HSpice Netlist Extratction with Cadence This tutorial explains how to extract a HSPICE netlist from layout view. Prepare the library (If you have done the first tutorial (HSPICE tutorial), you can skip this step.) Since we are using TSMC0.2u technology in the layout, we need to include the corresponding library for the transistor model. Make a directory ~/ee574/library/ Copy all files in /home/ee_qqiu/ee574/library/ to this directory. This will be the library files that you are going to use in the spice simulation for the rest of the class. From Virtuoso (the layout view): a) Get the extracted view of the layout: 1. Select Verify -> Extract. 2. To extract parasitic capacitances for NCSU kit : 1. Click the Set Switches button. 2. Select Extract_parasitic_caps option. If you use capacitors or resistors, like in many analog applications, select Extract_cap and Extract_resistor also. 3. In the command input line at the bottom of icfb window, enter the command " NCSU_parasiticCapIgnoreThreshold=x " with x being

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
