  • How to characterize Transistors for gm/Id based design.

    Hi, Q1. Can someone give the circuit for characterizing Transistors for gm/Id based design, as I found different circuits in differrent websites. Also what size of W should be taken when generating plots as I am using 180nm Technology. Q2. I am able to plot fT vs gm/Id for single length after going to...

  • Display of schematic name and page number on the symbol

    Hi, I ported a design from 6.1 to 5.1.41. The symbols in 6.1 have the following statements which are supposed to display schematic name and page number when the symbol is instantiated. dsp('sheetIndex) dsp('page) In the ported design, after instantiation, I get the following, *Error* eval: undefined...

  • What is the syntax for creating pins withing SKILL

    I tried accessing the documentation, but it seems to be unavailable at my university this year. I was just wondering what the syntax for creating a pin is. I think it is dbCreatePin( ) but i don't know the parameters. Also is there a way to specify what material/metal the pin is created on?

  • How to customize icfb start-up with 2 monitors?

    I have just started working with a 2 monitor PC system. I am running Windows XP locally, and connecting to the Linux server over XMing, or PuTTy. When I start icfb, the CIW and all pop-ups from the CIW are placed between the 2 monitors, as opposed to either the right or left monitor. How do I rectify...
