    Controlling spectre output format from within ADE or Ocean Reply

    Hello,

     This should be simple, but I can't seem to find it.  How can I set the spectre output format (sst2, psfbin, etc) from within ADE and also from withing Ocean?

     

    I used to use

        envSetVal("aps.envOpts" "simOutputFormat" 'string "psfbin")
        envSetVal("spectre.envOpts" "simOutputFormat" 'string "psfbin")

     back in IC51 days but that doesn't seem to work in IC61.

     

    Thanks

    -Dan

    Dan,

    It's

    envSetVal("spectre.outputs" "simOutputFormat" 'string  "psfbin")

    This is because it's on the Save Options form now. Also, from IC615 ISR3 onwards, the default is psfxl (it used to be sst2) - and I'd recommend you use that unless you have a very good reason not to because it has far better capacity and performance than either psfbin or sst2.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
