Hello all,

I would like to know if there is an option in SoC Encounter to place&route some special cells manually (I need to specify there position in the core and do manual routing for them) and then place&route the whole design based on this ?

If yes, how to keep these special cells and there routing wires fixed during timing optimization, CTS,...etc ?

Thanks

Yes, you can place any cell any way you want. You can do this on the GUI by dragging and dropping, or scripting it with TCL.

The process is the same: set the location first, then change the placement status from unplaced to fixed. This usually does the trick.
