Agilent Model Quality Assurance (MQA) - 1

Agilent Model Quality Assurance (MQA) Industry Standard SPICE Model Signoff and Acceptance Software Model Quality Assurance (MQA) is a collection of comprehensive SPICE model validation procedures, interfaces and utilities that provide the ability to thoroughly check SPICE model quality and automate QA and reporting procedures for various semiconductor devices. Given today’s advanced technologies and increasing model complexities, validating SPICE models is a significant challenge and can be very time consuming. The matrix of environment compliance across various foundries, technologies, process nodes and simulators, is becoming increasingly complex for many design houses and IDMs to manage. To assure model compliance, a comprehensive, robust, and customizable QA check is required. MQA satisfies this critical industry requirement with the unified, rules-driven, automated QA platform which efficiently integrates standard model libraries into design and flow environment compliance and documents results.

MQA MQA is a unique software product developed to solve the following problems: SPICE model validation is becoming increasingly important and significantly more difficult. This is because: Model validation encompasses much more than just overlaying the measurement results to simulation results of the model • As the channel scales down, second-order physical effects make device modeling more complex. • The quality can only be guaranteed after fixed QA procedures are in place. • After all, measurement is limited to the number of physical devices in the test structure and the resolution of...

Equation Viewer Subckt Parameter Viewer This feature outputs model equations and automatically calculates the parameter values, OP values and intermediate vari- able values in the equations. This helps users to easily debug model issues and saves effort compared to calculating these values using other means (such as Excel). Check and verify the model parameters versus the instances of the subckt models Lib Explorer is an efficient way to clearly present and setup model libraries; all along, making QAwork easy and straight- forward. Within Lib Explorer, libraries are presented in a tree...
