Import Touchstone® Files into ADS with a Dual-in-line Symbol

Posted June 4th, 2014 · 2 Comments · Video


In ADS, the default SnP symbols (for example the ones on the Data Items pallette) are aimed at RF/microwave applications. For signal integrity and power integrity applications, I like to use dual-in-line symbols (with odd-numbered pins on the left side and a even on the right) instead. This short video clip titled Import Touchstone® Files into ADS with a Dual-in-line Symbol shows you how I do it. It works with any port count large or small (I used an *.S256P in this video) and it also supports two styles of “comment field port names” that have become fairly common. Please leave a comment on this method. Thanks!
