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!

Good Luck!

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?

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 ...
