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,

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.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
