Length : 1/2 day
For classroom delivery, this course is taught as half day session (4 hours).
In this course, you use the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment (ADE) XL environment and its corresponding assistants and workspaces to analyze transistor-level designs. You visualize the waveform results in the Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis (ViVA) XL tool. You learn the sampling methods used in Monte Carlo analysis and run corresponding simulations. You post-process Monte Carlo results and learn to create statistical corners.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Apply different sampling methods and run Monte Carlo simulations.
Software Used in This Course

You should have experience with the related software or complete the following courses:
If you have not taken these courses, then you need the equivalent experience in design entry with Virtuoso Schematic Editor L and XL and basic simulation with ADE L. This also implies that you have experience in analyzing simulation waveforms using a waveform viewer/editor. You can also meet this requirement by having taken the ADE IC 5.1.41 course in the past, or by having substantial experience using ADE 5.1.41 in running simulations.
