I am aware of three ways to export a schematic from ADS in a netlist format:
- using AEL
- Simulate > Generate Netlist
- Tools > Netlist Export > Create ADS Front End netlist...
The first two generates the same format, while the last one seems to depend on other options.
To my knowledge, File > Import > Design is the only tool that can import netlist files. However, it seems that none of the above exports can be re-imported into ADS without errors.
Ultimately, I am looking to export a netlist, make design changes to the netlist file, then import the netlist back into ADS (either updating the old schematic or creating a new one).
My question: is it possible to export a schematic in a netlist format then import it into ADS again? Or, any way to simulate a generated netlist could be sufficient. But it would make sense if there was a way to import an exported netlist format.
