technology-independent tutorials vanilla environment setups simple SPICE model files that can be downloaded without restrictions from the Web

Although layout exercises have been run attached to a specific technology, no technology references will be included in the tutorials description. As a matter of fact we mention a few very standard layers (e.g. M1 and M2 metal layers) which are common to all technologies.

Layout examples with the LayoutEditor open source software

extract a simple sandwitch metal-to-metal capacitor, which is another technology-independent example

To get started with SPICE you can refere to LTspice pages

A collection of questions abaout analog design with Cadence has been collected in form of HowTo's and FAQs.
