During calibre top level extraction a cell called ABC is extracted as hcell. Now when I browse the netlist i found out that this cell is now part of an ICV_n Cell. And I see that ICV_n cell is instantiated in the TOP subcircuit and not cell ABC.
.subckt ABC a b c
.subckt ICV_n 1 2 3
X0 1 2 3 ABC
.Subckt Top x y z p q r s
X9 p q s ICV_n
In the LVS report I see some net/device issue for cell ABC at cell level but when I browse the report for ABC instances at top level I don't see any information for these instances in the report. ABC is instantiated 5 times in the top level GDS.
I at least expected that I see ICV_n instances at top level report but I didn't find any! Is there a setup or known issue?
That sounds odd. I would be interested in knowing what the solution was if you found one, or helping you find one if it's still unanswered.
