Hello All ,
I have a script which I use to calculate a particular net's Net Length, total net resistance, Capacitance (w.r.t ground).
But the drawback is that I have to select the entire Net before invoking the "NetLength" Function.
So I want a script which can trace the entire net and give a list of metals, vias, instances that
belong to this net. i.e I will select any one metal/instance/via
of a net and the code should trace the entire net and give me the
NOTE: Instances here refer to instances/mosaics of vias.
Well, if the layout was created using Virtuoso XL, then this is easy - since all shapes on the net will be associated with the net in the database.Other than that, you could use Diva to extract a net - or you'd have to write something which traced the net - not that straightforward.Regards,Andrew.
