## Any good tutorial on spectre RF?

Hi, I am trying to understand spectre RF(pss/PAC/pnoise etc.). I would like to know if there is any good tutorial for that. I have some, but I haven't understood completely yet. Thanks!

## An issue with the noise summary tool of cadence

Is "noise summary" tool reliable?It is reliable in most cases. Show me analysis statement. I don't know what simulator you use. However I recommend you to set "augmented=off", if you use Autonomous-Shooting-pss/pnoise in Cadence spectre. Try the followings, if you use Cadence spectre. (1) (...)

Hi~ I simulate noise of a fully differential OPA switch cap structure using spectre pnoise . I have some problems First i use pss and pnoise analysis , then i want to see input referred noise , and it is impractical small , just about 20nV/Hz (better than IEEE papers so imust some where wrong.......) my clock 2MHz so (...)

## calculation of VCO output power in cadence spectre

Hi all, i have to calculate the output power of VCO in cadence spectre. i am using pss & pnoise analysis. Actually the Collpitts I/Q VCO (4.8Ghz) is designed by another person. I just know its specs. Its o/p swing is +0.75V to -0.75V. After doing the analysis i go to Results>Direct Plot>Main Form it asks for the resistance value Now (...)

## Phase noise of oscillators: Spectre RF or Goldengate?

Hello guys, Regarding phase noise simulation of oscillators: which tool (spectreRF - pss/pnoise analysis or GoldenGate) provides the most accurate results? Is there any material comparing the performance of both tools? Mathematically: do they compute the phase noise in a different way? Thank you very much, Best regards,

## Noise Simulation of Continuous Integrator and SC Amplifier

I am really facing problem while doing noise simulation of Continuous TIme Integrator. I am using spectre simulatior Which is correct method to do noise simulation ? noise in ADE or pss, PAC and pnoiseThey give same result as far as small signal operation. You post completely same question in the following.

## PSS + PNOISE and Transient Noise

Hi all, I have several questions which i will describe by topics. All the circuit design is made in Candence using spectre. 1 - As transient noise introduces noise in the transient simulation, I export the data to Matlab to perform the Jitter (RMS and Peak-to-Peak) calculations. How can I do this in Cadence ? 2 - How can be compared the resul

i think for jitter, you have to measure the eyediagram of the signal. for phase noise of a pll in cadence spectre, just do pss and pnoise analysis. actually you can get the help from CDSDOC file.

## About PLL phase-noise and tran simulation with spectre

Hi, I am designing a sigma-delta pll, and want to do the phase-noise simulation with spectre pss and pnoise. But there are some questions about it, and can anyone help to solve them, please. 1. when I use a OSC verilog-A code as the input reference frequency source, the pss simulation will be failed because of the (...)

## How to simulate choppered amplifier 's noise

for reducing flick noise of folded cascode amplifier, choppered with frequency 1Meg, with spectre rf simulation pss + pnoise, the output noise is as fig. a1 below shows , why not like a2 shows, is my simulation setup wrong?

## Phase noise to jitter conversion

Hi, I have an RC oscillator circuit for which I need to calculate the Peak-peak cycle jitter. I am using spectre simulator. But I cannot just run a transient analysis and find the same since the models I am using does not comprise the noise component. Hence I am running a pss-pnoise analysis to find the phase noise. And from the phase noise (...)

## pll veriloga simulation of pss,pnoise

Hi , When I simulate pss,pnoise of pll(VCO ,PFD ,Divider are written with veriloga), some error comes: Error found by spectre during periodic steady state analysis `pss'. Distributed components and components with hidden state are not allowed with this analysis -- analysis skipped. CP (...)

## simulating phase noise of differential LC-VCO in spectre

hi, i am wondering how to set up pss and pnoise in spectre. i have a 2.4ghz differential lcvco and i want to mesaure the phasenoise at 1mhz offset. right now the settings i have are as follows and ijust want to make sure htey are correct: pss: Beat frequency: 2.4G # of harmonics: 10 Accuracy: Conservative tstab: 100n (...)

## CADENCE SPECTRE HELP --- JITTER CALCUATION

i think there is another way for you to measure jitter by plotting eyediagram of the signal. in the ADE window, setup-->Enviroment Options, in the Enviroment Options dialogue box, fill in userCmdLineOption with -format psfbin, click OK to save, then run transient analysis in spectre. after finishing simulation, use cscope to open the result file

## how to simulation the performance of a auto-zero circuit?

well, if u r using only spectre (no spectre RF) then can put sin source representing noise signal and do transient analysis and examine the noise at the output (of course this can be done also with the dc offset). if u have access to spectre RF u can do pss then pnoise , and see the contribution of noise at (...)

## noise at the transient bias point

Can I simulate noise at any transient bias point in spectre? If it isperhaps, how can I do it? hi yes you can. pss and pnoise can help you to do this. jeff

hi can someone give me a paper about how to simulate a vco using spectre, how to get the Vin-Freg curve?how to do the pss ,pnoise???and what other simulation i must do?/ thanks a lot

## question about spectre PSS/Pnoise on Sampling & Hold Cir

I have run a pss/pnoise analysis for my sampling & hold circuit. The structure of circuit is switched capacitor, flip around with a gain-boosted amplifier. When printing noise summary, I found the top 8 noise contributers (they generated 70% of total noise) are not from main amplifier, but from gain boost amplifier (AUX amplifier). It's
