Hello, I am facing a problem while doing a post layout simulation of a simple inverter chain.I ran a transient analysis on current through voltage supply node(minus terminal) with an intention to know the current flowing through the circuit at different instant of time. Below is my Test Bench circuit. 110156 Unf
Read Alan Hastings "The art of analog layout".
Where - i.e. from which tool - didn't you get correct results? Simulation, layout creation, or Dracula LVS? May be the used tool doesn't (yet) know - or cannot assign - these Finfet parameters.
Designed one layout of CMOS inverter in L'edit software. Its extract file showed three Parasitic Capacitors and the last capacitor was between the VSS and 0 (VSS = Drain of NMOS). Wanted to know how to use this capacitor which is between VSS and GND??
I have the skill file for the layout of a simple inverter chain. Do anybody have any idea how to do the DRC, LVS checks for the layout and thereby do the extraction followed by post layout simulation to get the AC response through a script?? There are ways to get the ac responses for schematics from OCEAN scripts. So is it (...)
Hello all. I finished my layout for an inverter a couple of hours ago and ran DRC and LVS with no errors (they were successful). I then needed to make a layout for an xor gate which used two inverters. After I used the "pick from schematic" option, I instantly ran a DRC check, which then gave 228 "Edge not on grid" errors. (...)
hi, You can find the minimum width of pmos and Nmos by designing a inverter whose switching point is middle of your supply voltage and Make sure the width of the Mos has atleast two contacts in the layout... it is useful for the designing.. Thanks...
Hi, I am new to Cadance analog design flow. I am trying to buid a CMOS common source apmlifier. Library used is gdpk180nm. I have sussessfully built the circuit in Virtuoso Schematic editor and simulated it in ADE XL. When we try to do layout in Virtuoso layout Suite, it is giving a DRC error "N+SD to Psub tap spacing must be <= 10.0 um". Assura
Changing the MOSFET won't help. The ferrite might. Board layout also can contribute to the ringing.
What you are trying to do is called reverse engineering. You have to draw schematics after studing board and then draw layout with component placement. Then study the board behavior with different inputs and evaluate the timing and wave shapes of different outputs. Evaluate working flow and block diagram the try to code the mcu.Sometimes it is easy
Hello, I keep getting the above error when attempting to run Assura DRC on a simple layout of an inverter. I am using IBM 90nm technology. Additionally, here are some of the errors in the Cadence terminal: *No tech lib map file 'assura_tech.lib' or 'pvtech.lib' found. *No rule sets can be created because there are no defined Assura technologies
Hi. I am simulating a cmos ring oscillator at the schematic level. I want to simulate it with some "interconnect parasitic capacitance" at the output of each inverter. What do you think can be an approximate value of this capacitance that I need to put at the output of each inverter so that when I do the layout, there is not very much (...)
I have two 3-phase inverters. One is from Semikron (with IGBTs, rated 600V, denoted as Semikron-inverter in this post). Another one is a home-made prototype. The schematic of the home-made prototype inverter is shown in Figure 1, while its physical layout is shown in Figure 2. The specifications of the power switches (...)
I am doing a project on standard cell. Gate is Nand3x4 . The problem is that i need to accommodate layout within PR boundary which 5.44x2.88 (fixed) . I tried layout after splitting (folding )Nmos and Pmos gate , but splitting increases my area & it crosses PR boundary. How can i reduce my number of transistor. What are different layout (...)

Hai, I want to make the layout of a delay element. So first i made the layout of an inverter. And i used the symbol in the schematic of delay element and from that i generated the layout. Next i want to do some optimization using hierarchy. For example i wanted to make the nwell common for all pmos transistors and use (...)
Hi! I am trying to develop a power inverter. But first , I need to optimize the layout in terms of resistance, inductance and current crowding. I am working with Q3D (though I am not sure if this the right tool). I will be using SiC JFET dies for the switches. In the material selection guide, SiC does not exist. But for the values of conductivity
Hi All, I am using this book: Basic CMOS Cell Design by Etienne Sicard. I'm trying to simulate everything for better understanding. At page 96, Section 4.3 there is an introduction to the "inverter layout". My question is about this: p-channel MOS switches half the current of the n-channel MOS. I understand the reason: let's sa
Hi all, I am new with the layout. I finished a tutorial of layouting an inverter. Now I am doing a layout for a very simple circuit (1*NMOS + 1*cap). I got 2 errors from the DRC (with switch of "no_coverage ") which are: Figure Causing Multiple Stamped Connections. Figure Having Multiple Stamped Connections. Could any (...)

Hey guys, I am new to layout and I'm using the mentor tools to make te layout of an inverter. I am not using any models for the transistors so Ill be drawing them from scratch. Does anyone have a basic tutorial that can help me with that??? Thanks alot
I am designing a CMOS inverter, for which i need to estimate the interconnect parasitics prior to the layout-phase so i can accurately estimate the delay. But, I was wondering how I could determine the dimensions of the interconnect in the design phase itself. accurately estimate is a wooden iron (Sid
Hello, I have a general question about DRC. I was using Synopsys Hercules to run DRC on a simple inverter circuit built with 65nm IBM PDK (cmos10lpe) and I got some errors. Then I decided to erase everything and instantiate a single cell (nfet) and run DRC on it. To my surprise, I still get many of the same errors, which is really strange sin
It is used when you want to increase transistor width but space is limited for some reason. This technique is used especially in memory layout design when word line driver or sense amplifier should match the memory cell width and length. On your picture it seems a Standard Cell layout with fixed row heigth but transistor width should be little
Just place a pin (using the correct layer for the pin) in the layout and it should be fine. Sometimes LVS errors aren't as straight forward as the error appears. A floating metal layer may be a wrong pin layer, or it may be a missing via elsewhere etc. It's a bit of a black art sometimes.
hello all I have some strange results in post-layout hspice simulation and can not understand the problem. maybe you know more about ... so, f,e, I have a simple ring oscillator when I making a hspice simulation, the oscillation frequency is 7.8ns but when I making the post-layout hspice simulation (of 'the same' ring oscillator) I have a 10.8n
try and do some search on sg3524 and sg3525. these are components that are very good for building inverters you just have to do some little calculation to bring it to life. hope to load up some circuits for u. later Added after 1 hours 14 minutes: Hello there,I am Randolf F.Abadier, I hope th
Hi Members, I'm planning to draw the layout of a circuits based on RF CMOS transistor. I'm looking for a material or tutorial showing how to do that and the consederations to take into account.

Hi fellow friends and professionals I am a final year student and have been shortlisted for an interview for VLSI layout engineer position next week. I have prepared on some topics; ?MOSFET characteristics, operations, cross sectional view ?Digital logic gates, multiplexers, boolean algebra, flip flops and latches ?RLC circuit, diode char
dear all We should layout a vco. the frequence is 1M. While layouting the vco. what sides should we take care? The signal path, or power path, and any others.
if you want to use a pure digital vco, u can use some kind of a latch structure. You can refer to the book, cmos design and layout by baker,li,boyce. In the chapter called pll design, you will find this circuit.You can also use a simple current starved inverter which is very simple to design. Thanks Amarnath
I am just wondering why in many standard cell library in an inverter layout the gate is not straight rather like a snake. What is the advantage of this structure???
For typical interviews, I think some questions relating to the following maybe necessary (1) Understanding of 2-stage Op-Amp design (2) Understanding of current bias and bandgap reference design (3) Understanding of simple inverter transfer function and the operation region w.r.t. each input voltage range. (4) Understanding of layout matching e
