Extract Netlist


In the Extraction tab of the netlist tools you will find a Build-Connection feature. Based on the layer set, this feature will detect will shapes in the design are connected. Connection to devices is detected. A device connection requires the use of LayoutEditor or the Devices Extrion to extract the devices. From this connection information, an extracted netlist will be built. Previously extracted netlists will be removed for this cell. The extracted netlists can be viewed by the Edit Netlist feature.

Net Highlight

The Net Highlight feature is located next to the Build Connection feature. If no connection information is present, the Build Connection feature is triggered. In the Net Highlight mode, if a shape of the net is clicked a complete net will be highlighted. A click in the Route tab on a net name will highlight this net.


Layout versus Schematic (LVS)

With the LVS feature the extraced netlist is compared with the loaded/schematic netist. Any differences are listed, incorrect nets and devices are also marked in the lists. A click on a list item will show the violation / the affected device.
