    Virtuoso crashing on executing mgc_rve_load_setup_file command for big layouts

    anandmohancec@gmail.com

      HI

      I am trying to execute  the following 'mgc_rve_load_setup_file' command in CIW for a batch of cells.( mgc_rve_load_setup_file command is used to generate calibre view from a pex netlist). For that I am using the below skill code.

       

      procedure(pex_list()
      mgc_rve_load_setup_file("calibreview_1")
      mgc_rve_load_setup_file("calibreview_2")

      mgc_rve_load_setup_file("calibreview_3")

      mgc_rve_load_setup_file("calibreview_4")

      )

      where calibreview_1,_2, _3 are calibre pex template files of calibre view generation window.

       

      I will load the skill file and then the function pex_netlist() is called in CIW window. For smaller cells like flip-flop,inverter etc the calibre view is getting generated.  But if I try to generate the calibre view of a larger cell (example cells with more that 10 flip-flops) the virtuoso is getting crashed. What is causing this crash. Please guide me, is anything wrong with the way skill file is being executed.
