Cap extraction of an IC  PAD
Jun 08th, 2022, 8:36am
 
Hi, I want to extract the capacitance of an IC PAD. Unfortunately there are no pins and I cannot pass lvs and do extraction. I may use a metal res to  get a pin out and extract but are there better ways to do this?

Yes - do LVS and extraction using layout only, without doing cross-referencing to schematic - and you can get your parasitics for your design (do not create shorts or opens, or other wrong things - in which case, the results will be meaningless).
