Quick Install and License Setup - Linux
GoldenGate can be installed on a Linux machine after downloading the installation file from the Keysight EEsof EDA Website, as illustrated.
Obtain GoldenGate License File
GoldenGate requires a license to run. You can either apply for an Evaluation or a Purchased license. Once the license request is approved, a license file (with
.lic extension) is sent as an email attachment. Save this file on your computer.
For more details on Supported Platforms, see Supported Platforms section.
|You can use GoldenGate with ADS. For details on compatibility, seesection.|
The following are Keysight recommended configurations:
64-bit Linux OS / Design Environment
RAM / Swap Space
The requirements specified for Cadence Analog Circuit Design Environment are sufficient for GoldenGate
Hard Disk Space
1.2 GB of free disk space

GoldenGate License Setup
Both node-locked and floating licenses require license server License Server is the machine where you set up the EEsof license. The EEsof license file contains the host ID of the License Server. to get installed and started. For a node-locked license, license server and the client are installed on the same machine (that is, your local machine). For a floating license, these can be separate machines.
To setup a counted license, follow the 3-step process:
|In the case of a USB dongle, attach the dongle to the USB port and install dongle driver before you start License Server Managers ( lmgrd and agileesofd ).|
Step 1: Start License Server Managers ( lmgrd and agileesofd )
Start the license server managers ( lmgrd and agileesofd ) on the machine to which the license is tied as follows:
- Change the directory to the $XPEDION/Licensing/ <license tools version> /linux_x86_[32|64]/bin
- Run the following command to start
./lmgrd -c <license file path> -l <license log file path>
- <license file path> specifies one or more full pathnames to the license file(s).
- <license log file path> is the full pathname to the debug log file.
Step 2: Automate FlexNet License Server Startup
To automate the License Server managers’ startup upon system reboot, see Automate FlexNet License Server Startup in Licensing (For Administrators).
Step 3: Set Product Environment Variable
To use a node-locked license on your machine, set the GOLDENGATE_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to the machine running the license server managers ( lmgrd and agileesofd ). For more information on product environment variables, see License Environment Variables in Licensing (for Administrators).
To set the environment variable GOLDENGATE_LICENSE_FILE in a shell, type the following commands:
setenv GOLDENGATE_LICENSE_FILE $HOME/
Setting up floating license on Linux is a two-step process where both server-side setup and client-side setup are needed.
Step 2: Client-side setup
Once the license is configured successfully for all the license servers, configure each client computer to point to the network license server. License Setup Wizard offers the easiest method to get this done. Alternatively, you can perform this step manually by Setting Up Product Environment Variables. For details, see step 3 of Node-locked License Setup section.
From GoldenGate 2015.01 release onwards, GoldenGate can be used with Virtuoso® or Advanced Design System (ADS). This section describes the steps to launch GoldenGate either in the Virtuoso® or ADS environment.
Before starting GoldenGate, the
XPEDION environment variable must point to the installation directory of GoldenGate and the
XPEDION_CADENCE_VERSION environment variable must point to the Cadence installation directory. For more details, see Setting Environment Variables.
To run GoldenGate, open a terminal window and enter the following command:
% icms - if you set Cadence IC5 ADE
% virtuoso - if you set Cadence IC6 ADE
Before starting GoldenGate, you need to:
- Install ADS. For details, refer to the Installation (For Administrators) documentation in ADS.
- Enable the GoldenGate addon in ADS. For details, see Enabling GoldenGate in ADS.
