ADS simulation error - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

hi,
i am trying to build an Rf power amplifier at 2.14 GHz. Whenever I try to use the optimization tool along with 1-tone Harmonic Balance simulation, the simulator crashes stating - 'Simulator Terminated Abnormally'. I don't have any idea why it is happening? Can anyone tell me what could be causing it?

Thank You,
DHRUVIT PATEL

I am not sure if this is your problem, but, if you are trying to perform a "Harmonic balance simulation" I think you should be using more than one tone. This may not be the cause of the problem, but even so, performing a one tone harmonic balance simulation will tell you nothing about the non-linear performance of the amplifier.
