    how to use different models for different blocks in a config view simulation Reply

    Hi all,

    My situation is:

    The PDK requires that for schematic level simulations, pre-layout device models should be used; for post-layout simulations, post-layout models should be used. I have a config view, in which some blocks are in schematics and others are in PEX calibre view.

    How can I specify different models for different blocks?

     Thank you very much!

    ADE GXL has a capability called "MTS" (Multi-Technology Support) which could be used for this. You can assign different model files for different blocks this way...

    Which version are you using and in which tool are you currently running the simulation?

    You might also want to ask the PDK provider what they expect you to do in such situations!

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    MTS. I'll try that.

    I am using  Virtuoso 6.1.5-64b. And the tool I'm running the simulation with is ADE XL.

    Thank you!
