I am giving two column
(time/voltage ) .txt file as stimulus in spectre .
But during simulation the error coming as like below
"Error found by spectre during circuit read in" .
I suspect it said more than that - that's usually the summary error message - after a specific error. Please show the line in the netlist with the vsource component which is referencing the file (if it's a small example, post the entire netlist; presumably you could do this with a simple circuit which just had the source and (say) a resistor to show the problem). Please give the version of spectre used. Please also show the contents of the file too.
You've given so little information, that it's very hard to know what to suggest.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
I am using ADE spectre(5.10.41_USR4.54.77) .
I have include external .txt stimulus file in spectre-> setup->simulation files-> stimulus file =path of .txt file
I am using vsource component from analoglib and seted attribute of vsourc= pwl and file(.txt) input path .
I have attached the both netlist and spectre.out file contets in Options .
In reply to Analog Design:
Managed to look at your attachment. You included the netlist rather than the input.scs (sorry, I probably should have made that clear) and as such I can't see the erroneous "include" statement of your text file (i.e. the stimulus file), but that would definitely cause this problem. The full error message pinpoints that:
Error found by spectre during circuit read-in. "/home/mudassar/simulation/test_1/spectre/schematic/netlist/stimuli/text.txt" 1: Unexpected numeric value "0.000000000000".
It's complaining about reading the file during "circuit read-in" and the numeric value is clearly indicating that it's your time-voltage file.
So remove the stimulus file setting in ADE, and then it should work. Not sure why you thought you needed to set that (I didn't say that you should do that in my previous replies)?
I removed the stimulus file setting from ADE Spectre . Only I
have given .txt (time/voltage) file path in vsource attribute .
But still it is flushing error like below
"unable to open wavwform file . No such file or directre found "
I have also attached .txt(input) file and error file contents.
Looking at the log file, it is very clear that it cannot access the file (it says no such file or directory, which is pretty clear and obvious). The chances are that you either have the path to the file incorrect; it's not permissions because it would have said "Permission denied" otherwise. The error message is a low level OS error, so it's not something that is spectre specific.
Thank you . I found the fault . That was path problem .
