    Referencing symbols with buses during SpiceIn Reply

    I am trying to import a spice netlist using SpiceIn, and one of the instances in the netlist references a cell in one of my libraries.  I have setup a device_map to has the port ordering and breaks up the bus.  The symbol view of this cell has a bus, so when I run SpiceIn, I get the error message:

    "Found a terminal name mismatch, can not find terminal(s)  busA<2> busA<1> ..."

    My symbol has busA<2:0> as one of the ports.

    My netlist has:

     Xdut busA<2> busA<1> busA<0>

    My device_map file has

    busA<2> busA<1> busA<0> 

     (without the device_map file, it complains about the difference in the number of terminals)

     

    Do I need to manually hack my CDF data to break up any buses?  It seems crazy that Virtuoso SpiceIn cannot recognize a bus in the symbol view and split it.  Any ideas?


    Thanks,
    Brian
