I've seen similar issues before - just haven't had a chance to test this and take a proper look. Which subversion of the IC tools are you using? (type getVersion(t) in the CIW and post what you get).
I'm a bit busy at the moment but will try to get to this today or tomorrow if I can.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
i can definetly confirm a strange behaviour when using the VAR("") syntax inside output expressions. For example if i sample a signal:
value( mySignal VAR("CLK") ?period (VAR("CLK") / 2) ?xName "cycle")
In ADE-XL i get an error message (unbound variable) and it fails. If i open this expression inside the calculator (small button next to the expression field) it evaluates correctly. But sometimes it works also directly inside ADE-XL.
I also found out that sometimes you doing a sweep the global variable is not a scalar value anymore. You can make the expression working again if using: value( VAR("bs") 1.0 ). Try to evaluate the variable inside the calculator and look if its a waveform or not.
In reply to mate0409:
I have the same problem.
VAR("") works by itself in ADE-XL, but no inside an expression.
The equations plot perfectly in ADE-L, just not ADE-XL.
I am using IC6.1.5-64b.500.15 MMSIM 12.1-ISR10
