User inductor spice model : User inductor spice model

Requires: QUEST Minimum Versions: QUEST 2.0.2.R

This example demonstrates how to create and extract user-defined inductor SPICE model parameters. Please refer to previous examples to learn how to create a QUEST input deck.

To load and run this example, select the Load example button in DeckBuild. This will copy the input file, GDSII file and results to your current working directory. Select the run button to execute the example.

In this example the parameter ut4.batchfile is used in the save statement to save QUEST results (s-parameter) in UTMOST4 format (questex15_ind_model.uds)

UTMOST4 will indeed be used to perform SPICE model parameter extraction. A project in UTMOST4 has to be created using the UTMOST4 GUI including both the user defined SPICE model as well as the extraction strategy (questex15.prj).

A SPICE model extraction can be performed either using the UTMOST4 GUI or UTMOST under DeckBuild.

To use the UTMOST GUI, open an existing database or create a new one (see UTMOST4 manual for details) and click on 'import dataset' (select questex15_ind_model.uds) and 'import project' (select questex15.prj). Double click on questex15 and the project will open. Click on 'run'.

To run UTMOSTIV under DeckBuild, just run UTMOSTIV at the end of the QUEST simulation.
