Many users ask, "How do I instantiate a netlist into my schematic and simulate with spectre in ADE?"
To instantiate a subcircuit (netlist) in your schematic and simulate with spectre in ADE you need to create a cell with a CDF parameter 'model' which will point to the text subcircuit that you want to use for simulating. Here is the recipe:
This parameter holds the name of the subcircuit file to use during simulation for this cell.
Edit the simInfo section of the netlist for the spectre simulator (assuming you will simulate in spectre)
You must modify the simulation information to recognize the model property and support the parameters passed into the subcircuit file.
Note: if the netlist is in spice syntax, at the top of the file you should add the following statement:
