I'm from university of southern california. I'm using cadence on school's server. However, whenever I try to use calculator to take derivertive or FFT of certain signal, it shows nilERROR (WIA-1091): Data transfer to Visualization & Analysis Tool failed. For assistance, contact Cadence Customer Support with the diagnostic information. The same error appears when I try to take pss simulation. All of my classmates are also running in to this problem. We cann't find the reason. Can someone help us?
It would be useful to know what version of "cadence" you're using. In the Command Interpreter Window, do Help->About and report what it says.
Also could you post the expression in the calculator that you're trying to compute.
Can you plot the original signal prior to doing the deriv() or dft() function?

IC612 is no longer supported - since then we've had IC613, IC614 and IC615 - so if possible try using a recent hotfix of IC615. I'm sure the problem won't exist there because the way the waveform tool is implemented is very different - but it might reveal the true nature of the problem if there still is a problem.

I have similar problem too. ex. ex. running the noise simulation and trying to plot the squared output noise, I get the following error "Data transfer to Visualization & Analysis Tool failed. For assistance, contact Cadence Customer Support with the diagnostic information in the log file /ade_viva.log".I am using CADENCE 6.1 installed on UCI's server.
Could help me out?

The only version on our school's server is IC6.1.3. Does this version have a problem with calculator. I cannot use any other version. So, what should I do?!
Please ask your school to install something newer (e.g. IC615).
In general there was no problem witht the calculator in this release (because it's a vital part of the flow). However, there may be some issue with either your environment or with the specific expression which is causing something to crash and hence it can't talk to the Java process.
I did some searching, and there's no general problem reported that allows me to debug easily. A few specific issues related to large data causing it to run out of memory, but nothing general.
