    stop a spectre simulation having a break condition Reply
    Hi, I have a very important question about spectre simulation (ADE). How can I stop a simulation with a conditionally break. What I mean is, where I can enter a function or the like in the simulation settings, where I can define a break condition and how I can do this. For example I want to break a simulation for a certain voltage value. Please help me! I don't know, how I can do this!

    Regards

    Daniel Pietsch

     Can it be, that I need the sevStopEngine function. I think I can put this function in the programming to stop the simulation when the sim reachs a certain value.

    Please help me.

     Hi Peach99,

       You can use an "assert" to  give an error, use Verilog-A $finish, or try Spectre-MDL where you can end the sim after you've collected all your values.
