Cadence design with IHP 130nm process

Starting up the IHP SG13S Design Kit

The following steps describe how to install the Process Design Kit and start a new design.

Log on to the mikroserver of choise

ssh -X mikroserver

The preferred shell is bash. When using another shell it will be necessary to change the installation routine and modify the initialization script accordingly.

The first time you are using the IHP design kit you should copy the user environment design to your chosen parent directory (e.g ~/ihp)

cp -rp /eda/design_kits/ihp_sg13/SG13S_618_rev1.12.0/work/skel ~/ihp

Change sh.cadence in ~/ihp/cds to suit your needs. In particular you must define $IHP_TECH and $PROJECT according to your local environment. Then set general and user Cadence environment variables by doing:

source /eda/design_kits/ihp_sg13/sh.cadence
cd ~/ihp/cds/
source /eda/design_kits/ihp_sg13/sh.cadence

To start Cadence Virtuoso : virtuoso &

Example script File:example_script.txt to run from_ "user"/ihp/cds/

To avoid having to do this every time try to set up your environment like described in MikroserverSetup

Before starting designing

Read the Design Kit User Guide. It can be found on the SG13SFeatures tab on the Virtuoso console window, or in the folder "/eda/design_kits/ihp_sg13/SG13S_618_rev1.12.0/doc/pdf/" on the mikroserver. Make sure that your web browser is closed or started from the mikroserver, else the file will not be found.
