Parametric Vectors (Required Or Optional)
Parametric testing is optional, provided the SSO switching in the output vectors does not exceed the 16 (mixed mode) or 32 (100% TTL or 100% ECL) switching outputs per vector limit. If parametric vectors are required, the customer must supply all parametric simulation vectors.
AMCC requires that Parametric simulations be performed using the minimum library and then again using the maximum worst-case library.
The minimum simulation should exactly match the maximum simulation. If not, a potential timing problem could exist. Resolve the problem or consult with AMCC and send in both the minimum and maximum parametric simulations.
The parametric simulation should be performed following the procedures described in the design manual.
Parametric Simulation Documentation
The documentation required for the parametric simulation submission is prompted for by the AMCCSUBMIT program interface. Before running AMCCSUBMIT, simulation files for the paths in sampled format should exist. All AMCCSUBMIT errors should be resolved prior to submission.
Documentation included on disk or tape for each parametric simulation file includes:
Hardcopy documentation consists of:
