    RF Library for Cadence Virtuoso 5.1 and 6.1 ? Reply

    Hi all,

     I am a postgraduate at RMIT university in Melbourne, Australia. I am doing courses related to using Cadence Virtuoso to design CMOS circuirts. This semester I am going to do a project, which I gonna use Cadence tools to design a RF transmission circuit. I just started to do some researches about RF ( I have no background abt this), and Cadence tools for RF design. I am following these tutorials from websites below( they use Cadence 5.1 for these tutorials)

     http://www.ek.isy.liu.se/courses/tsek03/LAB2_LNA_2011.pdf

     http://www.designers-guide.org/Forum/Attachments/LAB2_Mixer_Tutorial.pdf

     However in these tutorials they using RF Transistors from PRIMLIBRF library ( which I dont have in my library mangager). So i wasnt able to follow these tutorials 

    So my question is where I can find RF libraries for Cadence 5.1 or even better for version 6.1, cuz we are moving to version 6.1 and no longer use 5.1 in the future

     

    Thanks

     

    Thanh

    I think PRIMLIBRF is something local to your environment, it's not part of Cadece IC or MMSIM examples. In fact it seems as though you are reading tutorials written by a different university altogether so you won't even have these custom libraries (and perhaps PDKs) on your site. You might want to take a look at the example libraries in $IC/tools/dfII/samples/artist/ as well as the workshops in $MMSIM/tools/spectre/examples/SpectreRF_workshop. These examples make use of the Cadence Generic PDK 180nm (maybe a newer `process` now) and is included with the tools or you can download it from https://pdk.cadence.com/
