Root locus and Nyquist plots in cadence virtuoso ADE
Jan 18th, 2021, 4:49pm
 
Hi,

Is there a way to plot root locus and Nyquist plots in Cadence virtuoso (for example, when we run stb analysis for a feedback system)?

You can do a Nyquist plot by plotting the imaginary part of the loop gain against its real part.

Thanks, do you know if there is a way to do root locus for an stb simulation?
I would just like to find the location of poles/zeros based on an stb simulation and that's the purpose.

Is it fundamentally possible to find poles and zeros in stb analysis?

I don't think so. Spectre also has a pz analysis, but I have never used it.

I see. Thanks! I wish there was a way to find the location of poles and zeros approximately with stb analysis if I input an estimate of number of poles and zeros in the system.
