    Encounter doesn't find pgpin in the power pad Reply

    Hi all I need to connect the power pads to power pins (vdd, gnd) in the design, and I am using following commands for that: >>globalNetConnect gnd -type pgpin -pin DUMMY -inst ioco_vssioco_1 -module {} -verbose >>globalNetConnect vdd -type pgpin -pin DUMMY -inst ioco_vddioco_1 -module {} -verbose which, DUMMY is the pin name defined in the reference vss_pad in the library. however, First Encounter (v4.1) issues following errors and warrnings, and doesn't work: **WARN: No PG pin 'DUMMY' in instances with basename 'ioco_vssioco_1' in the design. **ERROR: No PG pin 'DUMMY' in any cell in the LEF files. **WARN: No PG pin 'DUMMY' in instances with basename 'ioco_vddioco_1' in the design. **ERROR: No PG pin 'DUMMY' in any cell in the LEF files. **WARN: Floating InOut term DUMMY of Io inst ioco_vssioco_1. **WARN: Floating InOut term DUMMY of Io inst ioco_vddioco_1. Could someone help me please? Thanks, Ali

    It sounds like you're trying to operate on a single IO instance rather than many instances in the design and the tool is getting confused because it is expecting to string match the instance names. Perhaps you could try the following syntax:

    globalNetConnect vdd -type pgpin -pin DUMMY -singleInstance ioco_vddioco_1 -verbose

    Please do post back and advise whether this resolves your problem.

    Thanks,
    Bob
