Hi ,all
since i want to transfer our design(schematic) from one fountry to another(both are 0.13um process,but obvious different pdk and models). if done by hand , it's a big job. someone told me use lib manager-->rename reference library. it works , but many parameters transfer worng(eg. width,length,fingers).
so it seems need script with skill ...
have anyone done it before? pls give me some guide or reference.
thanks!


Regards
Fi

Try copying your schematic into the new process environment, then doing a rename reference library. After doing a rename reference library, open the schematic view and confirm that the reference library has been changed by checking the properties of one of your instances. Next, click on: Edit --> Replace
In the "Search For" and "Replace With" fields, select "instName" from the drop down lists. Enter the name of the relevant instance from the old process in the "Search for" field, and the instance name of the new process in the "Replace With" field. This should ensure that the instances are correct, but i'm not sure whether the correct values for each of the parameters will be transferred correctly.

An easy way for simulation is to change model name in model file.
Pls use "replace" command.
