1 How to get a Circuit in verilog converted to hspice, connected to the micron package models, and simulating in hspice and hsimplus.

2 First we need a verilog file. // mod.v `timescale 1ns / 1ps module mod( a, out, CLK); input [3:0] a; input CLK; output [1:0] out; reg [1:0] out; CLK) begin out <= a % 3; end endmodule These are the names of the internal inputs and outputs This is where you declare the specs of the circuit. The [3:0] syntax means that there are 4 wires contained in the circuit. the output of this circuit is named out. For us to be able to assign to out in the always block below we must also declare a reg of the same type and name. For this circuit, the code in the always block will run every time that the CLK signal goes from low to high.

3 = vs <= operators reg[15:0] a; reg[15:0] b; CLK) begin a<=b; b<=a; end reg[15:0] a; reg[15:0] b; CLK) begin a=b; b=a; end The <= operator is verilog’s non-blocking assignment operator. During the CLK cycle all of these updates take place simultaneously For this circuit, a and b will switch their values at the positive edge of every CLK The = operator is verilog’s blocking assignment operator Each statement must be evaluated and the value changed before the next. For this circuit, a gets the value of b. b then gets the value of a. Result: both now contain the same value

4 Simulation of circuit to ensure logic correct. Hspice and Hsimplus are not suited for simple verification of a verilog circuit. Use Xilink or similar program to simulate the circuit and verify functionality.

5 Xilink demo Todo (maybe) add a xilink demo (but we should aready know how to do this) Please go on to next slide

6 Environment Setup In order for the tools in the cade lab to work properly, you must set up the tools. Edit your.cshrc file and include the following items set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S10) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/F09/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S09/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/F08/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S08/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/F07/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S07/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/F06/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S06/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/F05/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/bin/S05/) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/setups/) setenv LOCAL_CADSETUP /uusoc/facility/cad_common/local/class/6830/S09 setenv MSIM /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/MSIM-F07 setenv FPGADV /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/FPGADV-F07 setenv CBRE /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/CBRE-F07 setenv FPGADV_BIN /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/FPGADV-F07/Fpgadv/bin setenv HDS_BIN /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/FPGADV-F07/Hds/bin setenv MODELTECH_BIN /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/MSIM-F07/modeltech/bin setenv CALIBRE_BIN /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/CBRE-F07/bin setenv MGC_HOME /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/ixl_cal_2007.2_26.18/ixl_cal_2007.2_26.18/ set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/FPGADV-F07/Fpgadv/bin) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/FPGADV-F07/Hds/bin) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/MSIM-F07/modeltech/bin) set path = ($path /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/CBRE-F07/bin) setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE /uusoc/facility/cad_tools/Mentor/common_license

7 Conversion from Verilog to Spice Conversion from verilog to spice is done in several step 1.The.v file is ran through a rtl optimization and verification script 2.The now optimized file is ran through the design compiler to get a structural verilog file. 3.The structural verilog file is converted to hspice As an example I will be converting the mod.v file (shown earlier) to spice.

8 Step 0: Getting Ready Run the following commands to ensure group members can read your files – newgrp micron – umask 007 Create a working directory and copy the scripts from the /home/micron/design/65nm/dc directory – namingrules.dc Node name restriction and modification script – mult.cstr.tcl Constraint file that defines the clock period, etc – mult.rtlopt.csh A cshell script for launching the design compiler – mult.rtlopt.tcl A script for generating the correct rtl optimized file – mult.dcopt.csh A shell script for running the synthesis workflow – mult.dcopt.tcl A script for running the full compilation These are based off of the scripts from Ken Stevens ECE 6770 Advanced digital VLSI design class webpage – They have been modified to use the 65nm design libraries Copy the micron package models into your new directory

9 Step 0: Getting Ready (continued) mult.rtlopt.tcl ### This is the script for optimizing the verilog # # # DESIGN DEFINITION # # # set design_name mult set design_dir ".“ … mult.rtlopt.csh #!/bin/csh -fb ############################################### # This runs design compiler and creates the constraint files # This is the first of two scripts to be run # This one basically ensures the verilog is correct ### Script variable settings ## design compiler command - may need to run "setup-synopsys" first: set dccmd = "syn-dc" ## design definitions # note that csh variables do not get imported into dc_shell :-( set design = “mult” # this should be the top level name of your design set tool = "rtlopt“ … mult.dcopt.tcl ### This is the script for optimizing the verilog # # # DESIGN DEFINITION # # # set design_name mult set design_dir ".“ … mult.dcopt.csh #!/bin/csh -fb ############################################### # This runs design compiler and creates the constraint files ### Script variable settings ## design compiler command - may need to run "setup-synopsys" first: set dccmd = "syn-dc" ## design definitions # note that csh variables do not get imported into dc_shell :-( set design = “mult“ # this should be the top level name of your design set tool = "dcopt“ … Need to edit scripts so they are operating on the correct files. Modify 4 files replacing mult with the circuit name

10 Step 0: Getting Ready (continued) Adjust this value to define what clock speed we will be using – Very important to ensure that circuit is converted correctly (allows enough time for signal propagation) – We don’t know what it should be so make best guess – We will be able to check the circuit timing later and may have to come back and readjust this. Lastly rename all of the mult.* files to {circuit_name}.* mult.cstr.csh ############################################### # # tcl variable $design_name defined in calling script current_design $design_name ############################################### # # Define operational modes set_operating_conditions "typical" -library $lib_name set_wire_load_mode "segmented" set_max_fanout 64 $design_name ############################################### # # Define frequency parameters set clk_period set clk_port "CLK" set clk_name "clock"

11 mod.cstr.csh ################################################ # tcl variable $design_name defined in calling script current_design $design_name ################################################ # Define operational modes set_operating_conditions "typical" -library $lib_name set_wire_load_mode "segmented" set_max_fanout 64 $design_name ################################################ # Define frequency parameters set clk_period set clk_port "CLK" set clk_name "clock" Step 0: Getting Ready (continued) mod.rtlopt.tcl ### This is the script for optimizing the verilog # # # DESIGN DEFINITION # # # set design_name mod set design_dir ".“ … mod.rtlopt.csh #!/bin/csh -fb ############################################### # This runs design compiler and creates the constraint files # This is the first of two scripts to be run # This one basically ensures the verilog is correct ### Script variable settings ## design compiler command - may need to run "setup-synopsys" first: set dccmd = "syn-dc" ## design definitions # note that csh variables do not get imported into dc_shell :-( set design = “mod” # this should be the top level name of your design set tool = "rtlopt“ … mod.dcopt.tcl ### This is the script for optimizing the verilog # # # DESIGN DEFINITION # # # set design_name mod set design_dir ".“ … mod.dcopt.csh #!/bin/csh -fb ############################################### # This runs design compiler and creates the constraint files ### Script variable settings ## design compiler command - may need to run "setup-synopsys" first: set dccmd = "syn-dc" ## design definitions # note that csh variables do not get imported into dc_shell :-( set design = “mod“ # this should be the top level name of your design set tool = "dcopt“ … Final state of files after step 0

12 Step 1: RTL Optimization and Verilog Verification Run the rtl optimization script –./mod.rtlopt.csh This will generate 2 files – mod.rtlopt.out Contains a log of the conversion. Check this for errors!! – mod.rtlopt.v

13 Step 1: RTL Optimization and Verilog Verification (continued) mod.v `timescale 1ns / 1ps module mod( a, out, CLK); input [3:0] a; input CLK; output [1:0] out; reg [1:0] out; CLK) begin out <= a % 3; end Endmodule mod.rtlopt.v module mod ( a, out, CLK ); input [3:0] a; output [1:0] out; input CLK; wire N0, N1; REM_UNS_OP rem_13 (.A(a),.B({1'b1, 1'b1}),.REMAINDER({N1, N0}) ); \**SEQGEN** \out_reg[1] (.clear(1'b0),.preset(1'b0),.next_state(N1),.clocked_on(CLK),.data_in(1'b0),.enable(1'b0),.Q(out[1]),.synch_clear(1'b0),.synch_preset(1'b0),.synch_toggle(1'b0),.synch_enable(1'b1) ); \**SEQGEN** \out_reg[0] (.clear(1'b0),.preset(1'b0),.next_state(N0),.clocked_on(CLK),.data_in(1'b0),.enable(1'b0),.Q(out[0]),.synch_clear(1'b0),.synch_preset(1'b0),.synch_toggle(1'b0),.synch_enable(1'b1) ); endmodule Result mod.rtlopt.v is now ready for the design compiler

14 Step 2: Conversion to Structural Verilog Run the conversion script –./mod.dcopt.csh This will generate many files – mod.dcopt.out Contains a log of the conversion. Check this for errors!! – mod.dcopt.v The converted structural verilog file. – mod.dcopt.fullpaths Contains timing information from the design compiler

15 Step 2: Conversion to Structural Verilog (continued) mod.dcopt.v module mod ( a, out0, CLK ); input [3:0] a; output [1:0] out0; input CLK; wire n22, n23, n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n9, n10, n11, n12, n13, n14, n15, n16, n17, n18, n19, n20, n21; A2DFFQX1A12TR clock_r_REG2_S1 (.A(n1),.B(n12),.CK(CLK),.Q(n10) ); DFFQX0P5A12TR clock_r_REG1_S1 (.D(n18),.CK(CLK),.Q(n9) ); DFFQNX0P5A12TR clock_r_REG0_S1 (.D(n15),.CK(CLK),.QN(n21) ); DFFQX0P5A12TR clock_r_REG3_S1 (.D(n2),.CK(CLK),.Q(n8) ); OAI2XB1X1A12TR U3 (.A1N(n8),.A0(n21),.B0(n19),.Y(n20) ); XOR2X0P7A12TR U4 (.A(n20),.B(n8),.Y(n23) ); XNOR2X0P7A12TR U5 (.A(n7),.B(n21),.Y(n22) ); INVX16A12TR U6 (.A(n3),.Y(out0[0]) ); INVX16A12TR U7 (.A(n5),.Y(out0[1]) ); BUFHX1P4A12TR U8 (.A(a[2]),.Y(n1) ); INVX0P5BA12TR U9 (.A(a[3]),.Y(n12) ); NAND2X0P5BA12TR U10 (.A(a[1]),.B(n16),.Y(n18) ); BUFHX1P4A12TR U11 (.A(a[0]),.Y(n2) ); INVX0P5BA12TR U12 (.A(n23),.Y(n3) ); INVX0P5BA12TR U13 (.A(n22),.Y(n5) ); OAI22X1A12TR U14 (.A0(n17),.A1(n14),.B0(n13),.B1(n12),.Y(n16) ); INVX2A12TR U15 (.A(a[1]),.Y(n14) ); INVX2A12TR U16 (.A(n11),.Y(n13) ); NAND2X1A12TR U17 (.A(a[2]),.B(n11),.Y(n17) ); XOR2X0P7A12TR U18 (.A(n16),.B(a[1]),.Y(n15) ); NAND2X1A12TR U19 (.A(a[3]),.B(a[2]),.Y(n11) ); AND2X1A12TR U20 (.A(n8),.B(n20),.Y(n7) ); XOR2X0P7A12TR U21 (.A(n9),.B(n10),.Y(n19) ); endmodule mod.rtlopt.v module mod ( a, out, CLK ); input [3:0] a; output [1:0] out; input CLK; wire N0, N1; REM_UNS_OP rem_13 (.A(a),.B({1'b1, 1'b1}),.REMAINDER({N1, N0}) ); \**SEQGEN** \out_reg[1] (.clear(1'b0),.preset(1'b0),.next_state(N1),.clocked_on(CLK),.data_in(1'b0),.enable(1'b0),.Q(out[1]),.synch_clear(1'b0),.synch_preset(1'b0),.synch_toggle(1'b0),.synch_enable(1'b1) ); \**SEQGEN** \out_reg[0] (.clear(1'b0),.preset(1'b0),.next_state(N0),.clocked_on(CLK),.data_in(1'b0),.enable(1'b0),.Q(out[0]),.synch_clear(1'b0),.synch_preset(1'b0),.synch_toggle(1'b0),.synch_enable(1'b1) ); endmodule Result mod.dcopt.v is now ready for conversion to hspice

16 Step 2: Conversion to Structural Verilog (continued) Timing verification Look though the fullpaths file to ensure that there is no negative slack If there is any negative slack or too much positive slack edit the clock speed in the mod.cstr.tcl and rerun steps 1 and 2 Excerpt from mod.dcopt.fullpaths Startpoint: a[2] (input port) Endpoint: clock_r_REG0_S1 (rising edge-triggered flip-flop clocked by clock) Path Group: clock Path Type: max Point Incr Path clock (input port clock) (rise edge) input external delay r a[2] (in) r U19/Y (NAND2X1A12TR) f U17/Y (NAND2X1A12TR) r U14/Y (OAI22X1A12TR) f U18/Y (XOR2X0P7A12TR) f clock_r_REG0_S1/D (DFFQNX0P5A12TR) f data arrival time 0.10 clock clock (rise edge) clock network delay (ideal) clock uncertainty clock_r_REG0_S1/CK (DFFQNX0P5A12TR) r library setup time data required time data required time 0.23 data arrival time slack (MET) 0.13

17 Step 3: Conversion to Spice Run the v2lvs conversion program – v2lvs -v {INPUT FILE} -o {OUTPUT FILE} -lsr {LIBRARY FILE} –i – v2lvs -v mod.dcopt.v -o mod.v2lvs.sp -lsr /home/micron/design/65nm/data/cmos10sfrvt_A12.cdl –I mod.v2lvs.sp $ Spice netlist generated by v2lvs $ v2007.2_26.18 Wed Jun 13 20:11:48 PDT 2007.SUBCKT mod a[3] a[2] a[1] a[0] out0[1] out0[0] CLK Xclock_r_REG2_S1 n10 n1 n12 CLK A2DFFQX1A12TR Xclock_r_REG1_S1 n9 CLK n DFFQX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG0_S1 n21 CLK n DFFQNX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG3_S1 n8 CLK n DFFQX0P5A12TR XU3 n20 n21 n8 n OAI2XB1X1A12TR XU4 n23 n20 n XOR2X0P7A12TR XU5 n22 n7 n XNOR2X0P7A12TR XU6 out0[0] n INVX16A12TR XU7 out0[1] n INVX16A12TR XU8 n1 a[2] BUFHX1P4A12TR XU9 n12 a[3] INVX0P5BA12TR XU10 n18 a[1] n NAND2X0P5BA12TR XU11 n2 a[0] BUFHX1P4A12TR XU12 n3 n INVX0P5BA12TR XU13 n5 n INVX0P5BA12TR XU14 n16 n17 n14 n13 n OAI22X1A12TR XU15 n14 a[1] INVX2A12TR XU16 n13 n INVX2A12TR XU17 n17 a[2] n NAND2X1A12TR XU18 n15 n16 a[1] XOR2X0P7A12TR XU19 n11 a[3] a[2] NAND2X1A12TR XU20 n7 n8 n AND2X1A12TR XU21 n19 n9 n XOR2X0P7A12TR.ENDS Where is power and ground They are there, but we need to run one more script so we can see them.

18 Step 3: Conversion to Spice (continued) Use the emacs script v2lvs-convert.el to convert the spice file and add power and grounds Open the v2lvs-convert.el file in emacs – emacs v2lvs-convert.el – Press escape and then ‘x’ – Type in ‘eval-current-buffer’ and press enter – Press ctrl-x and then ctrl-f to open a new file – Type in the filename (mod.v2lvs.sp) and press enter – Press escape and then ‘x’ – Type in ‘convert-v2lvs’ and press enter – Press ctrl-x and then ctrl-s to save the file – Press ctrl-x and then ctrl-c to exit emacs

19 Step 3: Conversion to Spice Result – Our circuit now has VSS and VDD references to the internal parts. – Need to make one more change. The mod circuit does not define VSS or VDD as being accessible from an outside circuit. Add ‘ VDD VSS’ to the line starting with.SUBCKT to make those ports accessible. mod.v2lvs.sp $ Spice netlist generated by v2lvs $ v2007.2_26.18 Wed Jun 13 20:11:48 PDT 2007.SUBCKT mod a[3] a[2] a[1] a[0] out0[1] out0[0] CLK Xclock_r_REG2_S1 n10 n1 n12 CLK A2DFFQX1A12TR Xclock_r_REG1_S1 n9 CLK n DFFQX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG0_S1 n21 CLK n DFFQNX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG3_S1 n8 CLK n DFFQX0P5A12TR XU3 n20 n21 n8 n OAI2XB1X1A12TR XU4 n23 n20 n XOR2X0P7A12TR XU5 n22 n7 n XNOR2X0P7A12TR XU6 out0[0] n INVX16A12TR XU7 out0[1] n INVX16A12TR XU8 n1 a[2] BUFHX1P4A12TR XU9 n12 a[3] INVX0P5BA12TR XU10 n18 a[1] n NAND2X0P5BA12TR XU11 n2 a[0] BUFHX1P4A12TR XU12 n3 n INVX0P5BA12TR XU13 n5 n INVX0P5BA12TR XU14 n16 n17 n14 n13 n OAI22X1A12TR XU15 n14 a[1] INVX2A12TR XU16 n13 n INVX2A12TR XU17 n17 a[2] n NAND2X1A12TR XU18 n15 n16 a[1] XOR2X0P7A12TR XU19 n11 a[3] a[2] NAND2X1A12TR XU20 n7 n8 n AND2X1A12TR XU21 n19 n9 n XOR2X0P7A12TR.ENDS mod.v2lvs.sp (after emacs) $ Spice netlist generated by v2lvs $ v2007.2_26.18 Wed Jun 13 20:11:48 PDT 2007.SUBCKT mod a[3] a[2] a[1] a[0] out0[1] out0[0] CLK Xclock_r_REG2_S1 n10 n1 n12 CLK VDD VSS A2DFFQX1A12TR Xclock_r_REG1_S1 n9 CLK n18 VDD VSS DFFQX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG0_S1 n21 CLK n15 VDD VSS DFFQNX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG3_S1 n8 CLK n2 VDD VSS DFFQX0P5A12TR XU3 n20 n21 n8 n19 VDD VSS OAI2XB1X1A12TR XU4 n23 n20 n8 VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR XU5 n22 n7 n21 VDD VSS XNOR2X0P7A12TR XU6 out0[0] n3 VDD VSS INVX16A12TR XU7 out0[1] n5 VDD VSS INVX16A12TR XU8 n1 a[2] VDD VSS BUFHX1P4A12TR XU9 n12 a[3] VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU10 n18 a[1] n16 VDD VSS NAND2X0P5BA12TR XU11 n2 a[0] VDD VSS BUFHX1P4A12TR XU12 n3 n23 VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU13 n5 n22 VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU14 n16 n17 n14 n13 n12 VDD VSS OAI22X1A12TR XU15 n14 a[1] VDD VSS INVX2A12TR XU16 n13 n11 VDD VSS INVX2A12TR XU17 n17 a[2] n11 VDD VSS NAND2X1A12TR XU18 n15 n16 a[1] VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR XU19 n11 a[3] a[2] VDD VSS NAND2X1A12TR XU20 n7 n8 n20 VDD VSS AND2X1A12TR XU21 n19 n9 n10 VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR.ENDS mod.v2lvs.sp (with VDD,VSS addition) $ Spice netlist generated by v2lvs $ v2007.2_26.18 Wed Jun 13 20:11:48 PDT 2007.SUBCKT mod a[3] a[2] a[1] a[0] out0[1] out0[0] CLK VDD VSS Xclock_r_REG2_S1 n10 n1 n12 CLK VDD VSS A2DFFQX1A12TR Xclock_r_REG1_S1 n9 CLK n18 VDD VSS DFFQX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG0_S1 n21 CLK n15 VDD VSS DFFQNX0P5A12TR Xclock_r_REG3_S1 n8 CLK n2 VDD VSS DFFQX0P5A12TR XU3 n20 n21 n8 n19 VDD VSS OAI2XB1X1A12TR XU4 n23 n20 n8 VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR XU5 n22 n7 n21 VDD VSS XNOR2X0P7A12TR XU6 out0[0] n3 VDD VSS INVX16A12TR XU7 out0[1] n5 VDD VSS INVX16A12TR XU8 n1 a[2] VDD VSS BUFHX1P4A12TR XU9 n12 a[3] VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU10 n18 a[1] n16 VDD VSS NAND2X0P5BA12TR XU11 n2 a[0] VDD VSS BUFHX1P4A12TR XU12 n3 n23 VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU13 n5 n22 VDD VSS INVX0P5BA12TR XU14 n16 n17 n14 n13 n12 VDD VSS OAI22X1A12TR XU15 n14 a[1] VDD VSS INVX2A12TR XU16 n13 n11 VDD VSS INVX2A12TR XU17 n17 a[2] n11 VDD VSS NAND2X1A12TR XU18 n15 n16 a[1] VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR XU19 n11 a[3] a[2] VDD VSS NAND2X1A12TR XU20 n7 n8 n20 VDD VSS AND2X1A12TR XU21 n19 n9 n10 VDD VSS XOR2X0P7A12TR.ENDS

20 Spice File Simulation We now have the a spice file of our verilog circuit Now we need a control file for simulation Simpler to do it without the micron package models at first – Hard to program from scratch without example

23 Control Files (continued) *** define usage of the subcircuits x1 DIE_DQ3 DIE_DQ2 DIE_DQ1 DIE_DQ0 DIE_DQ5 DIE_DQ4 DIE_DQ6 pwr1 gnd mod Where do we get all of this info – x# at the start gives it a unique identifier for this instantiation of this circuit – mod at the end tells us what circuit it is – The rest of them are arbitrary names chosen by whatever naming scheme you see fit. So what should I put here and how many of them should I put? First look at the spice file.SUBCKT mod a[3] a[2] a[1] a[0] out0[1] out0[0] CLK VDD VSS x1 DIE_DQ3 DIE_DQ2 DIE_DQ1 DIE_DQ0 DIE_DQ5 DIE_DQ4 DIE_DQ6 pwr1 gnd mod Remember these names have been arbitrary chosen

24 Control Files (continued) To connect circuits – Set the name of the outputs of one to be the inputs of another – In this example the outputs of mod circuit x1 used as some of the inputs to x2 x1 DIE_DQ3 DIE_DQ2 DIE_DQ1 DIE_DQ0 DIE_DQ5 DIE_DQ4 DIE_DQ6 pwr1 gnd mod x2 DIE_DQ7 DIE_DQ8 DIE_DQ5 DIE_DQ4 DIE_DQ9 DIE_DQ10 DIE_DQ6 pwr1 gnd mod

28 Connecting Circuits to Packages To connect the mod circuit to the package we use the following format – Give mod’s inputs the same name as the DIE side inputs of the package DIE_DQ#_PCG001 BGA_DQ#_PKG001 MOD Input Stimulus (CLK,RESET,etc)

29 Connecting Circuits to Packages (continued) To connect the two mod circuits internally in a single package we use the following format – Give mod’s inputs the same name as the DIE side inputs of the package and /or inputs from the other mod circuit DIE_DQ#_PCG001 BGA_DQ#_PKG001 MOD x1 Input Stimulus (CLK,RESET,etc) MOD x2

30 Connecting Circuits to Packages (continued) To connect the 2 mod circuits that are in different packages we do the following – Give mod’s inputs the same name as the DIE side inputs of the package DIE_DQ#_PCG001 BGA_DQ#_PKG001 MOD x1 Input Stimulus (CLK,RESET,etc) DIE_DQ#_PCG002 BGA_DQ#_PKG002 MOD x2

31 Simulation in Hspice and Hsimplus The commands to simulate have similar formats hspice -i mod.singlelayer.control -o mod.singlelayer.hspice.out syn-hsimplus –I mod.singlelayer.control -o mod.singlelayer.hsimplus.out These commands may take a while. (especially hspice) When finished we should be able to open the results and view waveforms in c-scope – Command is syn-cscope Modelsim output files are of in the.fsdb format
