I am using MMSIM 7.1, but HB analysis option is not available in the ADE analyses list.
I can chose pss and chose FB engine, but couldn't find any separate HB analyses tab. Any idea ?
I am using MMSIM7.1, IC5141
Are you using a recent enough subversion of IC5141 (check the date - I think it would need to be from December 2008 or so onwards)?
Do you have the tools link in your MMSIM71 installation - look at <MMSIM71instDir> and see if there is a link called "tools" pointing to tools.lnx86 or tools.sun4v - or whatever platform you're using. I think that must be there, otherwise the flex balance choice wouldn't appear on the form.
Make sure you haven't got another MMSIM release earlier in your path.
Probably the first is the most likely explanation though...
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Actually I have the same problem as the first post. I use MMSIM7.1 and I have Frequency Balance option under PSS, PNOISE and PAC but no seperate analysis as HB. Does anyone know if HB is replaced completely by FB or there should be a separate option as HB?
In reply to gozenk:
Your IC subversion needs to be at least:
IC126.96.36.1990.5.129 (USR6 or later is recommended)
And later subversions to access the MMSIM 7.1 new features via the GUI. This is documented in Cadence Online Support (http://support.cadence.com) Solution 11514518:SpectreRF IC GUI support for new MMSIM 7.1 release http://support.cadence.com/wps/mypoc/cos?uri=deeplinkmin:ViewSolution;solutionNumber=11514518 I also recommend looking at Solution 11575904: What is the difference between hb/hbac/hbnoise and the harmonic balance Q/PSS Q/PAC, Q/Pnoise http://support.cadence.com/wps/mypoc/cos?uri=deeplinkmin:ViewSolution;solutionNumber=11575904which discusses the difference between (for example) Q/PSS and hb analyses, Q/PAC and hbac analyses.
