    choosing 1.8 or 3.3V MOS transistor for analog IC design

    Hi I have to design an analog circuit for IC whose power supply is not freezed. How do I select which transistor to use from PDK library provided by the foundry? Which parameters like VDD, Gm , Gds , Ft, Ron etc. takes priority in deciding transistor choice as per my application. I am...

    Create opamp macromodel from hspice/spectre netlist

    Hi I am an analog ic designer and want a way to share my design IP netlist to some external customer without sharing actual netlist. I believe it can be done by using macromodel. But how to create one for say opamp block. Or is their any better method. Regards Vipul

    Biasing analog circuit : Beta multiplier or Resistor bias

    Is it a good idea to use on chip resistor to provide biasing currents to the current mirrors in analog circuit ? Or should self biasing "beta multiplier" ckt be used to generate this biasing current always ???? Also what are the disadvantages of using the biasing resistor external to the...

    How to use ".LIN analysis" in HSPICE

    How can I use .lin analysis in HSPICE to measure the impedance or transimpedance using Z parameters? For .lin analysis "port" element are required to be used at the nodes where 2-port parameters need to be calculated. ANd this port element needs the value of "resistance" and "impedance" to be...
