Hi All, I am trying to use monte carlo simulation for a bandgap voltage reference. When I followed the procedure in this forrum and other tutorial, and click "run" for "monte carlo sampling", it looks like nothing was executed. I post my setup and hope anybody can advise about it.
1. I have a cellview named "monte_carlo". In ADE L, the simulation output is "\net55" and it runs well over temperature -50C to 125C (DC simulation in sweeping the temperature). I selected and set "tt" to allmodels.scs, and select "design.scs". After running sussceesully, I saved this state as "temp".
2. I open ADE XL->"create new view"->"open in 'new window'"
3. Create test and load the state "temp".
Now the setup looks like this [Since I cannot insert an imagine from my computer here, I created a same thread in another place. The setup file picture is shown in http://www.edaboard.com/thread281229.html#post1203445. Please kindly go to this post to see the picture, sorry for the inconvenience]
When I click "run", it never showed any progress. For example, I set number of points to 100, then it always show 0/100.
1.Could anybody advise how can I make simulation run? My target is to achieve some statistic distribution of output reference voltage.
2.Do I need to load more scs file here? like process.scs?
Thank you very much!
Hi Andrew, the previous issue for monte carlo is caused by the IC6.1.5 itself. Now we have fixed it and make it run. However, I still got the problem in making the historgram.As you can see from the following pictures, I set my simulation, and define my output as net055. But after my monte carlo simulation, there is no option for me to choose. The only thing I got is "Y axis". Could you teach me how can I probe the distribution of my output data?
