I'm getting huge numbers of the message:
Warning: Illegal hierarchical connection to internal net between instance......
I can't understand why these warning boxes are even there but so many?!
Even when I'm connecting to the pin I still often get the warning box hassles.
Why would Cadence do this to layout people? It seems to be drastically overdone!
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
In the CIW enter the command:
The problem is caused by cell placements that overlap each other and cause hierarchical shorts. In IC613 ISR 17, a limit has been set to 1000 markers for these shorts. It is also available in IC614 ISR 1.
Please respond directly to the initial question instead of creating a new topic so we can track all the responses together.
The cool thing for the MS Windows type of user isthat in every window on the right side there is the'Help' menu item where you can find an 'About!, whichtells you the version.
No need to look ate the log file or use SKILL for getting the 'hidden' version.
In reply to berndf:
Under the Help button on the CIW is an "About Virtuos" button that brings up the flash screen that displays the version information. This can be done as well as typing in the command I listed in a previous reply.
