Project Description and Resources ...
042 project description
A Short course on SPICE (and WinSpice3)
Full Spice3 user's manual (link). Also check my shared folder for a WINSPICE manual.
Download a self-extracting WinSpice (includes a full user's manual) from \\coe-elrabaa\SharedFolder\winspice.
Spice Technology files: 0.5µm, 5V Technology , 0.35µm, 3.3V Technology ,
0.25µm, 2.5V Technology and 0.18µm, 1.8V Technology
WinSpice example files: DC analysis of an NMOS inverter & Transient analysis of the same circuit
5Spice Installation folder (just copy to your Z drive)
Magic Resources (These are from Dr. El-Maleh's web and will open in a separate window)
Setting up your Magic Account
Magic Tutorials: tut1, tut2, tut3, tut4, tut5, tut6, tut7, tut8, tut9, tut10, tut11
Magic & Irsim source code (magic6.5)
Download Magic for W2000 from \\coe-elrabaa\SharedFolder\Magic\Magic for W2000
Download Magic for XP from \\coe-elrabaa\SharedFolder\Magic\Magic for XP
Magic layers (Cheat-sheet)
Also there are two shared folders on my machine's C drive (\\coe-elrabaa):
one contains the Magic Technology files for the three technologies (TechFiles)
and another for a self-extracting WinSpice (Spice 3 for windows). The technology
files include a PAD_ESD standard cell library. The documentations for the PAD library
and for logic standard cells (useful to see how a professional layouts looks like).
Here are some practice layouts ...
