    ADE XL: Strange Behaviour of Measurements in MonteCarlo Mode Reply

    Hi all,

     Yesterday evening I moved a simulation from ADE L to ADE XL to perform some MonteCarlo runs.

    As usual I imported the testbench settings into ADE XL and made a quick nominal run to see if all

    my measurements still check out fine. Everythink was ok, therefore I moved on to MonteCarlo Mode.

    And here the strangest thing happend. Depending on the status of the "Save Data to Allow Family Plots"

    switch in the MonteCarlo "Other Option" field, some measurements fail while others don't. In fact the

    behaviour is completely inverted. Measurements that fail with the switch turned on fail with the switch turned off,

    and vice versa :( So I can't get a setting where all of my measurements are reporting results.

    The measurements that work for switch turned on look like this:

    average(getdata("nt_mir0:region" ?results 'dc))

    The measurements that fails with switch turned on look like this:

    value(v("/vout2" ?result 'dc) -40)

    As mentioned before, if I switch the setting then the first measurement fails and the second is working ...

    Also the normal simulation (ADE L and single run ADE XL) reports back all the measurement values.

    The IC version I used is 6.1.5.500.9 on Linux.

    I would be greatful for some pointers about what's happening here ...

    Thank you

    Best Regards

    Andi

    Andi,

    Not sure why this should be the case. Please contact customer support so that we can take a look.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
