After mainly working with Mentor’s Calibre verification suite the last ten years or so, I got a bit spoiled with their simple ways of organizing files dependent on cellviews, etc. I like when all the physical verification files are stored in a neat place, such that I can easily erase/debug/copy from that area.
In my case, this would be something like:
are the library and cell names, as well as the run type (LVS/DRC/XRC/DMT/ANT, etc.), respectively.
This code snippets was initially suggested on one of the Cadence forums, but right now I missed the author. Anyway, it needed some adaptation, as it was slightly outdated...
(defun vuiUserDefinedSetupCB (vuiLVSForm)
(let ( (newDir "")
(if (equal vuiLVSForm->layoutSource->value "DFII")
(setq libName vuiLVSForm->layLibrary->value)
(setq cellName vuiLVSForm->layCell->value)
"/" libName "/" cellName))
(unless (isDir pvArea)
(csh (strcat "mkdir -p " pvArea)))
(setq newDir (strcat pvArea "/lvs/"))
vuiLVSForm->runDir->value = newDir
;; Then some more could be e.g.
;; vuiLVSForm->technologyField->value = "gpdk045"
;; vuiLVSForm->viewRules->value = nil
By adding this snippet to your start-up script, the trigger function will be called every time you open the Assura LVS form and some of the fields will be updated accordingly.
