  • Re: How to change library name & cell name by SKILL

  • Re: setting user property in symbol view

    Hi Rajiv, Any database object, except for a property itself, can have a property added/attached to it. (For a property of a property, you would need to create a hierarchical property object). You should be able to do what you want using the dbCreateProp() function: dbCreateProp( g_object t_name t_propType...

  • Re: Diff Symbol views

    Hi, Typically this is done for layout views. I understand a common technique for layout is to perform an XOR (exclusive-OR) of the two views and any output is the result of differences between the two input views. However, I am not sure if you can use the dbLayer * functions for a schematic view, I have...
