  • Re: skill commands
    [quote user="skillUser"]Yassou Nik, The "include" statement should be able to go in the ./cds.lib file, the syntax looks correct - you can use either "INCLUDE" or "SOFTINCLUDE" and these keywords are case-insensitive.  In SKILL the ddSetForcedLib() command allows a different directory's cds.lib ...

  • Re: Short locator between 2 nets.
    Oh sorry I didn't understand the question at first. This code should help you. I've also attached it because I can't format it correctly here. procedure( myGUI() let( (myChoices pinObjects) myChoices = list("PIN1" "PIN2") pinObjects = getMyPinObjects() ; you have to write this function to return a ...

    I'm using sub-version 5.10.41.500.6.134 from the getVersion(t) command so I couldn't find any bnd* functions but lxSetConnRef() and lxGetLXInfo should be enough: \i help lxGetLXInfo \o \o lxGetLXInfo( \o { srcView | dstView | workingWinId } \o [ cellviewID ] \o ) \o => dbID | winID | nil \o \o Returns the value ...

  • Re: Short locator between 2 nets.
    How are you finding the two shorted nets? Using a tool such as assura? Do you have pin objects in your layout that are associated with these two nets? Pins have a bBox.

  • Link between VLX (Virtuoso XL schematic) and Virtuoso layout database
    When creating layout from VXL, the instances are placed with names that correspond to the instances in the schematic. When I click on a layout instance, the corresponding schematic instance is highlighted and vise versa. If the layout instance's names are changed this link still exists, but since I don't have access to it in SKILL I ...

  • Re: Open pCell for Edit Keeping pCell's Parameters
     Thanks Andrew. I wanted to use dbFlattenInst() but I see that I should first check if the master is a pcell and handle it differently.

  • Open pCell for Edit Keeping pCell's Parameters
    When opening a pcell with dbOpenCellViewByType(), the pcell's parameters are set to the default values. If the pcell is instanced in another cell, you can open that pcell with cell~>instances~>master and the pcell's shapes will reflect any changes that were made on the pcell's parameter values. However, the pcell will be opened ...

  • Re: Text editor or framework for SKILL...
     In Windows, I use Notepad++ from notepad-plus.sf.net and it recognizes SKILL as LISP code with many programming oriented features including folding and highlighting all occurances of a selected word.  In Linux, I use Scite which isn't as good as Notepad++ but almost up there. It also color codes as LISP code.
