Hello Cadence community.
Our foundry provides a 150nm process, and our designs are not high-speed by any means. They have not provided a noise library for use with SOC Encounter v9.12 (.cdb or .udn). I have tried to create a cdb file using the make_cdb utility, but there seems to be a major version problem with our spice model file, so I have not had any success with that.
I would like some advice as to what I should do. I know noise analysis plays a bigger role the smaller the process geometry is, but should noise be a concern in 150nm? Our foundry has provided other data files for the Cadence flow, so is the fact that they omitted a noise library a sign that it is not necessary? Is the Liberty timing library (.lib) enough?
