I am using Cadence 6.13 with mmsim 7.2
I have a problem running simulation that include the nport component. I get the following error:
ERROR (SFE-874): "input.scs" 20: Unexpected keyword "options". Expected equals.
At other times, I also get the following error:
*Error* fprintf/sprintf: format spec. incompatible with data - "Format is ' noisecorr=\"%s\"', argument #1 is nil"
I am using touchstone files for the nport data and I do not have any noise data. Is there any solution to this?
Did you just file a service request on this recently? It would be helpful to see your netlist. I suspect there's a problem in your syntax.

In reply to Tawna:
On second thought...I believe you have run into a known bug that is fixed in IC220.127.116.110.15.
Also, have you set the following env variable? If not, please do so.
setenv CDS_Netlisting_Mode Analog
I have the CDS_Netlisting_Mode env variable already set.
Actually, Cadence doesn't generate a netlist in the 1st place. It gives the error:
Sometimes it randomly generates the netlist but creates the other error I referred to: ERROR (SFE-874): "input.scs" 20: Unexpected keyword "options". Expected equals.
I checked my cadence version and it's 18.104.22.168
Do you think the solution is to update to 22.214.171.1240.15?
Thanks for help

If upgrading to the latest ISR doesn't fix the issue, please file a Service Request with Customer Support
It sounds like there is a problem with netlisting. You are using a pretty old version of software. I cannot reproduce the issue here.
It is always helpful to provide the settings that you are using in the nport. I suspect the netlisting error is unrelated to the unexpected keyword error. But you haven't provided enough information to know for sure.
