The 16.5 release of Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) provides support for generic models. As you’ve seen in prior releases, ADW supports the typical Cadence SPB front-to-back models – symbols, footprints, etc. Now, we offer generic model support so you can construct new custom models like PSpice, IBIS and other simulation models.
Read on for more details …
We’ll illustrate the highlights of constructing a new model by implementing SI DML model.
In the ADW DBEditor, select File> New> Model Type:
Enter the Model Type Name (SI DML Model), the associated Tool Name (Signoise), the Model Type Abbreviation (DML):
For the Model Dependent of Product Version, select True (you must uprev with each tool release) or False (uprev of data is not required).
Establish the Model Classification per the usual process.
Create the library – identify the Model Type and Logical Library Name:
Establish the Library Flow, for example -
SI DML Model Flow in 16.5:
• New Model Flow
• ECO Model Flow
• Copy As Model
• Pre release/Release
• Library Distribution
As always, I look forward to your feedback.
