  • Finding all paths in a cell and increase width

    I never used SKILL before but I decided to put one together to migrate a cell library. The final piece I am missing is finding all paths on a particular metal layer (e.g. M1) whose width is less than 0.1 um. Once found, I'd like to set the width of all those paths to be 0.1 um. I tried searching...

  • SKILL code to detect empty cells while parsing CSV file

    Hi SKILL experts, I am trying to parse a CSV file and populate this data into a hash table. The CSV file could possibly have empty cells. If any of the first 7 columns for a given row in the CSV file is empty, the parser should stop and not write the data to the hash table. Although when the line is...

  • Antenna violations skill code

    Hi, I am trying to figure out the best way to fix antenna vioaltions for custom layout. If anyone have any scripts to help me get started for writing custom skill code to put in antenna diodes for the violations or use a jumper to a high level metal, that would really jump start my effort.
