Error seen during EM simulation

Question asked by siri on May 8, 2018


I am trying to generate s parameter file for a design. I have a clock tree routing with shields on both sides (top and bottom of a horizontal metal layer).

while running EM simulation in ADS I see the following error. 

please help me figure this out.

ERROR message seen:
