    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

  2. 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..
