I get the following errors while running DRC using diva:
error: Illegal keyword downup found in geomsize().
1288 met1SlotWGT3 = geomsize(Met1_slot 1.499 downup)
error: unknown symbol(unselected) .....
*error* : eval :undefined function -geomSizeAnd
I get a lot of these errors for different metal layers and poly. Checked the divaDRC.rul file. These statements are in there. Am not sure if i shud delete these of let them be as it is.
i am using version 5.1.0, subversion 184.108.40.206
Also i am using a 130nm library, i dont think that shud matter though. I tried contacting the fa, they tell me its not an issue on their end.
Please help as i have been stuck with this issue for over two months now
If that's the exact text, looks like a typoin the rules to me. Capitalization matters so it should be 'geomSize' not 'geomsize'.
In reply to aplumb:
sorr, it was my mistake .. i typed the whole thing in, the 'S' in geomSize is capitalized in the divaDRC.rul file. My suspision is that i might be using a much older version of cadence. what do you think.
In reply to manavraina:
You are running the first release of IC5141, very old, from 2004. The documentation I have access to does not go back that far. I would assume that the command did not get those additional arguments till later, I know that unselect was added after USR4.
Usually if you ask the fab, they will tell you on which software release they tested their design kits. I suspect they were using a much later USR for that release.
I would update to the latest USR to make sure that the command you are using is complete.
