## How to plot constant VSWR circle in ADS?

Hi, Constant vswr circles are actually constant gain circles. Device itself has gain that coresponds to Gmax at a given frequency. By chosing the gain smaller that Gmax (selecting a constant gain circle instead of a dot that corespond to Gmax) you are mismatching the device. The mismach is constant on a constant gain circle, so is the vswr. You

## exporting S-parameters from HFSS to ADS?

Hi all, I am trying to export S parameter from HFSS to ads. I tried using matrix data and export S parameter and save it as touchstone file. However, when I opened this file, I get S parameters mixed Y, Z and vswr parameters. I would appreciate if someone can help Thanks.

Given a complex reflection coefficient, this measurement returns the voltage standing wave ratio. you can define a syntax as example: Examples a = vswr(S11) jackson.

Normaly I used vswr(S(1,1)) for vswr value reading. Can I read vswr value when I put a mark on the S11 trace without set any equation in ads ? Thanks a lot.

## how to simulate VSWR for Power Amplifier?

No, the spec probably means the PA should be stable into a load of vswr=3:1. You may use a tuner element (i.e. a load pull tuner) to generate an all phase load of vswr=3:1 or lower.

## simulation of VSWR of a VCO

Hello, It has been quite long time since I used ads for the last time! I believe you can do it very easily on ads... First, I'd like to say that as u may know, vswr is a measurement of loading effect on signal at transmission lines, or in other words, how big portion of the signal would propagate through the load. If that is what u are (...)

## dipole antenna design using ads momentum- mistake

Hello Pulkit, Did you expect good vswr over the full 1 to 5 GHz frequency range? The answer will be definitely NO. Do some study on the behavior of thin wire dipoles or monopoles and you will see that you need a compete other approach to make something that has good vswr/return loss over 1 to 5 GHz. Regarding the center frequency (your

## how to plot the VSWR in ADS software

You can define an equation in the data display: vswr = It is even simpler. You can also use the vswr function that enjunear has pointed to: vswr(s11)

## VSWR , GAIN of Microstrip antenna in ADS

Hi, I want to calculate the Gain,vswr of a micro strip antenna which is designed. I wanted to see the Gain,vswr change with frequency, I'm using Layout Window to create the antenna. I would really appreciate if someone can guide me.

I have designed a X-band LNA. 1st optimize at the center freq point, then optimize with the desired bandwidth, al last need manually adjust. So I got about 10% bandwidth. So you can rely on the computer software and manually adjust both. More pole of PA match is the same as the filter. If you have a LC filter, you only have one freq point pole,

## How to design a radial series stub?

I knew I had seen this recently in one of my books. Take a look at Rainee Simons, "Coplanar Waveguide Circuits, Components, and Systems". Several variations are discussed. Wadell, "transmission Line Design Handbook" has a little more info. vswr is right ..... stfw. Lot's of references there.

## LNA doubt ( help me )

we can realize an inductor for 0.3nH for all technique. but the foundry doesn't offer a model for it and you should simulate it by youself the specification decides whether you can use 70 ohm impedence match. usually the requirement for vswr is 2.0 for a reciever.

## How to measure input impedance of MC12179 frequency synthesizer for PLL design?

Did the MC12179 have an Application note? Some times they will give you a circuit to test their device. Also look at Fig 17 in the Link vswr gave, 10 Ω is a reasonable Impedance, depending on what frequency you're running at.

## which CAD tool is good for RF system design

It's hard to beat a spread sheet for link budgets and cascades, especially since you write it yourself thus you re-learn lot's of concepts. I will usually do a spread sheet then compare that to results from AWR VSS, where things like vswr, ripple, and compression point are easy to handle. VSS is pretty slick (the RFA is a sub-set of it). It's

## How to Simulate a Equivalent Circuit of an Antenna ?

Go to the Simulation-S-Parameters toolbox. Add a Term(ination) block, and an S1P block (you may have to go up to the blank box in the toolbar, just type in S1P and hit Enter). Also, add an S_P controller and set it up to sweep across your frequency range. Connect the Term to the lumped element circuit and ground the other end of both networks.

## transmission line Q calculation

Assuming that Q is relatively high (say >10), you can determine Q based on the complex impedance versus frequency curve. For a circuit that behaves around its resonant frequency as an RLC circuit (for example quarter wave sections), the -3 dB impedance points are at the positions where |Im(Z)|=Re(Z). When plotted on a smith chart the cur

## patchantenna bandwidth

How do you define bandwidth? Frequently antenna bandwidth is defined as the frequency band where the SWR or return loss meets certain criteria (for example vswr < 2).
