Dynamic glitch check with spectre option
Aug 03rd, 2017, 6:25am
 
Hi All,

I want to use glitch check with spectre (spectre.scs) option. I am using following way but report (.xml) was not generated.

glitch_chk dyn_glitch node=["INV_1"] duration=10n high=1.2

the following message is generated regarding from log file about glitch check :

Design checks inventory:
        dyn_glitch 1

Circuit Check::Setting up dynamic checks...

Circuit Check::Set up dynamic checks done.

 

Is it the right way or not? if not, kindly suggest me of the proper way of dynamic glitch check.

Based on your previous post, INV_1 is a subckt, not a node - so maybe that's why it doesn't work.

This example works fine:
Code:
//

Vglitch (INV_1 0) vsource type=pwl wave=[0 0 40n 0 41n 1.0 43n 1.0 44n 0 100n 0 101n 1.0 122n 1.0 123n 0.0]

glitch_chk dyn_glitch node=["INV_1"] duration=10n high=1.2

tran tran stop=200n 



By the way, I think you might be posting these questions in the wrong forum - I'm assuming you're asking these related to spectre (which is a circuit simulator, not an AMS simulator)?

Not that it matters that much!

Regards,

Andrew.

Hi,

Do I want to glitch check for particular signal? If yes, than how possible?

You appear to be asking me a question that only you can answer - I've no idea if you want to do a glitch check for a particular signal.

If you were looking at a signal called INV_1, it would be what I showed above. If infact your subckt was called INV_1 and you wanted to check (say) a signal called clk inside that, then it would be:

Code:
glitch_chk dyn_glitch node=["clk"] duration=10n high=1.2 subckt=["INV_1"] 



Regards,

Andrew.

It's Working now.

Thanks, Andrew.
