HiWhen I ran write hier_compare command, I found the tool firing the following warning. May I know the reason for such a behavior. Warning: Golden or Revised have modules with number of instances less than 50. Skip it for hierarchical comparisonThanksPrasad.
In order to decrease the number of sub-blocks to comapre Conformal has a threshold.All module with number of primitives less than the treshold are flattened and the "father" module is compared. This is bad syntax of the message, actualy nothing is skipped, don't worry :)
Hi Maxim,According what I see in the dofile generated by the tool as a result of the command I used: -write hier_compare dofile abrisccore3.one -module abrisccore3 abrisccore3 -hier -noexact_pin_matchI don't find the modules it listed in the transcript following this warning. I am afraid they are really being skipped from comparison.ThanksPrasad.
Hi Prasad,These modules are not written into dofile, but the mapped points of these modules are compared together with the mapped points of the "parent" module - the one which instantiate the "skipped" module.Again, no key point is skipped from comparrison.You can send this warning to Cadence support and ask them. Regards,
Hi PrasadMaxim is correct: the module simply gets compared as part of its parent. Saying 'skipped' is bad syntax and there's been internal discussions about changing that.The default threshold is 50 but that can be changed using the -threshold switch. There's usually no reason to do that except for library qualification, where you do want verification to be run, separately, on every single cell.Chrystian
Thanks Maxim,I got you. But, is there any way to tell the tool not to bother itself about simplifying my work!! Prasad.
Thanks Chrystian, I think that dispels all my doubts.
