I am trying to use AMS simulator for my mixed signal design. I have no specified exmple libraries in the documentation in the installation directories of CADENCE software and when I complained about the same my Cadence adminstartor told me that he downloaded the files very recently. So I am trying to define user defined connect rules modules as specified in the AMS simulator reference manual in the Mixed signal aspects chapter. But when I try to incude connetmodule in the DFII environment with top module as "connectmodule" it says top module cant be connect module. I tried to incude the connect module into another file with some other module as top module but in that ase connect modules are not identified and mixed nets are fail at elaboration stage. I tried to make it know to elaborator through a statement like "ncelab crules" where crules is a connectrules module identifier. But the elaborator reports crules model not found. What is the correct method to inculde the connectrules modules in the IC5141 environment???Thanis in advance for any help.
Please run through the tutorials in the documentation. That will make it clearer.Andrew.
Also you might look at papers presented at BMAS (www.bmas-conf.org) - my paper last year was about connect_modules for CML style signals.. But I probably assumed some knowledge of how to use them.. Jbd
>I have no specified exmple librariesCadence includes many Connect Modules in the IUS hierarchy. Include the following libary file:$AMSHOME/tools/affirma_ams/etc/connect_lib/cds.liband run the amsConnectLibCompile script available here:$AMSHOME/tools/affirma_ams/etc/install/amsConnectLibCompileRegards,Samir Jafferali
