I have designed a sram using cadence Virtuoso. I dont know how to test the memory. Basically I want to test each and every memory location, but I am not sure how to generate the input signals. I tested every cell using the stimuli option in the ADE, but when it came to system level, I cannot generate the signals I wanted using stimuli.

It looks like what you are saying is right. The power pins on the sram may be quite close which is causing this problem.
1) One way to resolve this issue may be , creation of power ring around the memory, and extend the power pins outside to connect to this ring. You will have to put two rings, one for VDD and another for VSS.
2) Once I work

Assura and Diva both can generate extrated view or analog_extracted view, which are used to be invoked in postlayout simulation in the Analog Design Environment (Artist).
However, if I want to do the same thing with Calibre, how to generate these views?
In fact, I only see netlist generation functions in Calibre interactive PEX.
