Hello Dimitri, Luke & Al,
There is no urgency for you to rename that signal. Just be aware that in
the complete chip, it is renamed into "out_v".
I should have finally solved the DRC errors, the problem was mine,
the GDS parser was not handling correctly GDS records PATH of type 4,
that is with variable extension length. But the "vendor" driver seems
to like them a lot (to make just straight wires, which is overkill).
So the previous errors about misaligned rectangles are corrected
and the METAL1 DRC errors goes away. I did perform a DRC on the
PLL GDS as driven *back* by Coriolis. Seems OK. Along with a visual
inspection with KLayout no obvious differences.
*But*, now I get LUP.1g and LUP.2g errors in the PLL, when inserted
into the chip. From what I understand, some kind of guard ring is
missing. The complete GDS file is my account ~jpc/chip_r.gds with
the top cell named "chip_r". Could you take a look and see what's
wrong. It is not impossible that I still botch your PLL GDS, so
don't hesitate to check that the layout is really what you did
For Luke, can you tell me when the updated netlist with the PLL
connected is available ?
