I'm using IC126.96.36.1990.14
ADE L works fine for me however when I try to run ADE XL the netlister adds a .definitionFile containing an incorect model file. As a result of this the netlist has an error an the simulation fails.
Where should i look in the netlister files to find this .definitionFile and overwrite it. Or where can i find the script that compiles the netlist.
Thanks for your help
Presumably this is set in the Setup->Simulation Files in the test editor. Maybe it is being defaulted by the .cdsenv :
spectre.envOpts definitionFiles string "/path/to/whatever"
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thanks for the reply.
I can't find any definitionFiles in my .csdenv or .cdsinit
Could the definitionFile be set by a different file other than .cdsenv ?
The models file isn't set in Setup/Simulations File, I define a different model file there.
ADE L works fine for me, ADE XL has this problem with the extra model file being entered into the netlist,
Is there any way to get ADE XL to use a fixed netlist location and not create new directories for each Run?
In reply to dannyo:
Maybe it's in a libInit.il for one of your libraries? Probably the best thing is to contact customer support so that we can look into this.
