The LVS MAP DEVICE statement can be used in the SVRF rulefile to change the "subtype" of a device but your description indicates the actual component name is different. Here's a link to a TechNote that touches on this statement:
Something you might consider is using the same name for the component type in the DEVICE statement for those layout devices, such as "sw", and then use a different subtype to indicate which are "sw1" or "sw2" etc. then you should be able to use the LVS MAP DEVICE statement to bring them all back together matching the same single device in the schematic. I would be interested to hear if this helps.
Thanks for your helpful answer.
I found out that it is possible to create multiple device definitions of the same device name with different seed layers.
Hence, i do not need to map and such.
So it is good enough for my application.
