    how to use coupled inductor in design architech-ic

    robbyku13

      Hi,

      I'm robby, I want to ask question for coupled inductor. How to use coupled indcutor in design architech-ic?, because if I run simulation eldo in schematic, I get error "OBJECT "K1" :Undecleared inductor:L2. If I open the symbol of coupled inductor I just get Dummy Port. can I get solution for this.

          Hello Robby,

           

          Please check the netlist. When you use the $MGC_IC_DEVICE_LIB/coupled_inductor instance, you should see three lines in your netlist similar to the following.

           

          L2 N$2326 N$2327 0.4m

          L3 N$2328 N$2329 0.7m

          K1 L2 L3 0.5

           

          The single instance defines the two inductors used by the coupled_inductor. Did you use this same symbol? Which version of the Mentor Graphics tools are you running?

           

          Thanks,

          Ron
