    Using spice in cadence Reply

    Hello All,

    I'm trying to use a spice netlist directly in the ADE.
    It works well using simple spice models like transistors, diodes...
    But could someone help me on how I have to implement a schematic in order to use a spice subcircuit?


    I have the following subcircuit writen in a scs file:

    simulator lang=spice
    .SUBCKT My_MOSFET 1 2 3
    ...
    ...
    .ENDS

    where nodes 1 = drain, 2 = gate, 3 = source.

    How can I link the nodes 1, 2 and 3 to the terminals a cadence schematic/symbol?
    Or do you have another mean to use a spice netlist? (the spice-spectre conversion spectrespp fails).

    Thanks for your help.
    Best regards,

    Axel

    Hi Axel,

    Just create a symbol for it and then reference the subckt with a "model" CDF param.

    Please see the following Sourcelink Solution:
