    How to share parameter between layout and schematic in a cell Reply

    Hi, everyone,
    If I use SKILL language to get the layout, my purpose is: if the layout and schematic each has a parameter with the same name, when I change one parameter's value, the other's changes too. I am a beginer in Cadence, and I also wander if some one can tell me how to get the value of parameter in schematic in SKILL codes. Thanks!

    I'm afraid I don't really understand your question. Perhaps reading the documentation might be a good first start - read the SKILL User Guide in cdsdoc, and then the Design Framework II SKILL Reference manual.

    It's not obvious which kind of parameter you're talking about, but if it is an instance property, you can look at these on a selected instance by doing:

    car(geGetSelSet())~>thePropName

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Yes, it is instance parameter. I am not sure how to express my question correctly, for example: if there are layout and schematic in a cell, and they both have a inductance, once I chage the value of inductance in layout, the inductance value in schematic would chage automaticlly. I do not if it is clear.
    Thanks for reply, I will try.
