Design, Layout, and Simulation Examples

Cadence Design System – ubiquitous commercial tools.

Electric VLSI Design System – free and powerful CAD system for chip design (schematics, layout, DRC, LVS, ERC, etc.).

LASI – the LAyout System for Individuals.

Mentor Graphics – IC design, verification, design-for-manufacturability, and test technologies.

Silvaco Analog/Mixed-Signal/RF EDA – easy-to-use tools with good process design kit (PDK) availability.


SPICE Software, MOSFET Models, and MOSIS Information

The book’s SPICE simulation examples are available at HSPICE, LTspice, PSpice, and WinSpice.

The 50 nm and 1 um MOSFET models are found in cmosedu_models.txt (see also, BSIM4 manual).

Information on generating a GDSII (stream) file and help on submitting chips to MOSIS can be found here.
