I am trying to convert the tool flow from mixed cadence and Synopsys tools to only Synopsys tools and have a question related to the technology files for the process technology. Is the technology file format for cadence and Synopsys tools the same or different.
If i have the (...)

You can find a detail example for corner set-up at :
In this free design, you can download the whole circuit simulation set-up and learn how to run corner simulation in cadence.

I encountered an interesting problem here.
u create a schematic, u can change the size of MOS as u wish,at this time the pdk is working properly;
while u step in analog envrioment, generate the netlist of schematic , if u want to change the size of mos (such as W,L,FINGER,MLTI),an error occured :

Hi, this is my first post here, and I am new in layout, I just finished a course on layout design, 8 mouths, now I installed fedora core 4 and cadence ic5141 on it,(tried ubuntu 6.06, FC5, no go, seems FC4 is the only one can accept ic5), I got almost all help tips from here, and I am about to ask more, sorry about it, I should contribute more late

i m making a asynchronous fifo in cadence the time of simulation this is giving the same error. if it is not according to the particular process technology parameter then what should i do for this .
plz reply as soon as possible .i will be remain very thankful to u.

Please let me know if there is any form in the tool cadence SoC encounter where we can declare no. of routing layers for our design with limited no. of metals say 5.
But my tool & technology supports 8 Layer Metal.
One solution what I found is during design Import we can call technolgy file(.lef) of say 5 Layer metal.
Is there any

I am using cadence 514 version i think.
there is a parametric analysis function, but i could not sweep corners like ss, typical ff.
how could I make it beside ocean script?

can anyone please help me , that my set up time is independent of capacitive load and i am not getting any explanation for that. i extracted my h spice net list from cadence virtuoso layout editor with 45nm technology.also, my setup time is linear with data transition time up to 150 p transition time(data) it possible? any exp

I am trying to simulate three inverters connected in sequence using cadence ams simulator
and a stimulus file that drives the input with a vpulse.
I cannot make it work. The input is not driven and stays at 0.3V with vdd at 1v. (All views are schematic)
I use the same stimulus file with simulator spectre and the simulation is OK!

after installing a technology file u must add the path to its directory by Library Path editor, after that u can reach the components of the process.
the environmet variables u have attached is necessary for launching the cadence tools NOT the technology file!

IBM kits only support Calibre (Mentor Graphics), Hercules (Synopsys) and Assura (cadence) for physical verification. As per MOSIS website, 12SOI supports Calibre, Hercules and Quartz (never heard of it). The environment setup for Calibre and Assura are provided with the PDK. Calibre supports DRC, LVS and parasitic extraction (xRC), and can be easi

i'm pretty sure you're gonna have a tough time (if not you'll give up) trying to simulate with pspice. there just aren't any models. you will need to use cadence spectre, synopsys hspice or mentor eldo simulators. those are supported by tsmc pdk.

Astro (Synopsys) uses a .tdf file to get the input arrangement of I/O cells.
I suppose there was a demand for conversion between the tools previously, although I think a LEF-DEF usage would seem more efficient.
But you know how this industry is, Synopsys acquires someone, cadence acquires someone... and pretty soon, you have a bunch of d

I am designing a circuit using AMI 0.6 micron technology in cadence.
To design the circuit theoretically, I have a set of equations for gain, BW etc etc..
I need the values of process transconductance parameters kn,kp for the AMI 0.6u process and also the value of lambda (channel length modulation).
Can anybody help me out on this?

Sorry,i am not familiar with such a QRC setup...with the settings i see mainly in the first tab i doubt if you can perform an extraction in this best recommendation is to review the cadence QRC manual (located in your Assura installation directory) along with your technology training guide/manuals for a proper extraction procedure.

I have a vhdl file (behavioral .. if then ...) that i would like to synthesize with specific logic gate from my cadence Design Kit library.
I am not sure where to start, it would be great if someone can direct me or show me the flow to do that .
my vhdl is only combin logic but i don't know how to link it to my cadence DK library ?
