    Creating a new layer and adding DRC rules to it

    samer1

      I am working of IBM PDK 65nm cmos 10LPe. I want to integrate a memristor device in the process. I was able to add the layer in Virtuoso Cadence and now it appears in my LSW in the layout editor of Vitruoso.

       

      I am using Calibre for DRC. I learnt there is a way to add custom rules in calibre interactive. So, I created a .svrf file an wrote my layer rules (actually i copied the file of JX layer (n diffusion) and modified it accordingly to represent to new layer 'memristor').

       

      I go to calibre interactive -> setup ->calibre options -> include ->memristor_DRC.svrf , and then run DRC. It shows an error saying that the 'memristor' (which is the name of the newlayer) is undefined. Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

      How do I define the newlayer in calibre. It is defined in virtuoso but seems like calibre does not see it.

       

      Thanks
