Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator vMMSIM 10.1

Course Description

In this course, you use the Virtuoso® Spectre® Circuit Simulator to run fast and accurate analog simulations. You learn Spectre syntax so you can read and generate a Spectre netlist along with the parameters associated with each analysis, including large and small signals like DC, transient, and AC. You also learn to use these parameters, along with available global options to set convergence and accuracy criteria.

You explore the compatibility of the Virtuoso Spectre simulator with popular SPICE simulation languages and how to use SPICE-based netlists to simulate in the Virtuoso Spectre environment. You run Spectre simulations, learn to save the results in different database formats, and plot waveforms in the Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis tool. You explore the Spectre Measurement Description Language (MDL) for pre- and postprocess Spectre simulations.

You learn Latin Hypercube Sampling and statistical methods to run Monte Carlo analysis. You also learn to run Spectre reliability analysis and use multithreading options with the Accelerated Parallel Simulator to simulate large netlists with and without parasitic reduction.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

o   Use Virtuoso Spectre syntax to read and write a netlist with subcircuits and Analog HDLs

o   Use the Virtuoso Spectre simulator from the command line and set simulation parameters and options

o   Analyze simulation results using the Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis waveform tools

o   Run Spectre simulation with SPICE netlists

o   Run large-signal analyses like DC and transient analysis

o   Use the Spectre MDL scripting language to create measurement aliases

o   Run small-signal/AC, transfer function, S-Parameter, noise, sensitivity, Fourier, stability, pole-zero, dcmatch and Monte Carlo analyses
