“The training was super! I totally enjoyed the atmosphere and HOW MUCH I could learn! The trainer was very supportive and also solved tasks which were out of course scope! Thanks a lot!”


(Sabine Salzmann, Infineon Technologies, March 2013)

Course Description

In this course, you use the Virtuoso® Analog Design Environment L software to set up and control analog and mixed-signal simulations. You run analog simulations using the Spectre® simulator. You also explore the Spectre Turbo and UltraSim simulators. You explore and run simulations with the Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator (APS). You display and analyze simulation results in the new Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis XL waveform display tool that is introduced in the IC 6.1.5 release. You run specialized simulations, including device checking and DC match. You use Virtuoso options to run electromigration and IR-drop analysis. You apply the OCEAN scripting language to run simulations in batch mode.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

o   Simulate circuits with the Virtuoso Spectre Circuit simulator, Spectre Turbo, UltraSim full-chip simulator and the Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator

o   Analyze simulation results with the Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis XL waveform display tool

o   Modify output waveforms using the calculator and available assistants and workspaces.

o   Use the Direct Plot utility

o   Use dependent expressions to create and set outputs

o   Run parametric and stability analyses

o   Use the Component Description Format (CDF) to modify component parameters

o   Use the Hierarchy Editor to create design configurations

o   Use macromodels, subcircuits, and inline subcircuits in your design

o   Determine IR-drop and electromigration issues in a design layout

o   Use the Open Command Environment for Analysis (OCEAN) scripting language to run batch simulations
