Hi Generally we go for matching to reduce the effects like stress and thermal gradient but how can i decide that which matching is best and how the layout effects are cancel each other ?
Hi everyone! I am trying to layout a common centroid diff pair as below: GND D1 S D2 S D1 S D2 S D1 GND D2 S D1 S D2 S D1 S D2 GND GND D2 S D1 S D2 S D1 S D2 GND D1 S D2 S D1 S D2 S D1 GND but i need help connecting the gates and source and drains such that the (...)
Do the dkit mismatch models work correctly when resistors which should be matched are not in common-centroid layout? For example, a coleague designed a bandgap reference, and its design has three resistors that should be matched, but when he draw the (...)
Hi..... In current mirror matching.... How the direction of current flow is important in layout matching either in interdigitizaton or common centroid?? How is it related with chirality of device placement??? Thanks in advance
Hi all....... Why interdigitization is preferred over common-centroid in resistor matching layout???Is it routing complexity of latter one???? Any other reasons??? Thanks in advance
Hi can anyone please explain me what the common centroid in layout design is? In general can anyone tell me what matching is. Is matching something got to do with say a current mirror and the ratio of the say 3 transistors in the current mirror should be same (the L and W). (...)
This snake layout will have more parasitic capacitance than a common centroid or interdigitated layout.
Hello :) I've been designing an OTA on CADENCE and I would like to perform the common centroid for the following transistors: 117774 The original dimensions: W14=55um ; L14=0.55um W11=27um ; L11=0.55um New dimensions (dividing M14 in 4 transistors & M11 in 2 transistors) for each divided transistor: W14'=W14/4
Hello, I am looking for a common centroid layout for a binary weighted DAC and in a thesis online found an arrangement, but I have had a hard time figuring out a pattern in this placement. The figure below is the capacitor array placement and each number in this figure (...)
Hi, I am doing a layout of a simple common-centroid differential pair with multipliers and fingers using IBM 130nm cmrf8sf. DRC runs fine. But i get malformed device error: *ERROR* Device 'nfet(Generic)' on Schematic is unbound to any layout device. Any ideas on how to solve this? (...)
Reducing input pair transistor size is not a good solution. Ideally this will make your offset to further increase in the silicon. Thus it is recommended to keep the device size big ..finish the layout with common centroid technique for offset reduction.
Hi, Advantages of inter-digitization gives each finger of the gate the same effects. Keep in mind that you must add spares onto the end so that the end finger "sees" the same as a finger in the middle of the row. Keeping the inputs of a differential pair the same length in also expected. The disadvantages of inter-digitization is that for high sp
... in analog layout apart from common centroid and inter digitization there is another type of matching called half cell matching. can any one give some information about half cell matching in analog layouts? Also called repetition layout, this is an analog (...)
... one instance (a big MOS sliced into smaller ones, all having drain, source and gate but connected as one unit). So this one MOSFET instance is already fingered, which makes sense for a large W/L ratio. It saves you to instance very wide MOSFETs, so achieves a better aspect ratio, which is good for lo
Dear friends I need your urgent help in the layout design issue, I have told before that this the first time to deal with this topic I want to match three transistors (A,B,C) each one has 6 fingers (m=6). please consider m is fixed (I can not change it) before you suggest me i will give you my idea the actual number of transistors are 3*
dear friends I am new in the layout design , it is the first time for me to start doing the layout. I attached you the picture of a current current mirror which I would first start with it, later on I will submit the other circuits and I really need your help and support I am planning (...)
I suppose you've already considered interdigitizing, common centroid layout and side dummy usage (s. PDFs below). and perhaps this or that thread may be interesting.
common centroid is a good practice. You should also keep in mind that splitting a 20x1 MOS into 4, 5x1MOS can have some effect on your simulation. it is better to double check. You should also try to maintain symmetry in your connectivity.
My question is in my case since the number of fingers is low ... can I go for only interdigitization? Ofcourse you can.You can try those patterns : ABBA (or this as a column,i mean ABBA vertically) or do both interdigitization and common centroid : AB BA
hi nishanthpv, I would not do the layout in common centroid or using other different layout technique. I would just draw each branch (CLK1, and CLK2) similar in order to help the achieving of nearly 50% duty. Regards.
