I was trying to simulate
a down converter using ansoft designer. apparently there is no mixer
block in designer. can someone pl guide me on how to create the
netlist for the mixer or, is there a mixer library that i can use?

did u try including all the
libs. if not in the tools menu configure libs .. add all the libraries.
are you using the complete version or the student version?

I am assuming you are looking at the student version.
If that is the case, note from the readme file:
o Only linear
circuit simulation is supported in Ansoft Designer SV.
simulate non-linear devices. You can, however, insert
devices into your circuits and transfer these circuits
professional version of Ansoft Designer.
If you can locate
an older student version of Ansoft Serenade v8.5, you can simulate
non-linear effects with some limitations. I still use Serenade v8.5
as I don't like Designer much and the limitations are more severe.

1. i was trying to use the circuit
simulation package in ansoft designer. now i am using the system
simulation part and i was able to locate the mixer. i am now trying
to run temperature sweeps on my circuit. when i use the inbuilt
temp sweep in ansoft, nothing seems to happen to the S parameters.
I plugged in a couple of manufacturer datasets for different temperatures
and got totally different results, compared to the temp sweep in
ansoft. does anyone have an explanation??
2. I was wondering
about how to determine the S-parameters of the mixer. I wanted to
use custom defined S parameters for the mixer in my simulation.
How do i determine S12, S21, S31, S32 & S23/32??
Ansoft Designer, how do I import a touchstone file for a bandpass
filter? I was able to import the s2p file for the amplifier, but
the BPF properties dialog doesnt seem to have an option to import
an s2p file..
