[SI-LIST] Re: how to reduce hspice run-time?

Yoni, 

You may want to reduce the circuit by finding the transfer functions and
then use controlled voltage and current sources.  Look up the LAPLACE
keyword in your HSPICE manual.

Subject: [SI-LIST] how to reduce hspice run-time?



hi,
we are running 12 i/o buffers, connecting to a sub-file which simulates a
packge (with capacitors and all), driving another 12 i/o (used as receivers)
through 12 transmision lines (the receivers connects to a package too). the
pc runs it for 1 hour. it is pantium 4  1.8GHz, with 0.5GB RAM.
is there a way to reduce the time that the simulation runs? maybe reducing
timestep? how do i do it?
it is important since we are planing on running much more than 12 buffers.
