Ample/Tcl Scripts and Automation

Discussion created by werther2 on Apr 11, 2010

Hi everyone!

I'm very new to nanometer design with Mentor Graphics software. What I'm trying to do is to write a custom script (either Ample or Tcl)  that will automatically run DRC and LVS checks and report any issues/success back to the user. Since I'm not sure where to begin, does anyone have any pointers as to example scripts such as what I mentioned or even a good starting tutorial to creating these tools?


Thanks in advance!
