    A problem in spectre netlist generation Reply

    Hi, everyone.

    I met a problem when I tried to simulate my circuit after I modified it.When I click the "Netlist and Run", the status of ADE stopped on " Generate netlist...." . The process seems to be dead. And I have to kill it. If I create a new circuit, there will be no problem.

    Anybody met this problem before? What should I do?

    Did you look in the CIW to see if there were any error messages?

    Thank you.

    I simulated the circuit again. There were not any error messages in the CIW.

    The CIW just stopped on

    " Delete psf data in.....

     generate netlist...

    Begin Incremental Netlisting ... "

    and I can't do any click but kill the process with kill command.

    This is the kind of thing that's probably best handled by going via customer support - log a service request at sourcelink.cadence.com .

    What version are you using? (what does it say on the Help->About... window for the version number, or type getVersion(t) in the CIW).

    How big is the design it's trying to netlist?

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Thank you for your reply.

    The problem is resovled. I tried to rename my circuit and successed. There were four underlines in the name of circuit before that, maybe too many. However I don't know why ADE can generate netlist of my another circuit whose name has more than four underlines. Anyway, the prolem which troubles me long is resovled at last.

    Best wishes
