For a design to run in Animate Preview, the design must pass two suitability checks to ensure that the design will produce a reasonable result in a reasonable timeframe. This is carried out before Animate Preview starts generating layout. The checks are outlined below.
The schematic design library must be associated with the technology library that the layout will be using Flat instance count (100 devices)
Up to 100 instances across all hierarchical designs linked through the hierarchy of the top (current) level.
This count does not include M-Factors or Vectored devices, these both count as 1 instance.
This condition can be overridden by selecting 'Run' on the Animate Preview context menu.
Animate Preview has recognised 80% of the cells as mosfets, resistors or capacitors.
This condition can not be overridden.
If the Circuit Suitability Check fails, right-clicking on the Preview Window 'Circuit Suitability Report' will display a dialog showing the check that has failed.
