    How to calculate the metal area for some power signals

    lianocurto

      Suppose that I have generated 3 power signals (VSSI, VCCI, VCCE) and that I want to calculate the metal  (only one layer, for example M1) area (as a percentage) of each signal. Is it possible accomplish this? Someone may give me a hint?

          That sounds like the single-layer form of Net Area Ratio to me. (Documented in the SVRF manual, svrf_ur.pdf.)  Does this work for you, or is there something not quite right?

           

          If you need something a bit more customized, there might be some code you can leverage from the Solutions for Physical Verification manual, particularly the examples using DFM.  Look for calbr_solns_pv_user.pdf in your mgcdocs directory.
