When to Use S-parameters for High-frequency Circuit Simulations

When to Use S-parameters for High-frequency Circuit Simulations

By Coilcraft



S-parameters can accelerate the simulation process by placing a single “black box” element into a schematic and pointing to a file. This avoids having to create complicated lumped-element (SPICE) model schematics that only approximate distributed characteristics.

While easier to set up in simulation, users should understand the challenges and limitations of using S-parameters before analyzing simulation results. This paper discusses the basics of S-parameters and when they are appropriate for circuit simulation.
