@User: You can run your local magic install with
-rcfile
to point at the
.magicrc
file associated with the technology. For example, EDITED (if you have followed the instructions on the README, the rcfile should be there):
Copy code
magic -rcfile /path/to/openlane_working_dir/pdks/open_pdks/sky130/sky130A/libs.tech/magic/20200508/sky130A.magicrc spm.gds

After completion of flow.tcl without any errors, ran the magic -rcfile which returned empty gds. How can figure out what went wrong. Below is the snapshot

@ArunAshok: The GDS file should be placed under
designs/spm/runs/<tag>/results/magic
; can you confirm that there is a GDS file there?

You would need to point at it in your command: e.g.,
Copy code
magic -rcfile /path/to/openlane_working_dir/pdks/open_pdks/sky130/sky130A/libs.tech/magic/20200508/sky130A.magicrc designs/spm/runs/<tag>/results/magic/spm.gds
Is that what you're doing?

I ran this magic -rcfile /path/to/openlane_working_dir/pdks/open_pdks/sky130/sky130A/libs.tech/magic/20200508/sky130A.magicrc spm.gds
i get it,, 😞
But again an error

Since it says technology "minimum", it didn't load the right "sky130A" tech file. Are you pointing at the .magicrc file correctly?

What's the full command you're using to look at the GDS?
Also, no worries; glad to help:)
