|PDK (Process Design Kit)|
The design environment working with the standard CAD tools can be installed in your computer account of VLSI design room. The command prompt of the terminal will be written as "vlsi>" in this manual.
vlsi> mkdir ~/lab vlsi> cp /home/kitagawa/design/rohm180.tar ~/lab/ vlsi> cd ~/lab vlsi> tar xvf rohm180.tar
vlsi> cd vlsi> mv .cshrc .cshrc.org2 vlsi> cp /home/kitagawa/design/ex.cshrc ~/.cshrc vlsi> cp /home/kitagawa/design/ex.setlic ~/setlic vlsi> source ~/.cshrc vlsi> ln -s ~/lab/rohm180 d
You can move into the working directory with the command line "cd ~/d".

NOTE: "Cadence library" means the design data created by Cadence IED tool. This data includes the schematics, layout artworks, HDL code, Settings for simulators, and so on. The Cadence library should be handled with Cadence Library Manager. Do not manipulate the Cadence library by using UNIX command.
The design environments of LSI are nomally provided based on the UNIX system and the CAD softwares in Kanazawa university depends on the Linux which is the operating system developed with conforming to UNIX. Please learn the commands frequently used in Linux.
