Im new to skill scripting and I would like to ask anyone if its possibe in virtuoso layou editor (6.1) if vias or contacts could be stretched.
And cutting of arrays.
Thanks in advance.
Vias are of two types, standard vias and custom vias - to my knowledge a standard via cannot be "stretched" (what do you mean by this anyway? The rows and columns can be increased or reduced, but not by a stretch handle). A custom via could be represented by a PCell which could be stretchable although I have never tried this, it might not be supported?
And cutting of arrays? <---- ?? Please state your question in a way that someone else might be able to understand what the problem is without having to guess what you are asking ??
In reply to skillUser:
I think i would like to create a custom vias/contacts wherein you can increase and decrease them by stretching.
Is this posdible thru skill?
if yes, How could i start this?
cutting of arrays of cells - this means that the user doesnt need to go through
editing properties and edit the rows and columns. Just simply cut the arrayed part
and the arrayed part will be split in whatever way you wanted to be?
Have you done this before?
In reply to cadvin:
This functionality is now available in 6.1.6.
Stretching works for vias (and mosaics as well).
Cutting also works (use <F3> for further options while cutting).
To enable this you need to turn it on in the select options menu.
In reply to ColinSutlieff:
For clarification, I meant "chopping" rather than cutting. (default cadence bind key <shift> C)
Colin - a small clarification. Stretching of vias is an early adopter feature (via the Back to Basics programme) in IC616, so it is not available by default.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Im using ic6.1.5 .... so stretching of vias and contacts, do they exists here? and how?
Regarding the slicing or chopping of arrayed objects, i tried applying it by using shift c but nothing happened.
Sorry for the confusion,
stretching/chopping of of vias is a 616 feature (as Andrew says, it's not, by default, enabled at the moment). Contact Cadence if you want to evaluate this.
Stretching (but NOT chopping) of mosaics is also a 6.1.6 feature and is not an early adopter feature so you should be able to use it
Mosaics cannot be chopped
