    Cadence SFDR and ENOB simulation for DAC/ADC over frequency and input amplitude

    Hello,

    I am using Cadence Spectre/Virtuoso IC5.1, so I dont have access to the new Spectrum Assistant.

    I want to use Cadence Spectre/Virtuoso to plot SFDR and ENOB for a DAC (but also for an ADC later) over frequency and input amplitude.

    Is there a way to do this using calculator and parametric analysis ?

    Thank you.

    Use skill function.
    It is very easy task, if you can understand definitions of SFDR and ENOB truely.

    This is very true for https://www.edaboard.com/showthread.php?386455#8

    Can you post some example SKILL code that accomplishes this ?

    I notice you talk a lot about SKILL and OCEAN coding, yet you never post any code.
