PnR using INNOVUS with scripts

In the previous tutorials, we have seen how to use Cadence INNOVUS GUI for placement and routing. But INNOVUS tool works better when used with scripts. It is convenient to use the script based placement and routing as numerous runs are needed to successfully verify an IC. This is also the industrial practice. In this tutorial, we have given a simple example of PnR using INNOVUS Scripts.  This will help the readers to run INNOVUS several times to meet the design constraints.

>>Source cadence.cshrc

>>innovus

The INNOVUS GUI will open. The design file and library files should be imported using global files as shown in the previous tutorial for design import. Once design import step is finished, innovus_script.tcl file can now be imported.

>>source innovus_script.tcl

The innovus_script file is shown below
