Hello, I am designing a power amplifier in cadence, but I don't know how to design matching network in cadence. I found that some papers solve this by hand calculating but deviation of this method is too large. I'd like to know whether I can design the matching network in cadence like in the ads ? (I don't have the pdk document which is (...)

Hi! I want to design a power amplifier and I know one of the simulations which should be run is HB simulation. I have started with the test circuit of the transistor. after finishing this step I tried to run HB- simulation. But for some reasons it couldn't be converged. I don't know exactly what is the source of these errors. sometimes it complain
Hi! I want to design a push-pull power amplifier in AB class. I tried to use the test circuit of the transistor in the datasheet to get some idea about designing. I'm using ads and I draw the schematic of the test I think I should run HB-simulation. But I couldn't manage to run that. but it couldn't be converged due to some (...)
What does it mean, you can't display PAE, do you see some power contours, do you got errors? Maybe specify the template you're using or make a screeshot of your schematic.
Hi; I ask how can i use the template of 'load pull technique ' in ads to display the PAE of my amplifier . In fact, i design an amplifier class AB and now i shoud enhance the efficiency so i should use the load pull technique in ads . However, when i use the template(design guide-->load pull) after that i delete the (...)

Hi all, according to Qorvo's datasheet, this device: TQP7M9103 works from 500 MHz to 4000 MHz. I have downloaded and simulated the S-parameters, and found that I can still get > 12 dB gain up to nearly 6 GHz. So my question is, what kind of limitations would I expect driving this thing beyond 4 GHz? Is P1dB likely to suffer, and if so, w
Hi. I want to use a power amplifier and a low noise amplifier in my schematic in ads. I have downloaded a design kit for required LNA from Modelithics and installed it easily in ads library , but I do not know how to install a specific PA in ads. From mini-circuit I have just downloaded (...)
ATF34143 is an LNA (Low Noise amplifier), and by definition any LNA should work in Class-A. So, good PAE (power Added Efficiency) is not the main target of performances of this transistor. For best performances follow the Avago application notes 1190 and 1191.
Hi I want to design a class AB power amplifier and I use spice model of D2201UK transistor (semelab) for simulation in ads, design guide>amplifier>DC and Bias point>FET_IV_Gm_powerCalc. but when I put my spice model instead of the default transistor, it doesn't work good.

Consider S-Parameters in small signal, it can match input and output matching network over a frequency band, but LSSP cannot do it. How (...)
In ads can you tell me in class-E power amplifier, please refer to circuit at point 'A' in Figure at o/p port, How can I plot current and voltage waveform w.r.t to Frequency? please find attached figure.112943. 112943
In ads can u tell me how to plot voltage and current waveforms at o/p port in class-E power amplifier at point A 112937. please refer to attach figure. 112937
You cannot obtain AC voltages and current in s-parameters simulations.You may just see small signal input/output relations between the ports. You have to do either HB simulation or Transient Simulation with a proper nonlinear model.If you use ads, there is a Design Guide for Large Signal Test Benches for E-Class power amplifiers, they are pr

Dear friends, How can I use optimization tools in ads to optimize drain efficiency of my class-E power amplifier? As you know, to gain a 100% efficiency (theoretically) voltage of switch and derivative of switch voltage at the time when the switch wants to be on should be zero: v_s (2π)=0 (dv_s (2π))/(d(2π))=0 So, if (...)

Hi All! I want to design an 2 stage 10ghz PA with ads can you help me about FETs, and some step in ads Thanks
The LDMOS transistors BLS6G2731-6G or BLS6G2735L-30 from NXP are specified for Class-AB pulsed RF operation in 2.7GHz - 3.1GHz range. Most probably if you back-off the output power (and losing efficiency) you can use the transistors for a Class-A PA design.

Hi everyone. I want to design a power amplifier and I need a ams CMOS C-35(nmos MN1) for my design,but I can't find it in ads library.what should I do?
ads has a example about Class-D amplifier, but that is direct freq amplifier, runing at 850MHz. You can find that amplifier in ads2011 example, about class-D and THD calculation. But the live audio class-D amplifer has freq convertion, i.e. has a clock, say 1.6MHz, and the input audio signal is a (...)
Step 1) Search this site for the information. Step 2) Google "ads power amplifier tutorial" or "ads power amplifier design" Step 3) Try to do it yourself. Step 4) When you get stuck on some thing repeat Steps 1 - 3, then post a specific question.
The given information is very few and that's why it's hard to say something for a solution. But in ads Load Pull Design Guide can be used to find Optimum Load Impedance for your power amplifier. Nevertheless, don't trust too much nonlinear model of the transistor instead ask to manufacturer for real-world measured Load Pull data.

Hi all, I am designing a RF power amplifier for my final project. The PA adapted Doherty architecture. I intend to design it for input power of 25 dBm (which is 0.316 W). If the input signal is a sinusoidal signal, how much is the peak voltage? The 25 dBm, can I consider it as a RMS value and using P = Vrms^2 / R formula? I look (...)
Dear all, Hi. I simulate a MMIC RF power amplifier (PA) in ads (advanced design system), s-param simulation is working well but harmonic balance not. Increasing the input signal power of the PA, the output signal power increases unconditionaly, even more then DC power dissipation. 3rd (...)

I tried to open the NXP library from (...)
Hi I personally prefer PA design in ads. But most of the CMOS foundry are only available in Cadence. Is it equally capable to use Cadence for PA design? I am only talking about schematic design, not layout. Did you trust the foundry's spectre model, or you develop your own model?
Hi Friends I designed a power amplifier using ads, and simulated it with Harmonic balance simulator.

the tr is not a power one. the simulation should be in small signal region. That's wrong, you are designing a PA then you have to perform large signal simulation even the power level is low. Large signal simulation (HB) is not related to power level, I assume the transistor is working in its saturation region.
Hi, I am making the layout on microstrip for a design of a medium power amplifier at 2.14 GHz. I have a problem about the use of a via hole to provide the ground at my circuitry. The via hole leads to a significant reduction in gain from 14 dB to 10 dB. Is it possible? I am using ads and my substrate MSUB has: H = (...)
