Some more warnings i got like this for XOR and XNOR cells ....
If we dont have ANTENNADIFFAREA for the pin 'Y' what will be the problem??
Please respond to this..
I think the lack of antenna diffusion area defined on the output will make the tool more pessimistic about identifying antenna violation on nets driven by those outputs. Diffusion attached to a net will act as a diode which will drain the charge during manufaturing and reduce the risk of an antenna violation. If the diff is not defined, the tool does not know that the diode exists and may flag a false antenna violation.
Since this situation is more pessimistic (more likely to assume there is a violation), it will not hurt the design, but may cause you to require extra antenna cells which aren't really needed.
In reply to Scrivner:
Hi ,I just want to discuss with some more details::
Antenna Ratio = area of gate (poly) / area of metal piece which is connected to that poly.
If the antenna diode is really needed for a particular long net , if the tool can not find the requirement of that diode due to this warning ,how can we find the requirement of that diode for that particular net.Tool only need to fix this antenna diodesif there is no possibility of layer hopping.
But , before tape_out we need to fix these also other wise we have to get pain of charge accumulation.
