SLPS Block: Number of inputs+outputs limited?

Hello together,

right now I am implementing the SLPS interface into a simulink model.
I planned to use a lot of inputs and outputs, and I am encountering the problem, that MATLAB crashes if I exceed a certrain number of inputs+outputs of the SLPS block (at a sum of around 112).
When I press the "RUN" button in Simulink, the "SLPS Status Window" pops up saying "Creating PSpice files....". At this point, Matlab completely freezes. As soon as I click one of the Matlab windows, I get a Windows error message telling me that Matlab is not functioning anymore, giving me the possibility to close Matlab.
If I use one input or output less in my SLPS block, the simulation runs without any problems.

So is there a limitation of the inputs/outputs for the SLPS block? Unfortunately I could not find any information about this in the documentations...
If so, is there a possible work-around to be able to use a bigger number of inputs/outputs?
If not, what could be a possible cause of my problem and how could I fix it?

I am using MATLAB R2016b (student version) and PSpice 17.2-2016 S009 on a Windows 7 machine.

Thank you very much for your help!

With best regards

Yes, there are certain issues at moment for large number of interfaces. However you have very large number of interface. Cadence is working on expanding this limit to a larger number. This will be available shortly.
