I am trying to generate my own .lib file from the layout I've designed in Virtuoso. I tried to use SignalStorm, but figured out that I do not have license for it. Could anyone please suggest any other tool to do this?
Also, does SignalStorm come along with the standard university package? I remember having it in 2006-07, but after that it was discontinued for some reason. Any info will be helpful.
Automated is a tall order for a custom cell; however, you should review the Virtuoso Foundation IP Characterization datasheet:
This technology was acquired from Altos and has replaced DCM in ICADV12.1. It is a more automated approach for library characterization. Without knowing more about the function and process node of your custom cell, it is difficult to know if this would be a better solution than DCM.
