I have a question about ADS smilation, can someone help me? - 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.

When I do Transient simulate using the ADS, it always said that the iternal timestep *** to small at time ***, and I can't find the answer from the help files of the ADS,can someone help me to solve this problem? Thanks a lot

If I'm not mistaken, ADS' transient simulation uses adaptive time steps - if a change of any variable is too big from one instant to another, or if a circuit fails to converge (that is, the voltages and currents can't be made to be consistent), then it shrinks the time step and tries again.
Circuits with high Q can cause problems with transient simulations - if you accidentally have a high-Q resonance, that could be your problem. On the other hand, if you intentionally have a high-Q resonance, then you'd best be prepared to do a lot of work!

Thanks for your reply.
In my circuit I use a delay unit to delay the signal, is it the problem?
If the Q value is too high, can I reduce it? Or other methods, can you tell me how I to do?
