Hello All, I use the following flow for analog LVS: • I open the schematic cell in xschem and press netlist, and file1.spice is generated • I open the .mag cell in magic, and do: ◦ extract all ◦ ext2spice lvs ◦ ext2spice --> this latter generates file2.spice • Then I do: netgen -batch lvs file1.spice file2.spice /usr/local/share/pdk/sky130A/libs.tech/netgen/sky130A_setup.tcl For the LVS to succeed, I need to comment the subcircuit wrapper in the magic-generated file... is there a more straightforward way to do this? I tried using the "Simulation --> LVS netlist" option in xschem but it's not working. Any help would be really appreciated!

You could use my script which automates the LVS process nicely. https://github.com/hpretl/iic-osic/blob/main/iic-lvs.sh

@User: The better way to do it is to select
Simulation
->`LVS netlist: Top level is a subckt` in xschem before hitting the
Netlist
button, so that xschem produces a netlist with a subcircuit wrapper. This is better than removing the subcircuit wrapper from magic (which, if needed, can be controlled by the
ext2spice subcircuit
command option in magic).
