Got problems simulating multiboard project using batch simulation

Hi Steve,

 

I am simulating a multiboard project. There is a connector with a SPICE model between two boards. I want to simulation crosstalk effect using batch simulation.

 

But after simulation, I have got errors for all the traces going through the connector. The warning says, "Batch mode does not support SPICE models".

 

Then I searched for solutions in the support of hyperlynx website. I found a similar problem asking about simulation of connector. One of the solutions says "If you are running a multiboard simulation then connectors which are part of that system do not require additional models." (http://supportnet.mentor.com/reference/technotes/public/technote.cfm?tn=mg59549) So I tried to simulate without any model assigned to the connector (use "short" or "simple" instead of the SPICE model). But the result shows a different warning, "Missing IC model(s); unable to simulate".

 

What should I do?

 

Thank you so much!!
