How to plot CV curve for a MOSCAP in Cadence?
Hi, How to plot CV curve for an MOSCAP in cadence?
In DC analysis I saw some "op" and "opt" option in Calculator. I chose the Cgg option to plot Vs Vgs. But its showing only one Value. I want to plot the complete CV Curve, how it can be possible??

how to compare cv curves
SPICE can, i am not sure about cadence, refer to the manual.

spice cv curve
you can simulate in ADE, sweep the gate voltage as a parameter!

plot cv curve
I did In CADENCE. I swept the gate voltage and shorted the Drain, Source and Bulk terminal to GND. I did the DC analysis. Now I want to plot the CV Curve. But I don't know how to do it??
Please can anybody tell me the way how to do it in CADENCE???

Re: plot cv curve
Is it ok to do it in DC analysis? I think the capacitor's value depends on the frequency, right?

This link is quite helpful:
The Designer's Guide Community Forum - Plot the CV curve using the spectre
So, set the frequency fixed and sweep the DC voltage instead (i.e., in the AC analysis choose Sweep Variable to be Design Variable instead, where you have your DC value as a parameter).
I must, however, say that I haven't used it frequently, but it seemed to work pretty well for my test setup.
