Hierarchical schematics in Data Sheet of Cadence ADE-XL and ADE-Explorer
May 17th, 2018, 8:41am
 
We can generate DATA Sheet in Cadence ADE-XL and ADE-Explorer.
Here hierarchical schematics are included.

My cells have multiple views of schematic and veriloga.
We can specify what view we use in simulation by switch view list or config view setting.

However generation of hierarchical schematics in Data Sheet of Cadence ADE-XL and ADE-Explorer ignores both switch view list or config view setting.

In my case, veriloga is preceded than schematic.

How can we specify what view we use for hierarchical schematics in Data Sheet of Cadence ADE-XL and ADE-Explorer ?

I just tried this (in IC617 ISR19) and it appears to be correctly honouring the views selected in the config.

I did a quick search (I'm a bit time limited because I'm in an airport) and didn't find any reported issues (I wondered whether it was using the top level schematic and not using the config when generating the schematic hierarchy in the data sheets in your case - maybe you're using an older version).

So I'd suggest checking with the latest hotfix of IC617 ISR19, and if it's still happening, please contact Cadence Customer Support as clearly it's a bug that should be fixed. It ought to work...

Regards,

Andrew.

Config view settings are reflected to netlist.
But they are not reflected to hierarchical schematic in Data Sheet.

Generation of hierarchical schematic ignores config view setting and uses order of "viewNameList" for cells which have multiple views

envSetVal("schematic" "viewNameList" 'string "veriloga schematic symbol")

And netSet is not reflected to hierarchical schematic in Data Sheet.

IC6.1.7-64b.500.17

I don't think it is old.

In that case, please report it to Cadence's customer support - assuming that this is not something that was fixed in the last couple of ISRs (which is possible - too much travel over the last few weeks has meant I've not been able to test this in an older version).

For me, I changed the config to either switch into a veriloga view or not, and the schematics in the data sheet when re-generated updated accordingly. I'm assuming there must be some complication caused by a difference between what I tested and what you're doing, and the bug only shows up in certain situations. I didn't have a chance to try out the netSet issue - but if it's wrong, then reporting to customer support is the right way to get it fixed.

Regards,

Andrew.
