    Metal co-ordinates of a PCELL Reply

    Hi,

     

    Is it possible to get the metal && poly co-rdinates of a Pcell without flattening the Pcell?

    also is it possible to select a instance at a particular co-ordinate using Skill?

     

    Thanks,

    Vignesh T K

    Hi Vignesh,

    If you have the instance id, you can do:

    instId~>master~>shapes

    or 

    instId~>master~>lpps

    to find each layer-purpose-pair, and then find the shapes on each layer. Having done that, you could use things like dbTransformPoint or dbTransformBBox to transform the coordinates to the top level coordinate system, passing instId~>transform as the transform argument. 

    Essentially instId~>master is pointing at the subMaster of the pcell - i.e. the particular variant.

    To select something a fixed point use:

    point=20:79
    geAddSelectPoint(hiGetCurrentWindow() nil point)

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi Vignesh,

    Something similar was discussed very recently. See this append by skillUser and my subsequent append.

    Come back again if it's still not clear after reading that.

    Best Regards,

    Andrew.
