Hello I work in Calibre using OpenAccess database and found

bug.

 

Bug when using PCELL (skill pcells).

 

Version of Calibre: ixl_cal_2012.4_16.11

Use Cadence IC06.15.011

Cadence cdsLib plugin (version 32.11_22.42)

OpenAccess database library versions are listed below.

Library: oaBase 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaCM 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaDM 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaDesign 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaTech 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaUtil 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

Library: oaWafer 22.41.004 Wed Nov 24 12:00:24 2010

 

Now the error:

In Virtuouso Make a new Cellview type layout.

In Virtuouso Layout Suite put pcell, such as MOSFETs.

Saves.

Then run through Calibre CALIBRE SKILL INTERFACE ( In Virtuouso menu Calibre-> Run

DRC).

In Calibre put

Layout-> Format-> OpenAccess

I press "Run DRC" and error show this message

 

ERROR: Empty pcell pch_25$$47339693470362 found, aborting as

-AbortOnEmptyPCell is specified

ERROR: Failure to read input file LibMikron_CMOS_065 at record offset 0.

 

I decided to find out is able the Calibre to open pcells.

Launched from the command line

calibredrv

 

Further

File-> Open Database

In the flag put OpenAccess

Opposite Library click the Browse ... button

In the window "Calibre OPENACCESS Library Browser"

Choose my cell and view layout

Open it.

Polygons / cells opens normally.

Pcells was not open, the layers are not visible, but in the tree

present as nch_25$$47974228619290 and pch_25$$47974228619802
