Hello, Cadence community,
Lately I've found a need of specific digital or analog components to test analog circuit performance that can be described using Verilog-A programming language, but the problem is - I am not sure where to start.
I've found the following documents describing Verilog in Cadence:
Could someone recommend literature (I assume Cadence datasheets) on the following topics:
And one more thing, is there any specific Verilog coding environment in Cadence? For example OCEAN doesn't have that luxury, SKILL has a debugger and what about Verilog?
Not sure why you would be looking at such an old document, when there are manuals in your software installations.
For example, look at <MMSIMinstDir>/doc/veriaref/veriaref.pdf (you can find this in cdnshelp too). There's also the Verilog-AMS reference in <INCISIVinstDir>/doc/verilogamsref/verilogamsref.pdf .
I'd also recommend The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS as a good place to start.
There's a debugging environment as part of AMS Designer too (more for Verilog-AMS, but could be used for Verilog-A and certainly digital Verilog as well).
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thanks for the quick reply. The path to the Verilog-A reference in MMSIM folder is more than enough. Can't seem to get used to searching for documentation there, rather than "googling" it. It seems that I should investigate the contents of MMSIM doc folder thoroughly.
In reply to Alex Vasjanov:
I would recommend using cdnshelp to look at the documentation. You can edit the preferences to add multiple libraries of documentation (e.g. from different Cadence streams, e.g. IC, PVE, INCISIV, MMSIM, etc) and then can search across all of them. It's got hyperlinks, an index which makes it easy to find the right manual, and you can open the manuals in pdf from here if you want the published formatting.
In general searching via google wouldn't find you the documentation, because any documentation that is found this way is only likely to be there as a result of somebody violating their license agreement which disallows re-publication of our material. So usually you'll only find really old stuff where nobody has bothered to ask them to take it down.
The other alternative is to look at the manuals on http://support.cadence.com . I personally prefer cdnshelp, but some people use the Cadence Online Support route all the time.
