I am complitely new to board design and relatively new to ADS software, so my questions might be really basic.
I need to design a board using Analog's ADL5545 gain block.
I have seen that there are only .s2p files and .brd files of this components. How could I possibly use this to files to make the simulation as realistic as possible?
To use the .s2p i saw there are 2 (or more) possibilities, the de-embed and the standard block (found under Data Items): which one should I pick?
Thanks in advance.
For circuit simulation, use the standard block and the .s2p file.
The brd file can be imported into momentum and used for board simulation.
I would suggest you contact your ADS tech support representative for guidance on how to do this.
