    Monte Carlo Analysis | HitKit Reply


     I was trying to perform a statistical analysis, but encountered some problems:
    1) According to this tutorial : http://asic.austriamicrosystems.com/hitkit/circuit_sim/montecarlo/monte_spectre.html     I am supposed to to open Tools -> Monte Carlo in ADE window. Unfotunatelly there is no 'Monte Carlo' under 'Tools' in ADE Window.

    2) So I switched to ADE XL, where Monte Carlo Analysis option is available. I setup a simulation according to Cadence Tutorial on adexl. When I start analysis, it just does not run. there is no error in CIW, and ADE says the simulation is in progress, but there is no effect.

     What I am trying to analyse is a simple delay cell (Inverter buffer) and  I would like to see the impact of process variations and mismatch on delay of this cell. I am using IC610 and HitKit 4.0

     Kind Regards,

    The problem might be due to this. Check to see if the gdbm package is installed on your machine.

    Anyway, check the solution linked to above for more details.
