[PDF] Slot Mode Setup at ADS

Question asked by Chih Yuan Tu Employee on Jan 7, 2016

To improve simulation speed.

*When to use?
For large and good ground plane, we use slot mode to model it as a perfect ground.

*Some suggestion
Users need to judge when to use slot mode. In general, if the ground plane is well designed, slot mode can yield comparative results as strip mode. However, ground plane are broken pieces, for example, there is slot under the transmission line, slot mode will fail to take this into consideration.
