For classroom delivery, this course is taught as half day session (4 hours).
In this course, you analyze how to generate clones as free objects, grouped objects, and synchronized family. You use the Create Synchronous Copy feature, generate clones from modgen, create mutant clones, and analyze how to effectively reuse existing structures in your layout by using clone and copy. You create layout structures using features of the Generate Clones and Create Synchronous Copy commands. You update your layout after an Engineering Change Order (ECO) and update the layout to reflect the pin name changes between schematic and layout by using the Update Components and Nets (UCN) command. You use the Design-Rule-Driven (DRD) Editing and the DRD Interactive Compactor features in the Virtuoso® Layout Suite (XL).
