my script is loading the gds files and give a name to the "library".
It load whatever is found in the csv file.
As Matthias commented, you can create easily a script for a given technology in the technology folder, which loa…
i had the same questions you have a time ago. I managed to have a "almost fine" solution using a small script and a csv file containing path to library and name of them. This way, each time a tech is selected, the script read th…
In the browse shape or browse instance menu (tools) you have access to everything you need i believe. you can indeed in this menu , do a selection of one or many shapes/instances and then delete them all
Hello again Matthias
Think i got the real issue here.
Actually i have tried your suggestion with my Pcell being in the local macro folder (identifeid as local in the macro window) and it works ok (even if i put only run on startup )
Now i also have…
have tried your suggestion. works like a charm !! Thanks for your help and for your great work !!
Maybe can i suggest you to put the early startup flag to true by default in your Pcell template?
Concerning the order of loading when all is done through the macro way, i dunno, i suppose that its follow alphebetic order. In this case, my "old" way of doing should have loaded the Pcell before the library (since my Pcel…
OH So Sorry guys.. looks like forgot to do so .time is sometimes flying so fast.Here is the macro
Again, maybe not very clean coding style...
How to use:
put the cell to be replaced as active (cell name in bold)
then right clock and select Repl…
Hi Laurent, Matthias
Give it a try today. It's similar to the algorithm i have, which is quite coarse. I think that the fill tool really optimize the die placement, hence increase significantly the die number (on the test i made with large die(fiel…
Many thanks for the fix ! Will use the new version tomorrow.
I have also encounter the bug you mentionned (rerun of macro), but believing it was my use of macro which was incorrect...and it was not that annoying, since occuring only i…
looks like all is fine when doing things "cleanly" (that is avoid opening libraries and top files and ...)
The bug is not that easy to reproduce indeed...
Regards and thanks fopr this awfull tool.
Hi again Matthias
Forget it, i dig a bit more in the issue. Looks like it is not related to the Pcell at all, but to the way i use my libraries.
actually, i often open the library, then the top file, make some mods (often it is deletion) in the li…
just to come back on this technology file management.
Is it possible to launch the import (or export) function of the technology manager using a script or a macro?
I have not been able to find the API code for that.
Now things are working OK. However i have a "request".
Is it possible to have something more elaborated than the simple "superseding"
Let's me explain what i mean.
Imagine that i create a new technology (using tools…
Was indeed intented to become public. That's part of the spirit of GPL :-) isnt'it? You have written and released a master piece of software, so it appears to me normal to contribute when i can and with my modest ruby knowledge.
Thanks. I think i got it now. I think that the observed behaviour is linked to the global setting overriding the local one. I think that we will have to take care to be on the right technology settings before opening the gds (at least…
