Prove yourself as an engineer! The Schematic Challenge is the perfect opportunity to test your skills. On March 5, 6, and 7, we will be posting a new schematic or problem-solving challenge. If you, as a community, are able to answer questions 1, 2, and 3 correctly by Thursday, March 8 at 11:59 PM MST, we will add three 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes… Show more
I'm trying to get the current average count on a N9010A spectrum analyzer. My aim is to poll over ethernet once a second and then when the average is complete - i.e. 100 averages then save the data. I just cannot find the command to read what the current average number is (K).
I am attempting to add a Ferrite material to my EMPro simulation. I have data from the Ferrite manufacturer of the material properties in complex permittivity and complex permeability vs frequency. I would like to add the data via the Python API and I haven't found a class which would allow me to add multiple complex permittivity and permeability… Show more
In ADS, what is the easiest way to save a dataset for easy viewing in a data window later? Ex: Run harmonic balance in a schematic and view the data via a graph in the data display. Change a parameter and rerun the simulation. View the new data on the same graph in the same window while keeping the entire previous dataset saved (not necessarily… Show more
A thin film ceramic module has 3 layers of metal, Au over Ni over Cr, all microns thick. How do I build a microstrip substrate 3 layer metal scheme to analyze skin depth at 10 GHz?
Using ADS 2016, how do I build a tri-metal microstrip ceramic substrate for EM modeling of skin depth with these three dis-similar conductivity mayterials?
Hi, I have a E8364A PNA. I think it can be used as Electrical Spectrum Analyzer, but I have no idea how setup it. I want to use it as ESA because I need to measure the electrical spectrum at 50GHz and the highest frequency of my MXA is 26GHz. Could anybody help me? Thank you Best regards, Luis
Hi, I have a new to me E4432B I bought knowing there were some issues. It has options UN7, UN8, and UND. When I try to run an I/Q cal it gives error 517 Calibration failure. Looking at the error doc it mentions the attempt to allocate memory for calibration failed. I tried full and user, user in varying frequency chunk sizes, all give the same… Show more
Hello, Agilent 34970A data logger is for 3*20 = 60 channels. But i am unable to use more than 33 channels at a single time. If i am doing like that, it is giving an error. System we used was windows 10. If any other inputs needed i will provide. Thanks in advance.
