Hi,I have checked the netlist which corresponds to my design with respect to my setting on w/l of devices. But when I PRINT MODEL PARAMETER, the w and l fields are always keep unchanged, 5 um and this finding is further found in model parameter -info using Cadence result browser. Is this w and l meaning channel width and length? why they are set so?
From the "Model Parameters" section of "spectre -h bsim4":
484 w=5e-6 m Default channel width.485 l=5e-6 m Default channel length.
So the model can define the default value of w and l if not specified on the instance. And there are default values of those defaults...
Since you are looking at the model parameters (rather than instance parameters) you're simply seeing the values of those defaults. You would not expect (as I've explained in previous posts) to see instance parameters affecting dumped model parameters; after all, the same model is shared amongst multiple instances, regardless of the w and l of each instance.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Got you. The netlist takes w and l from instance parameters first, if not set then takes values from model parameter list which gives default value. The default value in model parameter list is set so that it provides a universe value for all devices to refer to.
