    APS license usage Reply
    It is great to get ~4X simulation speed boost and improved convergence with APS single thread option. But, I do not understand why it eats up two licenses (Virtuoso_APS_MMSIM and Virtuoso_Multi_mode_Simulation). I am just using single thread option. Also, what is the difference between APS SC and APS XL licenses? Thank you.

    Hi zwang

    I believe that you are refering to "Virtuoso_APS_MMSIM_Lk" license. Actually this license is just for tracking the version of MMSIM license and is issued together with the actual "Virtuoso_Multi_mode_Simulation" license. You can refer to COS solution 11514566 for more explanation on MMSIM licensing.


    Best regards

    Note:  COS solution 1154566 has been replaced with COS Article 20044367.
