Hello, I need help with ADS. I'm a beginner….

I want to simulate isolation between 2 cables. Each cable is represented as RLC circuit.
I'd like to inject sine wave into Port 1 and measure the signal at the adjacent cable.
How can I do it?
S-Parameter simulation? How?
Or maybe AC simulation, name both ports Vin and Vout and use an equation?

Thanks in advance. Andrei

Hello Andrei,

To my understanding you can´t simulate isolation in the way you described. You will need to use a distributed model of coupled lines. There are several models available in ADS according ot the number of coupled lines and this is located under the TL library. To do that you have to model your cable as a distributed line, based on this model you can also define the distance between the lines and calculate the isolation (Coupling) between them. You can do it with linear (S-parameter) simulation and terminate to the unused ports.

Hope it helps.

Best regards,

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 ...
