  • Misalignment of schematic while porting

    When I am porting schematic library from x foundry to y foundry (for now assume all other instance properties like width length etc are same), there is misalignment so net connectivity is lost. For example if i have nmos in x foundry on converting to Y foundry it is getting shifted and rotated. So what...

At the upper layer of hierarchy I have set the net expression properties to ensure these nets are connected to avdd, gnd, vsubn, vsubp. Starting from...

  • inner workings of Virtuoso Copy command

    Greetings forum Does the Copy command under virtuoso place db objects into a "paste" buffer that is still maintained after the copy command is terminated which could be accessed with a SKILL command some amount of time later ? Is the buffer erased and filled with a new object once the copy...

The Save File As form looks quite different in v6, but...

  • Turn off Enter Forms in v6

    Does anyone know how to turn off the visibility of the Enter Forms for common functions in Virtuoso v6? For example, the stretch, move, copy, etc commands under the Edit menu, whether called by the pulldown or by bindkey, popup an Enter Form that I only saw in v5 by using the F3 key. Is there a setting...

  • Skill code to apply instance orientation to a cordinate

    Hi, I'm looking to extract label cordinates of an instance based on how the instance is placed, i.e, after factoring in the orientation of the instance. Has anyone written code like this? For eg. x:y = 10:20 would become -10:20 after MY, 20:10 after MYR90 Thanks, Shaju

    Hi experts, I'm facing some issue with pre-loaded bindkeys after virtuoso upgraded from IC5.1.X to IC6.1.X. The Error is related to the skill command "leSetAllLayerValid" (complaining cannot get current techfile in the LSW"). I believe this is due to the diff program loading sequence...
