As we know, there is no option for get exact flat gds while pipo. And after search in support, all way is to saveAs and flatten "layout view" manually or SKILL-ly.
But I wonder whether we can realize it by write a poFlatCell code for "User-defined SKILL"
I try to use dbFlattenInst, but I don'n know how to catch instance id, like "ID" is cell id.
Wish I can get your comment.
Hi JasonActually none of the po* functions for pipo will be able to help us in this. In IC61, we can use poPreTranslate function to flatten the design before stream-out. The next alternative for you would be to use Assura's outfile function in "flat" mode. This would also allow you to generate a flat gds easily.Best regardsQuek
In reply to Quek:
OK, Quek. Then I think I have to back to flatten it in cdb, because I'm using IC5.1
Thanks for your idea.
