I am using ICFB5.1.41_USR4 and I created instances of pcells and contacts using dbCreateParamInstByMasterName. I got the layout that I want but the contacts` Rows and Columns parameter values are both "0" once checked on the properties window although I have the correct contacts layout based on what I specified on the l_params options during generation.
I needed to use dbCreateParamsInstByMasterName because I have to specify the instance name, otherwise I could just use leCreateContact but you cannot assign instance name using this (saved on the ROD tab).
Do I need to re-evaluate my contacts to have the correct parameter values in the params window, same as what needs to be done for pcells? If so how can I do this? I am using the gpdk090 library.
Thanks and best regards,
Sounds odd. Can you give an example piece of code with the all arguments to dbCreateParamInstByMasterName, so I can try it out?
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Here is a sample code with params.
CreateParamInstByMasterName(CV "gpdk090" "M3_M2" "symbolic" "ROD_x20535_y18135" list(20.535 18.135) "R90" 1 list(list("column" "float" 3) list("row" "float" 5) ))
I get a 3x5 via but once I do query of the via, the parameters window reflects "0" values for rows and column.
Note that if I do not include the l_params I get a single via whose parameters are correctly reflected once I do a query.
Could it be I get the syntax for the l_params wrong?
Thanks for your help.
