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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

How do I do this in ADS? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hello all,

I'm trying to figure out the optimum gamma_S and gamma_L for a transistor. I saw an example using HP MDS. The example consisted of one BJT with the port 1 (base) and port 2 (collector) terminated with a variable termination block that had variable resistance and reactance parameters (p. 443 on Gonzalez's Micowave Transistor Amplifiers book).

How can I replicate this on ADS? ADS has a termination block for the S-param simulation, but I don't know how to set it so I can set the source and load impedance into variables.

The idea is that when the simulator is given specific goals it would return the value for source and load impedances that meet those goals. I can do this easily by coming up with an arbitrary input and output matching network. However, I don't know how to get ADS, just to give me the optimum values, so I can come up with my own matching network configuration.

Thanks!

I just got an email from Agilent. It is a fairly simple solution. The termination block under the S-param palette has internal variables. If you actually double click on it after placing it on the design space, then you'll see "Equation Editor" in the pop-up window. By clicking on "Equation Editor" you will see the list of variables associated with the termination block: source_real, source_imag, etc..
