    How to use VSR-autoroute by commandline? Need to use in script! Reply

     Hi,

    I'm using VSR (IC615) Pin to Trunk (P2T) routing for the chip level module integration and it works fine.

    Now, instead of running P2T manually, I would like to script it out and run at chip level at once.

    I cannot find the corresponding comands.

    Only command I found displayed in CIW is:

    (__iaRunAutoRoute (_iaEvalOptions ?cv (getq __iaActiveForm cellview) ?createOverrides (_iaGetOverrideEnabled (getq __iaActiveForm cellview)) ))

    If I do all setup manually and run this command in CIW, it works. But I dont understand how this command works OR the inputs to it. 

    Also, I cannot find any details of the command OR any other commands related to setup/running the tool.

    Is anyone kind enough to help me out with the commands ORhow/where can I find the commands.

    OR on how do I automate the VSR autoroute  operation?

     

     

    Thanks,

    Vishhh!!!

    Hi Vishhh,

    The Pin To Trunk features are intended to be interactive, and as such do not yet have any public SKILL API associated.  There is talk of some plans to create a public API at some point in the future, but this is not even a firm plan yet.  In the meantime, the only real scripting interface that exists is to use RiDE and TCL scripts to control the router.  Some of the form options and settings might be available from .cdsenv variables, but as I said, this capability is primarily an interactive feature.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Lawrence.

    Thanks Lawrence for the response!

    I would really like to have the public SKILL API for P2T router, hope they'll release one.

     

    However, I'm not aware of controlling router using RiDE and TCL scripts.

    Can you please provide with some more details of them so that I can explore the options.

     

    Regards,

    Vish

    Hi Vish,

    I typed "ride tcl script" in the search box in Cadence Online Support and received a few matches, Solution Article 11851058 is one of them which looks to be quite useful.

    Best regards,

    Lawrence.
