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, thank you for your advise. This net055 is the output of a bandgap voltage reference, so generally it is almost a DC. If I want to see what is the variation of it, like you said, I want to see in a specific temperature, the transient output at 1s, how can I set up for monte carlo simulation? Could you advise?
