  • Re: What is the use of No of harmonics option in PSS form

    Hi yxue, In harmonic balance, the number of harmonics chosen does affect accuracy. There is a blog and a solution on this: Here is the Blog: Guidelines for Maximizing Speed vs Accuracy for Harmonic Balance - Part 2. http://www.cadence.com/Community/blogs/rf/archive/2011/11/01/guidelines-for-maximizing...

  • Modeling Oscillators with Arbitrary Phase Noise Profiles

    When you need to include noisy oscillators in SpectreRF transceiver simulations, you have at least 3 options: 1) Semi-autonomous simulation is the most accurate approach, recommended whenever the transistor-level model of the oscillator is available. 2) rfLib/osc model is less accurate but it’s...

  • Measuring 2-Tone Intermodulation Using Envelope-Following Analysis

    From time to time, SpectreRF users simulate very large, extracted-view circuits in 2+ tone QPSS. In many of those cases, memory requirements exceed the available resources. When that happens and small-signal approximations aren’t applicable, the user is typically stuck. The solution below and attached...

  • Nport Application Note has been Updated and Re-Released

    Happy New Year! After many requests, I set aside some time and updated the Using the nport in Spectre and SpectreRF Simulations appNote for MMSIM 11.1. You may download the appNote on Cadence Online Support . More nport enhancements are planned, so stay tuned! If you have any comments or questions, please...

  • Tips for Simulating a Transmit Mixer in SpectreRF

    Some typical questions that I receive from newer SpectreRF users are: How do I simulate a transmit mixer? How do I look at both upper and lower sidebands? How do I set up my simulation for PAC and Pnoise? When I plot my data, how do the indexes correspond with the sidebands? Hopefully the following will...

  • New Time-Saving Feature in IC6.1.4 ISR2: Plot S-Parameter Data Directly From ViVA!

    If you haven't heard about it....there is a new feature in IC6.1.4 ISR2 which makes troubleshooting circuits containing nports ( s-parameters ) much easier and faster! Starting i n IC6.1.4 ISR2, you can now plot s-parameters directly in ViVA (without having to create a test bench and run a Spectre...

  • NPORT S-Parameter Model Enhancements

    In MMSIM 7.2, two new parameters have been added to the Spectre nport primitive: datatrunc and causality . In MMSIM 7.1, passivity checking was added. The nport now has causality correction, passivity checking and enforcement, and the ability to remove small couplings terms from the input s-parameter...
