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 (G) XL environment and its corresponding assistants and workspaces to evaluate the Mismatch Contribution from devices and run Sensitivity Analysis on an op-amp design. You learn to interpret the Sensitivity Analysis results. You set up a local optimization run to find optimized parameters for your design and then create worst case corners before proceeding to run a high-yield estimation simulation. Toward the end of the module, you use manual tuning methods to fine tune your design parameters.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
Run sensitivity analysis and use different optimization methods to optimize your circuit parameters.

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.
