Course TitleVirtuoso AMS Designer vIC6.1
Course CategoryCustom IC Design – Virtuoso
Duration2 Days
Product VersionvIC6.1

The Virtuoso® AMS Designer course teaches you how to use the mixed-signal, mixed-language Virtuoso AMS Simulator. It also provides a brief introduction to the Verilog®-AMS mixed-signal modeling language. Lab exercises explore three different simulation use models: the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment, the Virtuoso AMS Designer graphical environment, and command-line control, including verification flow. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the Virtuoso AMS Designer course, you will be able to:


o       Run Virtuoso AMS Designer through typical simulations using command-line control, the Virtuoso AMS Environment, and the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment.

o       Switch between two analog solvers, Virtuoso Spectre® Circuit Simulator and Virtuoso UltraSim® Full-chip Simulator, to optimize simulation speed and accuracy.

o       Create configurations to allow easy replacement of behavioral models with more detailed schematic designs.

o       Create simple models with the Verilog-AMS modeling language.

o       Apply signal disciplines and control interconnect module placement.


This course is designed for developers who create designs for analog or digital ICs such as: 

o       IC Designers

o       Analog/Mixed-Signal IC Designers

o       Digital IC Designers

o       ASIC Designers

o       Design Engineers

o       Chip Designers

o       Layout Designers


o       Analog Modeling with Verilog-A
