I was wondering if there a way to find out what is the current simulation time in a transient simulation? I would like a variable to use the variable in calculator if possible.
The main reason being i want to plot eye digrams while the simulation is running, but from a preset output in analog enviroment. currently, if the simulation has not passed the time given to the eye diagram, the system cannot plot it.
Not sure which version you're using, but if you're asking to specify the max time in the time range for the eye diagram, then if you use the eyeDiagram function in the calculator, you can specify the stop time as 0. Then it will just use the maximum in the waveform and there's no need to know the current simulation time. Alternatively you could use ymax(xval(v("/someNode" ?result 'tran))) - but that's overkill.
Don't think this works with the eye diagram assistant in IC615 though - probably should though.

I cant believe it was such a simple fix! Thanks a lot for your help.
