Hi,I am looking for a way to generate the net lenght for power, clock and signal nets per layer. Does anybody know a way to do that and is there any pre-requisite. I assume that the DEF attribute are all that is needed.Typically I would like to generate a table withMETn Thanks for your help,Eric.
Hello Eric,You can get this summary from the encounter GUI:Design -> Report -> SummaryYou can generate a Text or HTML report. The following information in the text output is at the bottom of the report. This is not broken out exactly the way you are looking for though (clk net, special net, signal net)Regards,Elvis==============================Wire Length Distribution==============================Total M1 wire length: 0.0000 umTotal M2 wire length: 1006351.7600 umTotal M3 wire length: 1294334.0600 umTotal M4 wire length: 1153091.0800 umTotal M5 wire length: 1069123.9400 umTotal M6 wire length: 1022576.4600 umTotal M7 wire length: 748782.6200 umTotal M8 wire length: 11216.9800 umTotal M9 wire length: 37798.3800 umTotal wire length: 6343275.2800 umAverage wire length/net: 57.3642 um
Hello Elvis,I have been digging into this and in fact to do what I want I need a few reports.The one you mention give me global usage per layer but not a breack down by category.The trick without advance scripting is that there is no report per category or net giving both special and regular nets so I use the following reportsFor power nets reportPowerStat -detailed -wireonlyFor non power nets reportWire -detail 0The first report is not very comprehensive as it uses layer number instead of layer name but it is not too difficult to handle.The second report will have all your routed (included power for tie high/low) and is very usefull if you have some kind of naming convention or generate an associate report (through scripts) classifying the nets per category.And then finally I use a perl script to process all that.If anybody has a better solution let me know.Thanks,Eric.
