The following steps need to be done for getting the gm/Id vs Id/(W/L) graphs in Cadence for a MOS transistor.
The above schematic shows that the drain current(di), vgd, W and L are parameterized and they are sweeped in the simulation script to get the graphs for a wide range of conditions and check the variation of the graph for them.
mysaves_t18.scs and add the following line in it:
Now add this file with path in ADE->Setup->Simulation Files->Definition Files
Note that the .m0 is only needed because this model is implemented as s Sub Circuit in the models file. If the model is not a subcircuit and something direct like a BSIM model then .m0 would not be needed.
- gm/Id = gm/di expression: (getData("MNO_PSP.m0:gm" ?result "dc-dc")/IS("/V1/PLUS"))
- Id/(W/L) expression: (IS("/V1/PLUS")/(5e-6/180e-9))
Run the Simulation and see the results.
Save this ocean script (say 'gmByIdScript.ocn') and load it from the CIW window by typing:
This would start the simulations and at the end we would have the file gmByIdCurves.csv with all the simulation results.
mergeGraphs.m and run it to create the graphs in a figure:
NOTE This graph was taken with a linear sweep a better graph will result of the sweep is set to logarithmic especially with no discontinuity in the slope as it seems in this one.
