Instrumentation Amplifier on Cadence

Thread Starter

Hi everyone,

I am trying to make a current-feedback IA on Cadence, using a design given in a paper, but I am getting errors. Do I need to include a source follower at the output to lower the output resistance? Or include a buffer? How do you make a buffer using CMOS technology? Any help or ideas would be really appreciated!!
I have included a screenshot of my circuit and testbench:


This is the error I am currently getting:
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

ERROR (ADEXL-5025): Preparation to run the simulation is failed for the run Interactive.1, point 1, test ia:IApapertestbench:1, received error:



Error while preparing to run the simulation.

Netlist directory "/home/uceembw/current feedback IA/Sim/ia/IApapertestbench/adexl/results/data/Interactive.1/1/ia:IApapertestbench:1/netlist" does not exist

For details open log: /home/uceembw/current feedback IA/logs_uceemjw/logs0/Job1.log for the point: (1 1)

Thank you!

Best wishes,
