Device extraction problem

Dear all,


I am trying to implement the layout of a circuit containing a bipolar transistor available in my technology.

Its p-cell allows has fixed areas you can choose and for each area there is a specific layout cell (containing only the layout view, and not any auCdl and auLvs view).

Running Calibre LVS, in the layout netlist I get the following definition of the bipolar transistor subcircuit:


.SUBCKT cell_name



and this SUBCKT is not inserted in the layout netlist.


The version of Calibre LVS I am using is newer than that one recommended in the PDK.

So, the problem should come from somewhere else.


Do you have any idea of what can be the cause of this behavior?


Please, let me know.


Thanks a lot,
