i have a list of cellnames . I need to lookout for these cells inside a layout having lot of hierarchies . Currently I used lesearchierarchy() to get these cells or instances coordinates. I need to get these cells cordinates a/c to current hierarchy . I gone through dbconcatetransform() but didn't get idea how to implement this . Please let me know if anyone dealt with this before .
There is solution which is pretty close to what you want:
SKILL script to find and highlight a particular cell instance in a given layout cellview hierarchy, print its hierarchical path and coordinate with respect to top level
Only flaw is the function CCSinstQuery(..) expects exactly one cell name so you'd have to call it for each and every cell name.
I couldn't access the link shared . If possible can you share the script here.
This script is on support.cadence.com and we are not supposed to make it available outside.So you need to get a COS (or COS Lite) account which requires either a valid maintenance contract or you need to be from a University.
