Dear All,

I am using the following technology file and reference files for layout purpose:

technology file: tsmcn65_9lmT2.tf

reference file : tcbn65gplus_200a/frame_only/tcbn65gplus

After running, i am getting these following errors regarding pitch area and AP.

Could someone help to resolve these issues ? and also if i ignore these warnings, will it be any effect on my design during the tap-out.

Your help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
