I am trying to simulate an oscillator with PSS.
What EDA Tool do you use ?
There are many simulators which have an analysis called as "PSS".DoYouLinux wrote on Nov 20th, 2009, 2:01am:
In this oscillator, two transmission lines are used to implement the tank.
The model of the transmission line was extracted from HFSS as RLGC model.
Is it truely "RLGC
" model ?DoYouLinux wrote on Nov 20th, 2009, 2:01am:
When I simulated, PSS failed, and it mentioned that it cannot support directly to distributed components.
It also suggested me to use Harmonic balance method.
As I see from PSS, I have "Shooting" and "Flexible balance",
So, is it correct that I should choose "Flexible balance" ?? :-?
If you mean PSS of Cadence Spectre, "Flexible balance" is "Harmonic balance".
I think Cadence did not like to use word of "Harmonic balance" obstinately due to historical reason.
Currently Cadence call it "Harmonic balance".DoYouLinux wrote on Nov 20th, 2009, 2:01am:
I tried to use it, PSS failed again. http://www.designers-guide.org/Forum/YaBB.pl?num=1228240587http://www.designers-guide.org/Forum/YaBB.pl?num=1205223090http://www.designers-guide.org/Forum/YaBB.pl?num=1237187544
Perhaps I do not know how to set the paramters in Flexible balance correctly.
If anyone used Flexible balance mode in PSS before,
please suggest me how to simulate my oscillator in this mode.
