We're trying to run a post extracted simulation and the simulator won't netlist.
Error message reads:
ERROR (OSSHNL-249): There is no corresponding terminal for 'zorchp' (on placed master 'ind_diff_1p95n_ef/layout') in....
A long time ago when I was doing the layout of the cell mentioned I added a pin named zorchp. It is no longer there. It does not exist in the layout, av_extracted (extracted), schematic, or symbol views in this level or any level of the hierarchy. There are no other views.
It seems as though the cdf parameters got stuck. We tried re-creating the symbol view in order to force the cdf params to update, indeed the tool asked us if it was ok to overwrite them and we answered affirmatively.
I have two questions:
1) How do we correct the non-existent terminal and get the tool to netlist
2) Is there a setting or env variable that we can set to ignore unused terminals.
You can use dbFindTermByName(d_cellView t_name ) function to find this terminal and dbDeleteObject( d_object ) to delete it.
Open your layout
myTerm = dbFindTermByName(cv "zorchp")
Hope it helps.
