I'm unable to get my 50 cell design to simulate in a reasonable time, so have given up on that and vastly simplified the design. Now I have a new problem, where a vector is missing. I just can't work it out - could someone put me out of my misery and take a look? What am I doing wrong?
in gds, run ngspice simulation.spice, and it will fail with a message about no vector called lock
lock is the output of the design, and is directly connected to a flip flop
I think I've worked out that if a node never changes, then no vector will be created. not sure about that
but the verilog test bench that does the same thing clearly shows the output togggling

@Matt Venn: Your "top.spice" file contains black-box entries for all the standard cells, which means your netlist is effectively empty of any devices. This is probably the result of extracting the netlist from a layout using abstract views of all the standard cells.
