Driving an Input to High Impedence in Hspice

Hi,

I want to put an input of a gate to high impedence state (tristate or
basically disconnect from vdd or gnd) at some point of time during the
hspice simulation. I tried the manuals of Hspice and couldnt find
information regarding this. I would be greatful if anyone could
provide any help in this regard.

Thanks

Sreekumar

Construct a discrete gate/buffer with transistors!

Note that floating an output often results in simulation failure.
Your'll probably have to have a large value resister to a dc node at the
tri-state output.

you can if you don't mind inverting the input.
place a simple NPN switching transitor there.
C to your existing input, E to another Gate output
to put the emiter to ground and the base will be your input.
of you can use a Tri-State buffer..
