I have a general question about the warning "Zero diagonal found in Jacobian"
I use spectre(7.2) to simulate some designs and I get sometimes this warning "Zero diagonal found in Jacobian" (as in the example below), even if the simulation converges and the results seems correct.
what's the effect of a " Zero diagonal found in Jacobian" on the simulation results ?
Is it possible that Jacobian reordering lead to convergence problem or error/innacuracy in the results ?
Thanks for your help,
Best Regards !

Hi isazulkcIt is possible that such messages might lead to inaccurate simulation results. Would you please retry the simulation using the latest version of spectre (188.8.131.525.isr11) to see if the messages still appear?Best regardsQuek
In reply to Quek:
I'm using now Spectre 184.108.40.2060.isr16. With this version of Spectre there is no more jacobian warnings with Spectre simulator (at least in the ones I have done so far), but it still appear during some AMS simulations.<
In reply to isazulkc:
Hi KC"ncsim" executable used in AMS simulations comes from INCISIVE package and not MMSIM package. MMSIM package is only for spectre/ultrasim simulations. You can also upgrade your INCISIVE package to the latest 12.1 version to see if it can resolve your problem.Best regardsQuek
