Star RCXT issue with standard cells
Feb 15th, 2008, 2:39pm
Hi all,

We are trying to run Star-RCXT on a mixed-signal layout that includes digital standard cells that we are not provided full layouts for.  i.e. the poly layer is missing.

We want Star-RCXT to just ignore the standard cells but it isn't working.  This is preventing Star-RCXT from successfully extracting and back-annotating our design.  In Star-RCXT, I have set the "SKIP_CELLS" command appropriately, but the report file says:

WARNING: SKIP_CELLS list member "std_cell_no_poly" is not an equivalence point and will be ignored.

The resulting extracted netlist flattens the standard cells and is missing the transistors.  Has anyone else ever seen this?  Any ideas how to fix it?  Thanks so much in advance!
