What are the differences ? Which improvement ?

I found that .measure does work in 2003.3 in some case while it was good in 2002.2. I got :
"**warning**: measure equation evaluation cannot be node voltages or branch currents"

Any other bug or advantage when using the lastest (2003.3) ?

Please note that this new version (2003.03) does not use the same instructions for mesures.

in old version 2001.4 work:

.MEASURE AC 'Id_Mm13b' PARAM='CDO(xi1.Mm13b)'

in 2003.03 the same instruction get:
**warning**: measure equation evaluation cannot be node voltages or branch currents
id_mm13b= failed measure parameter failed

Hi,

Thx joe2moon! This file is really useful. I was also hoping for the full documentation of the HSpice, not only the release notes. I will be very grateful if you or somebody else could help me with that manual.

Thx.

In my experience, 2003.03-SP1 converges better than 2003.03 for mixed-signal circuits.

Do you means 2003.3-sp1 is a independent package that can be installed without 03.3?
