With NCSU FreePDK45 only hspice model files are available and was wondering if someone has put effort for Spectre model files to be freely available? The Spectre simulator cannot be used with hspice model files and the hspiceD simulator is not supported by Cadence and we need to install that separately?
Another question, is it possible to use netlist generated by Calibre PEX extraction tool directly? I heard we need to generate Calibre View using PEX and then it can be used in Config View, is that correct? If that is true can we simulate the Calibre View using Spectre for FreePDK45 or still we need hspiceD simulator?
