Hi,I notice that when I streamout a GDS from Encounter and import this in ICFB, all standard cells are tied to one single library. I have to manually use the "search and replace" feature and change the library reference name for each cell instantiated in the layout. A skill script to do the search and replace for the libname of standard cells or a pointer on how to go about this would be very helpful.Thanks in advance for the help,Arun
Hi, Arun,I thought it is very easy to switch library name for all the standard cells in the Virtuoso layout editor (inside icfb). Click on edit->search, then, in the pop-up form, search for all the inst with "currentLibName", click on apply, all the inst satisfy the criteria will be selected. Afther this, in the bottom of the form, put Replace ->lib name->"yourNewLibName" and then, click on "Replace All", then, all the instance will switch to "yourNewLibName".I don't know how to control the reference library when GDS into icfb. I usually use DEF to transfer data from Encounter to icfb, which could allow you specify the reference library list (first choice, second choice, ...)Tongju
Hi Tongju,I use the exact same procedure to replace the library name. However, in my case I have multiple reference libraries. So its proving to be iterative and tedious sometimes. I will try the def option. Thanks for the suggestion.
