I'm setting up a custom design environment based on the latest hotfix release of IC5141 (version 220.127.116.110.6.151 ) and I'm a little confused on which additional packages/versions I need to install to get the following features:
- lvs/drc (ASSURA?)
- postlayout parasitics extraction (EXT?)
- analog design environment with spectre and ams (MMSIM and/or INCISIV?)
Is there a product compatibility matrix I can reference for this?
Hi TaviThe required packages are:- ASSURA : This provides assura for drc/lvs- EXT : This provides qrc for parasitic extraction- IC5141 : This provides ADE simulation environment- MMSIM : This provides spectre/ultrasim for simulation - INCISIVE : This provides AMS designer for mixed signal simulationIn general, it is ok to just install the latest version of each package and use them without any issues.Best regardsQuek
Thanks for the reply.
I also found out that the ASSURA version must match the version of the IC installation. So for IC5141 that would be ASSURA41-5141-....
The INCISIVE release notes (*.txt) file have the number for the compatible MMSIM version.
