I am having some trouble getting a channel simulation to work using an HSPICE model on one end and an IBIS-AMI model on the other. Is this possible? I get the following HSPICE error when trying to kick off the simulation:
**error** Model 'v6_gth_ami_rx' is not found
**error** <path here> difficulty in reading input
Is there any documenation that I can follow in mixing these two types of models?
It appears that HSPICE does not accept the [Algorithmic Model] keyword in the IBIS file. Comment that section and then you can use HSPICE for the channel characterization step in the AMI channel analyzer. You can manually assign the DLL and AMI files to appropriate end of the channel in the AMI channel analyzer setup.
