I am using IC6.1.5-64b.500.12
When I call Instances from schematics to layout using "generate>selected from source", it places the instances multiple times. Also all the instances are placed at origin
Any idea why this is happening ? and how to solve this issue ?
I'd normally expect this if you have a parameter called m to act as a multiplier. If you don't want to have "m" treated as an m-factor, you can prevent that from the XL Options form.
Thanks andrew for quick reply. But unfortunately that did not help.
I have attached a snapshot for more clarifications.
thanks & reagards,
Unfortunately I don't think I can help much seeing a picture at that level of detail - this would be best handled by you contacting customer support, and then somebody can take a look at your data (either by you sending it, or via remote web-sharing session).
Did you fix your multiple instances issue? I am facing the same issue and I don't know how to solve it.
In my particular case, I have a single inductor in the schematic and when I transition to layout XL, I get 5 instances of that inductor.
For those who want to take a look, please click on the picture to see the layout window as well.
This is probably because your inductor has a parameter called "s". Go to Options->Layout XL, and on the Parameters tab, in the section labelled "Schematic Parameter Names", change the cyclic field to "Series-connected factor". It's probably showing "s S" as the value. Change this to something that doesn't include "s" (e.g. "sdummy").
What it is probably doing is misinterpreting the s=5u as 5 series connected instances...
