## [Moved]: intrinsic gain and (Vgs, Vds,W/L) relationsihp

As shown in the bellowing figure, I plot the intrinsic gain of three nmos transistor with 180nm process. The Vds of the three transistors are set to 0.75V, and then I sweep the Vgs voltage of all of them from 0 to 1.5V. (The Y-aix is the intrinsic gain, and the X-aix is the Vgs.) Their size are 5/0.5, 5/0.5, and 50/10, with the um unit. From

## For cmos LNA building LC tank in AWR

Sorry, I wrote this informations the previous post. So,I couldn't think that. I used 180nm Cmos process and apply the folded cascode LNA with Mds Technique (modified derivative superposition). The center frequency is 5GHz. I import the spice netlist in Awr, Level 49. I obtain some values but the gain is very odd. So I think t

## How to convert a circuit from old technology to new technology

Dear all I have a question how to convert a circuit from old technology to new technology. Let say I have a bandgap design using 250nm technology and want to design to 180nm. How I can do it: Do I have to design from beginning using 250nm schematic?. Assume both process bandgap take out 1.2v Thank you

## Simple distortion model for modern MOSFET

Hi, Using the square law model, one can derive the distortion of a differential pair using NMOS as: HD3 = 1/32 (vi/Vov)^2 I successfully used this approximation for an 180nm process and it was still reasonably accurate. Now for a 28nm process, this formula seems to be unuseable. As example, I use vin=1mV. Vov is not very well def

## Litho Process Check Fail

I've never seen this (I have yet to go below 180nm on any real design job) but I would suggest you open up the rules deck and see what they're after, if the docs don't give you enough to go on. I could conjecture about things like non-ortho geometries, lonely vias and the like, but it's really your foundry's call and I'm sure they're not mine.

## difference between 180 nm and 90 nm interms of all aspects

Hi, In my project I am working on IEEE based .topic is ANALOG IMPLEMENTATION OF A SIGMOIDAL FUNCTION USING CMOS IN 90nm TECHNOLOGY but we are trying to implement in 180 nm cadence. concept is that they are following is current is the input and voltage is output at the same node as shown in paper and i

## Leakage measurement Pmos decap ( Inversion mode)

First of all, how can you know "the current in the Pmos is reversed so the tool is rounding off the -ve current value to 0", have you checked the pmos leakage current in accumulation mode. Or checked the leakage current of the nmos? Which nodes are you using? According to my experience, the leakage current for older CMOS process (>= 180nm) is extr

## BSIM3v3 180nm Process

Standard core voltage for a 180nm process is 1.8V. Usable voltage may range from 0.9 to 2.5V, depending on the foundry's specification. It does not depend on any model type nor EDA tool label.

## PVS rules for gpdk180nm

Yathin, the techRuleSets and pvtech.lib files can be created by you..Generally it won't be supplied form the foundry. however you can find the pvlLVS.rul and pvlDRC.rul files in your Cadence Database. For 180nm process, the DRC and LVS rule files will usually be placed in the Assura Directory. So browse through your Cadence Database for "Assura" di

## Maximum supply voltage for nmos2V andnmos3v in tsmc18rf?

You need to check a design manual for this process. The nominal Vdd for 180nm is 1.8V but for some I/O devices a standard is 2.5, 3.3 or 5V. This 2v or 3v could also means threshold voltages.

## query regarding 180nm CMOS Process

(1) Can I use 1.2 V as Vdd power supply in 180nm process or I can use only 1.8V as Vdd. You can use 1.2 V as Vdd power supply. (2) Is it true that 1.8 V is maximum available power supply in 180nm process and I can use a power supply less than 1.8V. Depends on availabl

## Question about Lmin and Leff in 90nm process

When we talk about 90nm process, what do we mean by this. Does it mean that minimum channel length (Ldrawn) is 90nm? or Ldrawn is 180nm? In attached image from a journal paper , author is referring to 90nm process, but has mentioned that L=46nm. But previously we knew that according to lambda based rule, minimum channel length must be twice l

## technology current for inversion coefficent

The technology current (t.c.) depends slightly on temperature, s. e.g. this curve from D. Binkley's book, p. 59: 103839 This t.c. is given for a similar 180nm process (fab not named). At room temperature the t.c.≈0.6?A for NMOS transistors, for PMOS it is a factor of 3..4 less. t.c. = (Id / (W/L)) / IC , w

## Mismatch model files required for umc 180 nm process

In this regard, I would like to mention that I am trying to run a Monte Carlo sampling, to make some ana

## Capacitor Mismatch Coefficient for gpdk 180nm technology

It's from Atmel. Sorry, no. It's company confidential, signed by an NDA. Hope for your understanding. Anyway: it doesn't disclose more details for understanding the context. The published data are just the result from silicon extraction measurements on many wafer lots. Hi erikl, Yes, I got ur poi

## Possible solutions to Input parasitic capacitance problem

10fF unit cap in a 180nm process tech. actually is a very low value: all I know (and realized) in this tech. had unit caps between 50 and 150fF. With 10fF unit cap - even with a low input cap comparator - you'll always have problems with the parasitics, fighting against required accuracy resp. resolution - at least for a resolution (1 ou

## Large Capacitors on IBM 180nm HV

Gate N+ to Nwell cap seems OK to me. But I can't find it in my cadence umc 180nm, 90nm and TSMC 90nm library. Does it require fully custom design? Or I can find it in other libraries? If your PDK doesn't contain such a cap, you could easily create it by full custom design, s. the cross section figure below i

## Short channel effect on Threshold Voltage of a MOSFET.

Who is correct? Both probably. In the 180nm process I'm working in now the Vt increases for shorter channels. I seem to remember a process where Vt went down as channels got shorter but can't say for sure... it seemed like it went down for one MOS type and up for the other. DIBL is a lowering of Vt with an incr

## Things to care when working on lower technology.

What are the things a layout designer has to care when working on deep sub-micron technology(32nm, 45nm etc) compare to older technology(180nm and above)?

## how to set the W/L ratio for wide swing current mirror using pmos

Depends on your accuracy requirement. Here's my suggestion: I'd start with L ≈ 5Lmin , e.g. L=1?m for a 180nm process. Then - if you have no area restriction - use X = n?(n+1)? = (n(n+1))? , e.g. X=36 for n=2. Then you get M1, M2: W/L = 9/1 M3, M4: W/L = 36/1 M5: W/L = 4/1 If you have to save real estate, use

## 180nm denotes which one Poly width or min diffusion width ?

Technology node (180nm, 130nm, 90nm, 65nm, 45nm, 32nm, 22nm, etc.) is defined as the lowest metal (metal 1) half-pitch (i.e. metal width or metal spacing) for the DRAM version of the process. Gate length or channel length is usually much smaller than the process node dimension (for example, in 90nm technology, the gate length is about 70nm).

## 180nm technology parameters

Effective channel length will be close to 130nm if the drawn L is 180nm due to lateral diffusion of the extension implants beneath the spacer.
