  • User View: A 20nm Custom IC Constraint-Driven Flow

    If the semiconductor industry is going to ramp up for 20nm design, a custom IC flow that can handle this process node is essential. This flow will require more automation than previous nodes. In a recorded audio presentation at the Cadence web site Francois Lemery, member of the Technology R&D group...

  • High frequency quadrature VCO design with good phase noise

    Hello everyone I am a newbie engineer starting my career in RF IC design and working on designing a high frequency VCO (38 GHz) with good phase noise characteristics. I am using Cadence IC6.1.5-64b.500 version and spectre simulator for the schemtic design and simulations. I have to do everything from...

  • Any way to Abort Assura LVS run after input layers read ?

    We have a process with multiple variations that include slightly different input layers. To handle the variations within the same LVS file, we have switches. However, if a user is running process variation A and accidentally chooses the swtich to run variation B (having different input layers) , is there...

  • vdd not sensed in post-layout simulation

    Hi, I tried to do post layout simulation with extracted, symbolized inverter, however, I got the message during simualtion: Notice from spectre during topology check. Only one connection to node 'vdd!' I plot the output and confirmed that vdd is not applied to the internal transistors of the...

  • Custom Inductor | INDDEF layer | HitKit | Assura

    Hi, this post isin reference to http://www.cadence.com/community/forums/T/14022.aspx , where i described problems concerning an inductor that had been automatically generated by VPCD tool. Defining the layout of the inductor as a blackBox does not solve the problem, for assura does not recognize pins...

  • VXL - forcing conectivity of existing nets

    Hi, I had a Designer do some modification to a layout I created. They basically reordered a few devices for better matching. Now I find that the devices have been renamed but the metal paths connecting them have the old names and VXL is refusing to enable the 'Show Incomplete Nets' functions...

  • LVS Problem with Artist Flat Netlisting

    Hello, I encountered a LVS problem a week ago. I searched this forum before I post but I think my LVS problem is unique. Here is a section of the error log Begin netlist: Mar 27 11:49:11 2009 view name list = ("auLvs" "extracted" "schematic") stop name list = ("auLvs"...
