  • Change SkillIDE default directory
    Is there a way to set the directory that SkillIDE launches from? I would like to specify the directory that SkillIDE looks in when I hit ctrl+o after launching SkillIDE for the first time after launching Virtuoso. It seems to default to the directory where Virtuoso was launched. I assume this can be set through the .cdsenv or .cdsinit files, but I ...

  • compiling libInit.il procedures into p-cells
    Is there a way to force a compiled p-cell to encapsulate the procedures it was originally compiled with? I am working with a collaborative team that spans many sites, and we need to share our p-cells. However, these p-cells and associated procedures are under active development, and they pretty much stay under active development until tapeout. So ...

  • Re: Streaming out pcells to gds
    Another clue: I found that streaming out without instantiating works on version 6.1.5. However, we can't use 6.1.5 due to its inability to handle size operations on polygons larger than 4000 points. The exact versions are:  IC6.1.5.500 (works) IC6.1.6.101 (does not work) As a workaround, we're using 6.1.5 for streaming out and 6.1.6 ...

    Yes, the pcells are saved. I also tried streaming out from VM, and it didn't work. Mark

  • Re: Streaming out pcells to gds
    Andrew, Thanks for the quick response. I'm using 6.1.6, and using pcDefinePCell to create the pcells. I've successfully done what I'm describing on a different Cadence install at a previous institution, so I know it can be done (as you just tested yourself). I'm now just looking for any reason that it doesn't work on ...

  • Streaming out pcells to gds
    Hi, While I'm actively developing a pcell, it is useful to be able to stream out a gds directly from the pcell without instantiating it in another layout first. However, when I try to stream out the pcell using the CIW File -> Export -> Stream, the streamed out file is empty and the "Summary of Objects Translated" message to ...

  • Re: SKILL Variable
    I'm having a similar problem, so I thought I'd add on to this thread. I have an existing library that I wanted to copy to a new library and change the reference libraries to the new library. I did this using the "copy wizard," and it seemed to work for the most part. However, I have SKILL scripts where I'm trying to create ...
