TSMC 65nm Calibre dummy insertion tool
May 05th, 2019, 4:48am
 
Hi team,
I am using TSMC 65nm and trying to clear metal density errors with auto dummy fill. I have a file called "Dummy_OD_PO_Metal_Calibre_65nm.22b", which TSMC says this is the Calibre dummy insertion tool. I opened the file and changed the parameter of layout path as the directory to my library and layout primary as cell name

LAYOUT SYSTEM GDSII
LAYOUT PATH "/home/.../Receiver_2019(this is the lib name)"
LAYOUT PRIMARY "TOPLEVEL_PADS(this is the cellview name)"

Then I opened a terminal at the category of "Dummy_OD_PO_Metal_Calibre_65nm.22b" and type

calibre -drc -hier Dummy_OD_PO_Calibre_65nm.22b

The DRC run with an error: ERROR: Error RES2 on line 9359 of Dummy_OD_PO_Metal_Calibre_65nm.22b - undefined layer name parameter: M9x_TFRDMY_8.

Can anybody please give me some advice on how I can use the TSMC auto dummy fill. Thanks a lot.

MD

Hi MD,

It's hard to tell from your description. Couple of things jump out:
1. Are you sure you are using GDSII, as your Layout System command indicates, and not using OpenAccess directly?
2. Have you set the DRC rule switches correctly for you process?

Regards,
Satya

PS, this is probably not the right forum for this question
