Calibre nmLVS needs to have these 3 lines added to the rules file:

 

LVS PUSH DEVICES YES // enabled by default
LVS PUSH DEVICES SEPARATE PROPERTIES "pdba.data"
MASK SVDB DIRECTORY "svdb" QUERY CCI PINLOC

 

Once the changes are made, then pin locations are written to the pdba.data file.

 

For Star-RCXT, the Calibre nmLVS to Star-RCXT flow is documented in the Star-RCXT manuals, called PDSP or PDBA flow.

 

The necessary query scripts are provided by Synopsys.

 

2009.06 Star-RCXT code version required.

 

This flow also requires a license feature from Synopsys.
