    ADE(Analog Design Environment) display problems Reply
    Hello,

    I am using Virtuoso IC6.14 and MMSIM 7.1 or 10.1 version for simulation.

    But I found the result of the simulation was upside down(Please check the picture).

    I am currently using CentOS 6.4 for the environment.

    Please let me know what the problem is.

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    Matthew,

    I won't make the obvious comment about you being in Australia (I'm in England), but actually there was no picture.

    WIth this forum you can't paste in pictures - but you can use the Options tab when posting to attach a picture. Maybe you could do that?

    Thanks,

    Andrew.

    Thanks Andrew,

    I added the picture. Please check it again.

    The picture is reversed in the horizontal direction.

    Regards,

    Matthew

    Matthew,

    That's very odd - I've never seen that before. The only thing I can think of is that there is some issue with the Java implementation on your (unsupported) OS.

    So two things:

    1. Try a supported OS (e.g. RHEL5) and see if that fixes it
    2. Use IC615 (latest hotfix) or IC616 (IC616 is the currently supported version, as hotfixes of IC615 have finished). The ViVA graph is now directly implemented in Qt rather than using Java - so it's highly unlikely the issue will occur any more. Even then, CentOS is an unsupported OS. There have been some major developments in the waveform tool, so there would be a lot of benefits in moving to IC615 or IC616 anyway.

    Kind Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your response.

    Ok, I will try RHEL5 and IC615 or IC616.

    In my opinion, the Spectre simulation is included in MMSIM package not IC.

    Is that still related to IC version?

    Regards,

    Matthew

    The MMSIM stream contains the simulator (spectre or Ultrasim), but the waveform tool is from the IC stream. So you need an updated IC stream...

    This problem is not related to the simulator version.

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Thanks Andrew,

    I have tested 6.1.5 on my CentOS machine and it is working well.

    The display was great.

    Thanks for your professional help.

    I did not check RHEL machine yet and I will let you know when I finish the test.

    Regards,

    Matthew
