I have created layout a for transmission line using commercial IC technology PDK and performed sp simulation in ADS.Is it possible to get loss parameters(RLGC) of the transmission line in ADS so that I can model the loss mechanisms.
A big question that you might have is, what is the difference between Pre-Compliance and Compliance testing? What makes Pre-Compliance important? Pre-Compliance is a low risk, cost effective method to ensure your DUT will pass final Compliance testing. Waiting until the end of a product development cycle for compliance testing is risky due to… Show more
HP 85047A contains HP 5086-7489 test port coupler which grossly fails simple directivity test (terminate with known-good APC-7 50 ohm load, and almost all source drive signal appears on the coupled port save for a notch/dip at mid-span. As the history of the test set is not known, abuse is suspected. Visual inspection inside the RF coupler… Show more
Hi all, Is it possible to simulate S-Parameter of a 4-Ports device in ICCAP using external simulator such as Hspice or Spectre? Thanks. Edited by: mhma on Apr 18, 2013 12:36 AM
Hi everyone, I'm just starting to use Momentum and I'm trying to perform a simple simulation of a microstrip matching network. The problem is that I'm getting that error when simulating, and the result doesn't seem accurate, especially at high frequencies, when compared to the circuit simulation. I'm using standard FR4 substrate, Er 4.5 and… Show more
The peak to peak description in the "Compatibility and Differences: 34465A and 34410A..." says it is cumulative in the 34465A model but it does not seem to behave that way. It suggests (and the operating guide uses it in the sample code) to use clear (DATA2:CLEAR) before INIT. However I get the same result whether or not I use the clear. If it… Show more
Regarding the DAQ application, I have used this Benchvue app with the 34972A for the past 3 years. For the first time, I am seeing an error when attempting to load an instrument state to the device after connecting it via USB. I haven't tried over ethernet yet. But I build up a state, save it, and cannot load it again. I also cannot load from a… Show more
Hi, I'm using the DSO9404A oscilloscope as a pulse counter. I trying to build statistics from measuring the mean of many measurements of pulse counting. My problem is that the scope only takes under account measurements when there is at least 1 pulse inside the measured interval. When it sees a measurement without any pulse in it, it adds a… Show more
