Physical device associations

If the physical cell contains devices, then this table will appear. Each device of a given type in the schematic is assigned a number, and devices extracted from the physical layout are assigned a (generally different) number.

An entry appears for each device extracted from the physical data. The first line for the device contains the device name and the physical index number. If the device has an electrical counterpart, the electrical device type (same as the physical name) and electrical name are printed on the same line, following a colon. The electrical name uses the SPICE convention. This line is followed by a listing of the device terminals, one line per terminal. The terminal name and group number are to the left of the colon. If the group is associated, the associated electrical node number (in parentheses) and name are given to the right of the colon. These lines are optionally followed by a listing of extracted parameter values for the device. The actual format and displayed parameter set is defined in the corresponding device block in the technology file.
