Hi all,

I been working on a switched-capacitor DC-DC converter, and I want run pss and pac to get PSRR for my converter. When I use an ideal clock source (i.e., vpluse) to drive the converter, PSS converge fine. However, when I use my ring oscillator to drive the converter, PSS won't converge.

Here are my netlist and simulation log.

Could anyone provide me with some insights?
Thanks!

Be sure you are using the true period where end = start for -all- nodes.

For example if your clock network begins with a /2 to ensure 50/50 duty, you would need to have period 2X input clock period. And that's with no subsequent divisions that would take longer to wrap back to t=0.
