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

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 ...
