Virtuoso,PDK

  • IBIS model simulation

    I am designing a Data acquisition system with a Texas instruments ADC, Inamps and a ST micro electronics micro controller. I am getting spice models for my inamps, differential amplifiers etc. so that I could do SPICE simulation. I wish to see the output of my ADC if I am providing an input signal with...

  • Transitioning Your LEF-Based EDI System Design Flow to OpenAccess

    The trend of combining analog and digital circuits on a single chip has been growing for several years. More recently I'm seeing more and more designers improve their productivity by transitioning their designs to Open Access (OA) and taking advantage of the interoperability between Virtuoso and...

  • ARM TechCon: Inside Story of a 14nm FinFET Tapeout

    The next frontier in semiconductor design is the 14nm process node, and it will come with a new type of transistor, the FinFET. 14nm FinFET technology moved closer to reality at the ARM TechCon conference Oct. 30, 2012, where a Cadence sponsored technical session announced a 14nm test chip tapeout using...

  • TSMC Forum: An Update on 20nm, 3D-IC, and 16nm FinFETs

    TSMC, the world's largest semiconductor foundry, is thinking big when it comes to next-generation process technology. At the TSMC Open Innovation Platform (OIP) Ecosystem Forum Oct. 16, TSMC described reference flows for 20nm and for multi-die integration, and revealed that ARM and TSMC are working...

  • Aging simulation with RelXpert and Eldo

    Hello everyone I would like to simulate the aging behavior on circuit-level of the circuits built by bulk-Si CMOS technology. I know that there is a tool named “RelXpert” (combined with UltraSim) in Analog Design Environment (ADE) of Cadence Virtuoso can be used for aging (NBTI and HCI) simulation...

  • Problems Importing OA Design from Virtuoso into Encounter

    Hello, While trying to perform place and route using Encounter I'm "encountering" errors importing my design from Virtuoso. When I try to import the design, I get the following: Reading tech data from OA Library 'NCL' ... FE units: 0.001 microns/dbu, OA units: 0.001 microns/dbu...

  • Ten Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About SKILL

    The Cadence SKILL language has received some press lately as part of an ongoing debate over process design kit (PDK) standards. This post isn't about that. Rather, it's about the story behind SKILL, a venerable language that's far more than just a format for describing PCells in custom IC...

  • Bringing MEMS Design To The Mainstream

    Micro-electrical mechanical systems ( MEMS ) have been around for years, and have found their way into high-volume applications such as automobile air bag controllers, GPS systems, and inkjet print heads. But MEMS devices such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, RF switches and pressure sensors are not as...

  • Q&A: A Cadence View Of ‘Interoperable’ PCells

    If you’re involved in analog or custom IC design, you’ve no doubt read about “interoperable” parameterized layout cells (PCells) and process design kits (PDKs). What you probably haven’t heard is a Cadence viewpoint about these developments. The following Q&A interview...

  • OpenAccess, Its Just a Database…

    I suspect that in another year we’ll all stop talking about OpenAccess (OA) like it is something special and treat it the way it should be, that it is just another database. Having said that, I know I’m going to get plenty of email about my portrayal of OA from colleagues and others but that...
