Hello,

Today I want to talking about setting GOLDEN cell in DRC.

 

I put SRAM golden cell in Calibre nmDRC by

 

1. <"LAYOUT PATH "$LAYOUT_PATH" "SRAM.GoLd.gds"> 

2. <"LAYOUT PATH "$LAYOUT_PATH" "SRAM.GoLd.gds" GOLDEN>

 

and run for same SRAM.GoLd.gds both 1,2 with hier and flat option.

 

Then I get the results

 

1-hier : failed  (ERROR: Another cell record encountered for cell GoLd~~)

1-flat : failed (ERROR: Another cell record encountered for cell GoLd~~)

 

2-hier : passed (run success)

2-flat : failed (ERROR: Another cell record encountered for cell GoLd~~)

 

I read from SVRF manual that the keyword "GOLDEN" should only be used for hierarchical runs.

So is this right results?

 

I will really appreciate to whom explain this easily...

Thank you
