CAD: Measure nonlinearity in cadence

A faster (?) way to simulate linearity instead of looking at the FFT of a sinusoid – or whatever – is to use the pss analysis (periodic steady-state). The distortion can then be easily calculated using the “harmonic” function. The pss analysis is normally faster than the transient analysis.
