hInst is hierarchical instance. Usually equivalent to a hierarchical module in Verilog. Type "dbSchema hInst" for more information.

But,Can anyone tell me How in verilog module(netlist) some inst defined as hInst and why??
we can consider all hInst as Inst in .v(verilog module)???
In reply to ajay01:
If you have a hierarchy such as the following then U0 and instA/U1 are insts and instA is an hInst. hInsts are hierarchical modules which have insts inside them.
INVXL U0(...) ;
