Is there any way to annotate the currents without adding the node/terminal to the ADE output section ?
I know we can add the nodes by "outputs->to be saved -> select the nodes", this will save the currents and we can annotate in the design. I have a very large schematic and if I add for every node, the output list will be so long.
Please let me know if there is a other way for this.
Perhaps I am not understanding your question, but if you are looking to annotate the DC current in a component from a DC operating point analysis, yes. The currents for a resistor, active device (MOS, BJT, etc.. ) are saved as part of the DC operating point analysis and can be displayed on the schematic after the analysis using the "Annotate DC operating point" feature.
Is this what you had in mind with your question?
The command and resultant display of some current information from a DC operating point analysis are provided in Figure 1 and 2 respectively.
My prior reply was posted when I logged in and was not completed - sorry! The figures are below.
Thanks for replying. Its similar to what you have explained. The "Annotate DC operating point" shows the device current(Id, I etc). I want the terminal current to be displayed in the schematic. I can do that using "Annotate DC current", but for this every terminal need to be added to the ADE output section. If I don't add the terminal it shows as "n/a" as the terminal current.
So is there any way to see the node/terminal currents without adding them to the ADE output section.

As detailed in the Cadence On-line support RAK "Using Spectre SAVE Effectively" at URL:
did you consider adding the following file as an include file in your ADE Simulation Files GUI?
Example filename: saves.scs
File "saves.scs" content:
save *:currents depth=1
Include the above save.scs file from the ADE GUI under the Setup > Model Libraries section.
This will avoid you adding the terminal currents as specific outputs as ADE outputs. Does this help?
I am also surprised that, this didn't work for me as well. I have gone through the RAK and tried some other combinations as well.
