How to avoid cell name conflicts in chip assembly with automated cellname prefix/suffix

Video created by swilliam on Oct 7, 2014

    In today's complex chip design flows, designers receive libraries with physical data from multiple internal and external vendors. The potential

    for having a cell-name conflict between different libraries increases with the chip complexity. That could result in many instances being

    replaced with the wrong cell during chip assembly. Renaming cells with a name prefix or suffix with a well-defined methodology could solve the

    problem. This video demonstrates how to use Calibre DESIGNrev Tcl API to create a simple automated cell renaming procedure.
