    Probing extracted layout NETs and CURRENTs - How to?

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know if someone could help me. I want to probe dc operating points of extracted view. Do you know how this is done?

    Thanks

    What tools are you using for simulation and extraction? Dependent on that you have different means of back-annotation to your original schematic/layout and can (or cannot) directly probe in the extracted view (PVS/Assura). Using calibre requires a different approach.

    Are you doing RC extraction or just capacitive extraction? The latter is a bit simpler as the node names are often consistent. But since you aim for DC operating points, I assume you run R extraction of some kind.
