In Cadence 6.1.5(.500.7) I can't find ways to plot in polar format the complex ac gain of circuits (and spars, and stb, ...). This was available in AWD in Cadence 5.1. In VIVA XL I can go to Graph > Display Type > Real vs Imag, but the functionality seems broken: It plots Imag against frequency, not the much hoped for curve in the complex plane that AWD was able to deliver. If there is a way, please let me know.
Related: I notice that the number of ocean commands to drive viva plotting is very small to the large set that used to be available for AWD. I have scripts from Cadence 5.1 days that use many of these functions to produce beautiful plots. Is Viva going to be made as powerful as AWD, or if not, is there ANY way I can get results to plot in AWD while simulating in 6.1.5?
