While plottinhg results from transient simulation from extracted view, I am getting following error. Please advise a solution
ERROR (WIA-1006): Unable to plot expression <VT("/I0/26274:gnd_ana" "/home/s1147823/UPVLC/cadenceAMS180A6/DAC/Sim/DAC_UPVLC/DAC_CELL_TB/adexl/results/data/Interactive.0/psf/DAC_UPVLC:DAC_CELL_TB:1")>
because it does not evaluate to an object that can be plotted, like a waveform or
parametric wave. See the Visualization & Analysis Tool documentation for information
about the types of objects that can be plotted in Visualization & Analysis Tool. Only
the expressions that evaluate to those objects can be plotted.
*Warning* Wave1 is not a waveform object that can be displayed and
will be DELETED automatically.
Did that signal get saved? Does it show up in the Results Browser?
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thanks for the reply
I searched in the results browser. But the search did not return any matches for the specified net. I searched *4572* for the net /I0/4572:gnd_ana . In ADEXL test editor, I have set Outputs- Save all - Selected , since this is a large extracted netlist.
Another point to add. Since /I0/4572:gnd_ana is from extracted view, I tried to plot it directly by Test Editor --> Outputs --> To be plotted --> Select on Schematic and then pointed to 4572:gnd_ana.
Also in ADEXL expressions, I used calculator to plot VT("/I0/4572:gnd_ana") , which was giving an eval error
In reply to aravindvj:
If it's not in the results browser, it didn't get saved. Does the signal appear in the "save" statements at the bottom of the netlist? Were there any warnings about it in the spectre log file?
It was there netlist (save section) as shown below
save I0.\4572\:gnd_ana I0.\7049\:gnd_ana
saveOptions options save=selected
I got following warnings in spectre log
WARNING (SPECTRE-8281): `I0.4572\:gnd_ana' is not a node nor an instance name.
WARNING (SPECTRE-8286): Ignoring invalid item `I0.4572\:gnd_ana' in save statement.
WARNING (SPECTRE-8281): `I0.7049\:gnd_ana' is not a node nor an instance name.
WARNING (SPECTRE-8286): Ignoring invalid item `I0.7049\:gnd_ana' in save statement.
It seems somehow the extracted node is not saved.
Does the net exist in the netlist?
You might be best going to customer support with this - it's really difficult to debug without being able to see the data.
