I am wondering how to force EDI router to strictly use the uni-directional routing only?
Although the routing directions are already defined in the LEF file, the router still create jogs, staircase line... I looked though the manuals (EDI, nanoroute...), but cannot figure it out.
I am very appreciated if anyone could help me. Thanks a lot.
Waiting for sugesstion
In reply to Agustino:
What's your objection to jogs / staircase routing ? If you can get your initial preCTS trial route relatively straight, optDesign and routeDesign will naturally follow.The only time I have EVER needed to remove trialroute staircase is for wide bus routing during top level assembly. Imagine one main channel, nets A[0:4096] point to 4x multi-point in a crossbar with B[0:4096] point to 4x multi-point.All 8192 source pins on one one side of the channel and all 32768 sink pins on the other side.preCTS trialroute sees this 1:4 sink to source ratio and will naturally tend to "hug" the sink side.optDesign -preCTS max cap, tran and distance, buffer insert routine then completely botches it up the channel route-ability .The solution was to try and get a nice inital planar river route with net A on M3vert, M4horz and B on M5vert. M4horz.I was able to accomplish this by guiding the trial route with temporary preplaced routing targets.After optDesign -preCTS the routing targets were removed and the flow continues normally..routing target = addInst -cell buf -inst A_4096i ; attachTerm A_4096i ip A_4096 ; placeInstance A_4096i x y -fixed ;This was in 1998, now there are probably much better ways to accomplish the same thing ie busGuide.Again the questions remain. What's your objection to jogs / staircase routing ? What specifically are you trying to accomplish ?Shawn
