Inability to alter Model Name

Discussion in 'Cadence' started by Johannes Blouwer, Oct 20, 2003.

  1. Hi All

    I have to extend some part libraries for a process that developed some new
    features. Some before me created a three terminal resitor symbol for the
    poly resistors. I want to use the same symbol, rename it and point to a
    new model for high resistance poly. I copied the symbol with the library
    manager and saved it under a new name. I have spent many hours trying to
    change the Model Name field. It is greyed out in the Properties dialog
    box and I can't find a way to edit it or make it editable. Any help and
    suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance
    Regards
    JNB

    Hi Johannes

    You need to edit the CDF for the resistor. For this goto:
    CIW->CDF->Edit
    Fill out the library name and cell name. Change CDF type to Base. The
    change the value of the model field. Hit OK and you are done. I might
    be a little inaccurate in some details as I don't have access to
    Cadence software right now.

  3. Thank you. That did it. I never looked in CFII but tried in the
    component editor only and the manuals.
