I am seeing some strange behavior from the AMS simulator. I have changed the MMSIM version to 11.10 to use the most updated ultrasim simulator for multithread simulation. All the environment variables have been updated accordingly. However, when I try to simulate something the log files show that the older version of ultrasim (Version 7.1) is being used!
The interesting point is that when I am still in the same cadence session, if I use ADE for simulation it uses the newer version of ultrasim (Version 11.10). I am a little confused why the ADE can see the newer ultrasim but AMS doesn't? I appreciate any help in this respect.
Here is how my environment is set up:
$ echo $CDSHOME/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IC61
$ echo $AMSHOME/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IUS82
$ echo $IUSHOME/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IUS82
$ echo $MMSIMHOME/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/MMSIM11.10
$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH /mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/MMSIM11.10/tools/lib:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IUS82/tools/lib:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IC61/tools/lib
$ echo $PATH/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/MMSIM11.10/tools/dfII/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/MMSIM11.10/tools/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/ASSURA410_FOR_614/tools/assura/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IUS82/tools/dfII/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IUS82/tools/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IC61/tools/dfII/bin:/mscad/apps/Linux/cadence/IC61/tools/bin .....
Now it makes sense why I see this strange behaviour from AMS :)
Thank you so much Andrew
