  • CPF Low Power Simulation with Analog and Mixed-Signal Design (CPF-AMS)

    We have been talking about low power simulation and the Common Power Format (CPF) for five or six years now. It’s become popular in most digital designs thanks to a mature methodology and design flow. However, more and more SoC designs are coming up with mixed-signal content. How will low power...

  • TFT and BSIM device equations

    Hello everyone I am working TFT circuit design. According to Virtuoso® Simulator Circuit Components and Device Models Manual Product Version 7.1.1 June 2009, Cadence Spectre and UltraSim simulators support RPI TFT model. The equations of RPI TFT models are listed in the above file. I created the...

  • Confused TechFile & Simulation

    Hello, I designed my own transistor layout by coding a SKILL pcell. The next thing should be a own spectre modle, but the only thing I can do right now is: -create a schematic view for my layout which would include a transistor out of my techfile Normaly I thought I would connect some kind of spectre...

  • Spectre simulation of calibre extracted layout

    Hi, I am trying to make a calibre extraction of the R+C+CC parasitics and I am getting some strange results. The layout is DRC and LVS clean and when I extract the layout without parasitics, my simulations work well. When I extract C+CC it also works well, but then when I include the R parasitics, the...

  • Export data to CSV format

    I'm trying to export I-V curves from the Spectre Simulator into CSV files. However, the save/save as menus only allow for saving the data in a figure-format file or as a PNG/TIFF/Image File. Is there a mode, command, or code sequence that would allow me to export my data to CSV or other data formats...

  • My Favorite nport Settings for Spectre and SpectreRF

    The nport component located in analogLib can be used in circuits for Spectre and SpectreRF simulations. It is a scattering parameter (S-parameter) based distributed multi-port element. The nport truly is a "black box"… It can be used to model dramatically different systems, such as:...

  • Tips for Simulating a Transmit Mixer in SpectreRF

    Some typical questions that I receive from newer SpectreRF users are: How do I simulate a transmit mixer? How do I look at both upper and lower sidebands? How do I set up my simulation for PAC and Pnoise? When I plot my data, how do the indexes correspond with the sidebands? Hopefully the following will...

  • SPICE Pioneers Reveal History of 40-Year-Old Circuit Simulator

    There aren't many currently used EDA tools that are celebrating 40 th anniversaries this year, but the SPICE circuit simulator, first released by the University of California in 1971, is. SPICE creators and innovators spun compelling and amusing tales of the development of the venerable circuit simulator...

  • Q&A: IBM Modeling Team Describes Advanced SOI Qualification Flow In Cadence MMSIM Platform

    Circuits implemented using sub-micron technologies require designers to meet tighter and tighter specifications despite increasing statistical variation and complexity. High correlations between actual silicon and circuit verification using advanced SPICE models are therefore a must to ensure first pass...

  • spectre: fsdb output directly out of ADE

    Hi all I'm working on a project based on IC6.1.3 with default MMSIM7.1 (which I can switch up to 10.1) and I'm currently facing some large simulations and the waveform viewer is giving me the creeps ... Therefore I tried some different formats that can be selected in the ADE Output Menu (sst2...
