I am facing a problem with the layout generated by Encounter. I am unable to route the design properly. After setting up the Floorplan of the design when I place the Standard Cells, it also routes the metals and the metals are overlapped. Also it doesn't use the standard rules like using M1 Horizontal and M2 Vertical. I am not sure why it does so and how could I overcome this issue.
I am attaching a pic of the layout as well.
To sum up my answer in the other topic, it is normal behavior for trial route, which is sometimes launched after placing the design. Use nanoroute to fix this situation.
About the metal used, you can set them for both trial route and nanoroute. For nanoroute you have 2 parameters in the form which are "bottomlayer" and "top layer". Just set those parameters to any numbers you want, in accordance with the level ofmetallization you want to use (eg: "bottom layer" 1 (means metal 1) "top layer" 3 (means metal 3)
You can also set those parameters in "Options"/"Set Mode"/"Mode Setup"/"TrialRoute" and "NanoRoute"
