spectre model

Hi all,
I am very new to cadence, I am using IC5.1.41,How can I put model files ( *.mod) for MOSFETs, I have a .mod file and I want to make simulation on cadence.

I knew there are SPICE models and Spectre models which may differ a little, I think the one I am having is SPICE model simply because I could use it in Orcad, is this right? now, how can I use this model in cadence??

please help. thanks.

model files for spectre

In ADE ( Analog Design Environment ) under "Setup" toolbar, there will be "Model Libraries". Put them your model files at here.(the path of your files)
SPICE model file is a little bit different than spctre but you can create also spectre modle files by hand.

Re: model files for spectre

Hi,

You can try using the spice model library in spectre by adding this to your spice model library and using the +csfe command option in spectre:

library name_of_library

section name_of_section
simulator lang=spice

.model.......}spice model
+...
+...

simulator lang=spectre
endsection name_of_section

endlibrary

Re: model files for spectre

YOu can converter the spice model to the spectre model.
You can refer the manual of the cadence for the details.
There is a chapter which discusses the differences between
spice model and spectre's.
