I want to know model names of nonprescalar_rc.cir_en* and prescalar_rc.cir_en*  (which are encrypted ).

Hi,

I am not sure of what is the ask here. Can you clarify more please?

The zip file on the website consists of SPICE model of ADC input. There is a Readme file in the zip file. Can you please go through that?

Thank you for  your replay.

I read the Readme.

At first, I thought that only including the model file in test bench was OK. But there is an error from simulator like this.

 

So I think the test bench needs  an instance from the model and some voltage sources.

But I am not sure of how to script test bench because the  Readme does not explain the model name and port names .

(I don't know the model name and port names from the model file that is encrypted.)

Hi,

The error message is missing in your previous reply. Can you please put it once again?

Also, please indicate which simulator you are using and how are you trying to use the model?

Thank you for your reply.

I could simulate normally by using these files. I appreciate it.
