*I am simulating a circuit that includes a symbol created in the layout. (EM frequency setup 50MHz-350MHz).*

*In the circuit s-parameter setup: frequency range also is 50 MHz to 300MHz.*

*Type of simulation - linear.*

*However instead of my setup the ADS is performing an _adaptive_ simulation in the range of _0MHz to 10GHz_.* See below...

*What can be wrong?*

I solved the problem by using of a Sweep plan
