Revently when I was working on Monte Carlo simulation with ADE XL, there is an error happening all the time .
\o *Error* Error ID = 5011\o *Error* Error Msg = Simulator failed to complete the simulation.\o \o Error found by spectre during hierarchy flattening.\o ERROR\o (SFE-1997): "input.scs" 25: mc1: parameter `dut': A scalar\o is expected as the value for parameter `dut'.
It also says there is not statistical data generated.
Could you please help me on this? Thank you so much!!!!!
Hi chihai2011Are you able to run a normal spectre simulation? Would you please enter the following in ciw and let us know the output?getShellEnvVar("CDS_NETLISTING_MODE")Please also provide the following information:linux>virtuoso -Wlinux>spectre -WBest regardsQuek
In reply to Quek:
That should be "CDS_Netlisting_Mode" (the case is wrong). Simpler to use the SKILL function:
Anyway, I suspect the issue is due to a version of spectre being used which is too old. Originally the "dut" (Device Under Test" had to be a single instance, but that changed in MMSIM70 Update 1 (7.0.1.053). If using a spectre version before that, and specifying the Device Under Test in the Monte carlo options form in ADE XL, then I suspect you could get this problem.
