Hello All/Cadence Support, I am having the problem
figuring out how to run IM3 and IP3 simulation if the input file is a pwl file. I
am easily able to run all other analysis of PSS except the IP3. I have
tried PSS+PAC, QPSS which are usual for calculating IP3 but it dont
work. For example,with the PSS+PAC analysis the PAC>IPN Curves has
the message ''The data for each sideband of the pac analysis contains
are frequency sweep.As a result,the above selected function cannot be
executed'.I need urgent help in this regard!
If you are computing IP3 using PSS+PAC, you should just do a "single point" PAC analysis. You might sweep the input power in the PSS analysis, and then just have a single point PAC analysis.
There's a useful tutorial on doing this kind of thing in <MMSIMinstDir>/tools/spectre/examples/SpectreRF_workshop/rfworkshop.tar.Z
The compressed tar file contains pdfs and a database with examples of performing analyses for oscillators, LNAs, mixers and PAs.
