What will happen if the pmos is connect to vss and nmos to vdd in an inverter layout?
You can refer to layout example in Jan Rabaey, "Digital Integrated Circuits 2nd Edition" Neil Weste, "CMOS VLSI Design A Circuits and Systems Perspective (3rd Edition)" Neil Weste, "Principles of CMOS VLSI Design" Baker, "CMOS Circuit Design, layout, and Simulation" You can use tools like LASI, Microwind, Cadence, or other ED
Hi, Our ciruit used a big inveretr as buffer to drive a ~10pF load cap to CMOS level. The working frequency is 155Mbps.The size of the inveretr is for PMOS 12/0.6,m=40 and for nmos,it is 12/0.6mm=20. The process is 0.6um CMOS. We feel puzzled for how to draw it in layout. There are two main problems. One is how to place the input and output
Hi, I am layout the output buffer whcih drive a ~10pF load cap at 80MHz. The output buffer size is for PMOS 12/0.6,m=40 and for nmos,it is 12/0.6, m=20. The max size of the W in my process is limited to Wmax=20. Anyone can see any risk for selction the multiple number is high to 40 for PMOS and 20 for nmos? Thanks in adavnce for (...)
Hallo and help me please...:cry: i have to make a layout of two stage amplifier and i use technology -TECH_C35B4- but i have some problem because when i go to extract the schematic from my layout i get the same problems: net_psub net_subtap:Causes multiple stamped connection net_psub net_subtap:has multiple stamped connection I have conne
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
LAT.3N P-well pickup OD to nmos space > 30 um Connect substrate to GND to do that put M1_SUB in the blank spaces and connect them to GND with metal 1. LAT.3P N-well pickup OD to PMOS space > 30 um Connect N-WELL of PMOS to its source to do this put M1_NWELL and connect to its PMOS's source (or VDD). Put M1_SUB contacts as many as po
i'am a beginner in layout i need help in 1.6u tech for layout on cadence vituosou ...i know how 2 use the tool but not the design i need 2 design simple nmos and pmos cells first give me material on different layers etc and on the tech files i need to consider for DRC.....a fast tutorial on layout
Hello, I have an question about the ESD. The picture I've attached is an ESD protection circuit for digital output. I've used this pad but I wanna change the circled nmos size of output inverter at this time because I need to drive more current than before. The problem I've encountered is this: increasing W or decreasing L. Which method i
I have a question to lay, because I don't know how full custom EDA tools recognise devices... when I design a inverter or a nmos layout, how IC cadence system recognise that my layout is a inverter or a nmos and how IC tool assign device characteristics, parassitic parameters, etc... (...)
Is it always that the number of PMOS and nmos transistors in a CMOS gate level netlist must be equal.If not please let me know, why? Thank you
Hi select (PMOS size / nmos size)=Up/Un Up and Un are mobility of P ans N. regards
it is related to layout and i want to know the channel length tracking problem faced while laying out the nmos and p mos say of an inverter
I'm learning layout. I'm doing my first inverter using a pmos and an nmos transistr from the library. I know that the pmos bulk have to be connected to vdd, the nmos bulk to gnd. That is not clear for me in the picture sowing the layout of the 2 transistors. I drawed the layout of the (...)
some inverters take the structure in the picture, why are the gate of PMOS and nmos not straight gate? and that only obtain longer width? Thanks
Hi, Thanks for the quick reply.Also happy that i made you understand my issue correctly My substrate connection for both the PMOS and nmos are connected correctly and it can be confirmed by my LVS match result for the individual inverters.I wouldnt have got the correct result if it has some wrong connections I am having
i have designed an inverter (5 pmos, 2 nmos), and their gates connect together. but when i run calibre PEX, it says that, there are two gates not connected, floating gate, but i connect them together indeed, and LVS is OK. why? it is very strange, has anyone met this problem before? pls help me. thanks.
Hi, The easiest way is to open Virtuoso from Composer window. Tools-> Design Synthesis -> layout XL. Then from layout XL got to Design -> Gen from source. Lets say you have an inverter in the Schematic window. After you do Gen from source it will place 1 nmos and 1 PMOS and all i/o pins. Press shift f to get the (...)
Hi All, If I have a inverter connected directly my pad, then how do I layout this inverter protecting from ESD and Latch Up issues ? please explain in details. consider for example W/L of PMOS = 200/0.5 amd W/L of nmos = 75/0.5. -- warm regards, krrao.
you just draw your PMOS and nmos on schematics symbols and then transfer it to layout using stick diagram. =) It is the same.. XD ---------- Post added at 04:13 ---------- Previous post was at 04:08 ---------- Your nmos gate will be conncted to your PMOS gate. Your Source of PMOS to +ve Power supply, Source
I think this isolated nmos is a conventional nmos in a P-Well (bulk connected to Vss), but that P-Well is inside an NWell. This N Well should be connected to Vcc. This means that any noise from the P-Substrate (the normal bulk for non isolated nmos devices) cannot get to the isolated P-Well as there is a reverse biased PN Diode. [url=images
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 (...)
Hello, I`m new, studying electronics and this beginning has been though. I`ve tried to create a Inverted using gpdk180 technology, but the "NWELLterm NWVIA : No Stamped Connections" keeps popping up every time I make the layout for the PMOS. I similar problem was occurring with the nmos part. It showed up the "PSUB SUBVIA : No Stamped Con
Hello, I have circuit in CADENCE, in which I use a cmos inverter with 5 finger for pmos and 4 finger for nmos. I have another PMOS in the same design with 10 fingers. When I do the LVS, it fails because it can not relate the inverter in the layout to the inverter in the schematic. and says the instance is (...)
Hi, I am using Assura RCX to carry out parasitic extraction of an inverter layout. Cadence icfb version I am using is IC5141USR1. The tool is extracting the layout successfully, but the extracted view shows nmos and PMOS symbols in place of metal layers. Parasitics (resistors and capacitors) symbols are present in the (...)
Usually people put PMOS on top and nmos on bottom, but in makes no difference. You do your layout how you feel it should be made. Yes Nwell and Ntub are the same thing. I did not mean that you should change the transistors. I meant that you should change the substrate contacts. In Virtuoso, I think the default shortcut for placing contacts is
it seems a problem for ur circuit. when the source voltage is 0, the nmos is turned on, there is a current flow through the resistor and nmos transistor, the output voltage is dependant on the resistor ratio. so the resistor should be large. It is not easy to work at the high frequency
I've seen one 1.2um project inverter nmos: w/l=1.1um/1.2um pmos: w/l=2.2um/1.2um
a+(b+c)'+c = a+(bbar.cbar)+c Take + as parallel and . as series, so 4 pmos transistors are arranged as shown below a b c (a in parallel with c and parallel with b and c which are in series) c ( a+(b+c)'+c ) ḃar= abar.(b+c).cbar therefore 4 nmos transistors are arranged as abar b and c in parallel (a

Dear All, I have attached the three diagram of VCO .No.1 is VCO for nmos only tailed bias VCO. No2 is differetial VCO . No3. is Oscillator from cross couple inverter. Question: why they use 4 terminal nmos as varactor ??what is the advantage of this .? Question :In No.3 , I know the top PMOS is cross coupled and what is the function (...)
what do you mean p-cell and n-cell, PMOS and nmos? i think if you tied n-tap (N-well for PMOS) and p-tap (p-sub for nmos) to VDD and GND, respectively, you've done with the inverter.
some comments: this layout maybe could pass DRC but is wierd. the spacing of the vias on the metal seems not minimum spacing and not necessary, should put more contacts on the active areas of the PMOS and nmos to VDD and GROUND, respectively, better use at least two contacts to connect poly gate.
Dear Everyone I recently downoaded a new PDK which is AMIS 0.5um. I use Cadence 5.1.41, USR6. I am using Calibre to run LVS. My LVS rule file is lvs.ctrl which will invoke calibreEXTc5.rul and lvs.include. At first, I did a simple inverter with enm(nmos) and epm(pmos). It failed LVS and the errors are that it cannot recognise the nmos (...)
"Multiple Stamped Connections" means that you have multiple nets connecting to the bulk. In your case, I believe, the nmos transistor does not have a bulk connection.
