18.104.22.168. PVT Simulations
To perform process, voltage, and temperature (PVT) simulations, manually modify the spice decks in a two step process:
- Remove the double-counting compensation circuitry from the simulation file. This is required as the amount of double-counting is dependent upon how the Intel® Quartus® Prime software calculates delays and is not based on which PVT corner is being simulated. By default, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software provides timing numbers using the slow process corner.
- Select the proper corner for the PVT simulation by setting the correct HSPICE temperature, changing the supply voltage sources, and loading the correct transistor models.
A more detailed description of HSPICE process corners can be found in the family-specific HSPICE model documentation.
