Any help would be appreciated.I do ECO
(to place a few cells into an already placed and routed design). If I
now un-check fix pre-placed cells and do incremental Final route (with
Redo Global Route for violations checked) will Silicon Ensemble
automatically re-adjust the nets coming into and outof the cells that
were moved, to accomodate for the new cells. Is there a marked difference if instead I choose to SET VAR QPLACE.FIX.PLACED.CELL "TRUE";....and what is the significance of the following message"WROUTE: Netlists are mismatching between SE database and wroute database."
Hello ,you can use "ecoPlace -fixPlacedInsts " option to don`t move the instances which was already placed.How ever when "-fixPlacedInsts " option is not specified in order to place unplaced cell in the optimal position , the instances which was already placed and has PLACED status may move . to Route nets which were changed by ECO use encounter > setnanoRouteMode routeWithECO tru encounter > globalDetailRouteWhen the variable "routeWithECO true " is set , only nets with differs its wire connection and net connection are rerouted.If routing doesn`t complete with "routeWithECO true " option , then route with "routeWithECO false " in this case all nets are re-routed ,but the course of the wire which is already routed doesn`t change roughly In general Soc can handle 3 types of ECO flow like 1. Post -layout ECO2. post -Mask ECO3. Smart ECO How ever you have not mentioned which one you are using and flow involved to do it ??FYI .As we know the procedure will generate use ecoCompareNetlist and loadECO commands . ecoDefIn : Restores physical information from an old design and compares this information with the design in memory. This command uses the specified DEF file - New cells and nets Cells and nets that exist in memory but not in the DEF file become unplaced. - Deleted cells or nets Cells and nets that exist in the DEF file but not in memory are dis- carded. - Modified nets Nets found both in the DEF file and in memory, but whose connections are different, are marked as "modified" for further processing during ecoRoute. - Matched cells/nets Nets and cells that exist both in the DEF file and in memory, and have the same connections, are placed as described in the DEF file. This includes the soft matching capability used in defIn. - In post-mask mode (with the -postMask parameter), the software can only change nets, not cells. This command behaves as follows: - New added cells and nets Cells and nets that exist in memory but not in the DEF file become unplaced. Later, these cells but will be mapped to spare cells when you use ecoPlace -useSpareCells. - Deleted cells Cells and instances that exist in DEF but not in memory are added to a spare cell list in Encounter: They are not discarded. Deleted cells are renamed with their original name and the suffix you specify. The default suffix is _SPARE. For example, cellA is renamed cellA_SPARE. The software retains deleted nets and their routing, which ecoRoute reroutes later. - Deleted nets Nets that exist in DEF but not in memory are kept and processed later when you use the ecoRoute command. - Modified nets Same behavior as in the pre-mask mode. - Matched cells and nets Same behavior as in the pre-mask mode. - Physical cells Cells that exist in the DEF file but not in memory, which are marked with +SOURCE DIST in the DEF file, are restored.
