How to simulate starRC generated .SPF files through ADE?
I am unable to use the .SPF files through "config" view unlike the calibre extracted views.
With the calibre extracted views, i can directly change the "view to use" in config setup to calibre extracted view and simulate directly in ADE.
As the starRC .SPF file is like text file, i am unable to use though "config".
As a result, i am manually editing the netlist file by including the .SPF file and running through command line instead of ADE.
please help me on this...
A couple of ways - one is to follow the method covered in Tawna's Blog. The other approach is to do the part in the blog related to getting the termOrder correct in the CDF, and then use the View to use->SPICE file in the hierarchy editor (I think this only works in IC61X).
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Could you please elobarate about the second apporach??
I am new to this about editing CDF parameters and all that stuff..
In reply to reddy1553:
You'd still need to set up the termOrder in the CDF as in Tawna's blog - but it avoids you having to create a stopping view (e.g. a "spectre" view). Instead you'd use the hierarchy editor to create a config view (read the manuals on that if you've not done it before), and then over the cell in question (or instance in question) in the hierarchy editor do Right Mouse->View To use->SPICE and pick the spice file you want to include.
Note that you can't do this in IC5141 - only IC61X.
