In ADE XL (assuming you're using IC61X; there's no UI support for doing what you want in IC5141), on the "Gear" icon next to the Monte Carlo Sampling cyclic choice (also available via Run->Monte Carlo Sampling in the pulldown), there's a button at the bottom of the form called "Specify Instances/Devices". If you bring this up it allows you to specify devices for mismatch - either as an inclusion or exclusion list. It's partly used to allow the mismatch to correlate between multiple tests which have different testbenches, but can also be used for the purpose you describe.
The mmcflag parameter that Shawn describes must be specific to a particular PDK because it's not a parameter in spectre as far as I know (certainly not for bsim4 or bsim3v3; to be honest, the mismatch variation is handled outside of the model, so I can't see how it would be done in the device model. For a PDK they might choose to multiply the mismatch variations by this flag inside their subckt models, but as I said, that would be PDK-specific).

In reply to smlogan:
I am very new in runing mc simulations, so my question could be "strange". I am runing spectre mc from command line. I would like exclude some instances from mismatch. Is it posible to define "Specify instances/devices --> specify instance to ignore" in my simulation file?
In reply to jerry124:
Yes. Type "spectre -h montecarlo" and you'll see:
10 ignore=[...] If set, no variation is applied to specified subcircuit instances. In addition, all subcircuits instantiated under this instance do not have variation enabled. By default, mismatch is applied to all subcircuit instances in the design and the process is applied globally.
So you can specify on the montecarlo analysis statement ignore=[I1 I2 I3] etc.
I am using cadence 5, with UI. In this case how can one turn off the mismatches of an instance or say a particular mos. Other words, how can one see the contribution of this mos to to the total functionality under mismatch simulation.
In reply to yaathrikan:
There's no support for this in the IC5141 UI.
