I'm having very strange issue here. When I run a transient simulation, the PSF output file is named 'an1.tran' and I am not able to run any OCEAN script on it, nor to do any calculation with the Results Browser and the calculator.
It always return me the same error message in the ICW :
expression evaluation failed: val is not legal.expression evaluation failed: val is not legal.expression evaluation failed: v("clk_p" ?result "tran")"(\"lowerCase\" 0 t nil (\"*Error* lowerCase: argument #1 should be either a string or a symbol (type template = \\\"S\\\")\" nil))"
But if I write in the ICW :
plot(v("clk_p" ?result "tran"))
It work just fine.
(same if I use getData( ) )
I didn't change anything since for this to happen and I have no idea how to fix it.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Sorry for the lack of details.
ICW version : 5.1.41
Simulator : bdasim
Results Browser : Viva 6.1.5
Running from script with PSF output format. If I run interactive simulation from ADE (and setting bdaBrsim simulator) in Cadence 5.1.41, then open the PSF in the results browser of Cadence 6.1.15, I don't have any issue.
It was working just fine last week, my simulation results used to be in psf/tran.tran
Now, it's psf/an1.tran and I can't do anything of it with OCEAN scrip.
In reply to The Setlaz:
And I forgot to mention, when I type :
The command does not return the directory where the results are ? (it's a totally different one - the one from where I started Viva)
The name of the file and its contents are under the control of the simulator. You might want to contact Berkeley Design Automation's customer support, as it's their simulator.
