1.5.9. Viewing Graphical Simulation Results

You can view the results of the simulation quickly as a graphical waveform display using the AvanWaves viewer included with HSPICE. With the default simulation configured by the HSPICE Writer, you can view the simulated waveforms at both the source and destination in input and output simulations.

To see the waveforms for the simulation, in the HSPICE user interface window, click AvanWaves. The AvanWaves viewer opens and displays the Results Browser.

The Results Browser lets you select which waveform to view quickly in the main viewing window. If multiple simulations are run on the same signal, the list at the top of the Results Browser displays the results of each simulation. Click the simulation description to select which simulation to view. By default, the descriptions are derived from the first line of the HSPICE file, so the description might appear as a line of asterisks.

Select the type of waveform to view, by performing the following steps:

  1. To see the source and destination waveforms with the default simulation, from the Types list, select Voltages.
  2. On the Curves list, double-click the waveform you want to view. The waveform appears in the main viewing window.

You can zoom in and out and adjust the view as desired.
