    Monte Carlo simulation with TSMC 0.13u

    Hi all,
    After reading some threats in the forum, I couldn't find an answer to my question - I am using a TSMC 130nm RF spice model and trying to simulate mismatch in Cadence ADXL with MonteCarlo analysis, with no luck.
    I was able to simulate corners with no problem (SS,FF,TT,SF,FS) but when choosing a MonteCarlo corner (or at least thinking I am choosing such one). I receive the following error :

    I chose the corner - "MAC", which I think is the best fit for MonteCarlo as you can see :

    my MOSFET is "nch".

    Appreciate your help on what I am doing wrong/where to look/etc,etc...

    Thanks,

    Everything is in process documentation.
    You should use devices with postfix "_mac" . You can switch you devices manually or by script (if exist in your PDK setup)

    I just found this in the PDK -
    >>>>spice model notice<<<<
    The current version of spice model still doesn't support Monte Carlo simulation.
    The Monte Carlo model will be support in the feature.
    :/
