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 server (mikroserver2 or mikroserver3):

ssh -X mikroserver2

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_616_rev1.5.0_a/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/cadence/2016-17/scripts/analog_flow.sh
cd ~/ihp/cds/
source sh.cadence
virtuoso &

To create a command that will do this for you try this command:

 echo "alias startVirtuoso='source /eda/cadence/2016-17/scripts/analog_flow.sh && cd ~/ihp/cds/ && source sh.cadence && virtuoso &'" >> ~/.bashrc

Typing 'startVirtuoso' in the terminal will execute these four commands


Follow the Design Kit User manual found in the menu SG13S Features > Design Kit Documentation. Make sure that your web browser is closed or started from the microserver, else the file will not be found.
