hspice for solaris

Hi

Does someone have any comparison of 10k or more transistors simulated in windows, solaris and Linux for comparision?

hspice for windows

Does 10K = 10.000 transistors ?
If yes, forget it and use hsim or nanosim, for example. The run time is too long with hspice in any platform.

solaris hspice

Hi,

I have run some simulations of cca. 10000 analog and digital transistors on Linux, but I don't have a comparison to other systems .
There are no problems with such a simulation under Linux, of course it takes some time :).

nope, not using that many mosfets, i'm an analog guy.

but for ~400 mosfets and a handful of bjt's, win HSPICE is 3x faster than linux HSPICE on the same Athlon 1800. Too bad Tanner is the only nice win platform!

Hello,
I tried ~700 transistors of analog ADC design; sloaris hspice98.2 stalled at convergence problem, but run antrim or ADMS is OK and both consumed a equal weight time to dump result. No chance to try later solaris hspice version because tools and sun machine are original from company....
Heard about simulation runs under the same hspice version, Windows' simulator is the fastest...
