    Hello All,
    I want to get the pin location of a certain instance [Pad] in the design? Are they any dbCommands to accomplish this?
    Thanks for the help.

    There's several ways to go about getting this information from the db, and I'm not exactly certain from your question what object type you're seeking. It sounds like it is a pin on an IO cell (there can be multiple of course) but at any rate, here are a couple of examples that might help. If they don't, please feel free to post back seeking clarification: Using dbGet style (debuted in 7.1): selectInst IOPADS_INST/Ptdspip15 encounter 2> dbGet selected.instTerms.name IOPADS_INST/Ptdspip15/PAD IOPADS_INST/Ptdspip15/C encounter 3> dbGet selected.instTerms.pt {264.12 1316.13} {251.455 1082.22} Using FE-TCL (long standing db access mechanism): encounter 9> set inst [dbGetInstByName IOPADS_INST/Ptdspip15] 0x18ee84ec encounter 10> dbForEachInstTerm $inst term {Puts "[dbTermLoc $term]"} 528240 2632260 502910 2164440 (these values can be converted to microns with "dbDBUToMicrons")

    Excuse me for not being clear. Yes, I am looking for pin location of a pad instance. Thanks for the suggestion Bob. FE-TCL is great and it works. I will also try the new dbGet.
