Hi DN,Originally posted in cdnusers.org by EngHan
What I did is to dump out a DEF before placement. The def has all the pad and macro, but no std cell. I then rip out all the pads statement from the def file. I then use this info to determine the bonding points. With this information, I generate three files:
1. A TCL that will add the bond pads (addInst and placeInstance commands) and pin text (addCustomText command) to the layout
2. Generate bonding netlist that will be needed by the assembly house
3. Two files that voltagestorm needs to indicated the location of power and ground source.
All the above can be scripted, and is run from encounter with something like "exec scripts/go.csh".
