What's a ".pm" file? I don't recognize that suffix. Without knowing the contents of the file (don't post it here, because that would probably break a license agreement from whoever provided you with the model) - comments in the file might give some clue as to what simulator it was intended for - it's very hard to tell you what to do.
Wouldn't the best place to get the 22nm MIGFET model be from whatever foundry is providing the 22nm process?
My guess in that case is that you're using too old a version of spectre.
If I do "spectre -h bsimsoi" with spectre from IC5141, it says (at the top):
B3SOI is an SOI model developed by U.C. Berkeley based on bsim3v3. B3SOI devices require that you use a modelstatement. This is the B3SOI version-3.0/3.11 model.
In MMSIM71 version of spectre it says:
B3SOI is an SOI model developed by U.C. Berkeley based on bsim3v3. B3SOI devices require that you use a modelstatement. This is the B3SOI version-2.23/3.0/3.11/3.2/4.0/4.1 model.
In MMSIM72 version of spectre it says:
B3SOI is an SOI model developed by U.C. Berkeley based on bsim3v3. B3SOI devices require that you use a modelstatement. This is the B3SOI version-2.23/3.0/3.11/3.2/4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3 model.
So you need something more recent than spectre from IC5141 if you want version 3.2 of bsimsoi. (see many posts on this forum, or solutions on http://support.cadence.com ) which talk about using spectre from MMSIM streams.
Hello Saeed, How did you work with .pm file of finfet in spectre??
I got 32nm model of finfet from website http://ptm.asu.edu/. I don't know how to use this model in spectre for circuit simulations.
Can you tell me about this.
After making a small correction to the soi*.pm files :
.model nmos1 nmos1 level = 57
.model nmos1 nmos level = 57
and similarly for all of them (the third word should be nmos or pmos, not a repetition of the second word), I then just used it directly in a spectre netlist (this is testfin.scs)
