load pull with ADS - 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.

Hello friends,

I have some problems regarding load pull simulation using ADS design guide.
I am using LDMOS with spice model .
Unfortunately i received error message (converges problem) for large input signal.
For small signal it runs OK.
Maybe the S11_rho and S11_center is not defined well ?
I am not sure I understand how to defined the sweep value for S11

Thanks

Hi there,

The converge problem commonly happens during large-signal simulation. What most likely to happen is the large-signal model parameters have limitations on high-power sweep, e.g such as breakdown voltage and so on.

The fast way to check is, you may lower the output power sweep, step by step, let's say by 1dBm and see whether the simulations sweep ok. Or, you may want to try to reduce the sweep power step to smaller steps.

I believe it's nothing wrong with your simulations, the problem lies in the model. So probably you may want to try to modify the model large-signal parameters.

I hope it helps.

Best Regards,
Jean
