the simple schematic (not extract) during simulations...
I understand, that the hierarchy should be created (updated) for the software to bind extracts with schematics, but is there any way of doing that in OCEAN? May be OCEAN scripts are not capable of changing between extracted views?
By the by, the scripts DO calculate extracts when I first configure the config file (or through ADE) and then load the script. But as I mentioned earlyer - the calculations are conducted with only the present extract and if I try to change it to another one (now using the OCEAN lines and not from ADE or config file), nothing happens...
By the way, I do not generate the netlist after setting envOption in the script - maybe that's the case? (though I doubt it)
