    How to change my layout labels from [*] to<*> Reply

    Hi,all

    I am new to this forum.I have a problem with my layout.Can someone help me to solve it?

    In my layout,the pins is at the format of

  • , but in my schematic,my pins' format is <*>,so I can not  make my LVS clean.

    So how can I use SKILL to replace my layout

  • labels with <*> ?

    Thank you!

    This was an issue in the old days when you get your GDS layout form
    a digital place and route tool which took the Verilog bus naming
    convention [ and you streamed it in to Cadence DFII.
    There is an option in your stream interface today
     in PIPO 'Replace [ with <>',
     XStream, should do this automatically,
       but I'm not sure here (maybe some other can comment).

    There is on old discussion in comp.cad.cadence about this,
    which answres every question, 'Titel: A seemingly simple Skill question ...'
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.cad.cadence/browse_thread/thread/5fcb778a95d3af84/2009a86def9e05dc

    There is also a SourceLink Solution which offers the reverse way

    You have modify the code to your needs.
