1. ### Effect of metal resistivity on the characteristic impedance of microstrip line

Hi We know that the characteristic impedance of a microstrip line is given as follows: In general the metal resistivity is so small that Z0 can be taken as sqrt(L/C). But if the metal resisitivity is not that small? Then according to the equation, this resistivity should affect the Z0. Is it...
2. ### How to enter complex conductivity vs. frequency into CST

Hi, Following the discussion here: https://www.edaboard.com/threads/223918/ I obtained complex conductivity vs. frequency data of graphene material. I'm using CST and I don't know how to enter complex conductivity values in CST. I searched a lot for several days and what I concluded that I can...

Hi, I just designed a simple microstrip transmission line and modelled it in CST. I attached the CST project. According to the microstrip design, epsilon of the substrate is 4.6, substrate thickness is 1.6mm, and line width is 3mm. I verified these calculations in 2 different plugins. The...
4. ### Forming SAR radar image from measured data-urgent

Hi all, I built the cantenna radar system of MIT (http://www.glcharvat.com/Dr._Gregory_L._Charvat_Projects/Cantenna_Radar.html). I also designed a simple data acquisition circuit to transfer the measured waveform to MATLAB environment. Finally, I could acquire SAR data by putting a metal bin in...
5. ### An applied RF system

Hi all, Please look at the attached block diagram first. I'm generating a sinusoidal RF wave using ZX95-2536C-S+ with a ramp function applied to tuning input. Hence a sinusoidal wave having a sweeping frequency is supposed to be generated. Then I split the generated wave using ZX10-2-42-S+...
6. ### Wireless USB data transfer

Hi, I have a simple project where I read a sensor and send the data to the PC via USB using 18F2550. However, I'm planning to transfer the USB data wirelessly. Ideally I'll connect the "USB data transmitter module" to USB output of 18F2550 and then connect the "USB data receiver module" to my...
7. ### 18F2550 programming error

Hi, I'm using a PIC programmer that I bought on ebay. It was advertised as K150 programmer but I realized that it's a clone. Listed as here: **broken link removed** Anyway, I'm using PICPRO software and I can successfully program 12F675 and 16F84A. However, when I try to program or erase...
8. ### flash data corruption

Hi, I am working on an embedded hardware which has a pxa255 processor with AMD's AM29LV256M flash chip. The system acquires analog input, passes thru the ADC, after processing, stores the data in flash memory. However, sometimes the data is corrupted when writing to the memory. I checked the...
9. ### Check my LED blinking program for PIC16F6888 MCU in Isis

Hi, I am trying to simulate a PIC16F6888 MCU in Isis and it behaves strange. Just a LED blinking program but LEDs do not blink. MikroC and Isis files are attached. I need help please. Regards, carbon

Hello, I'm trying to implement a voltage controlled capacitor in Verilog-A. I tried to use the following script: include "disciplines.vams" include "constants.vams" module capacitor(p,n); inout p,n; electrical p,n; analog begin if(V(p,n)>=0 && V(p,n)<2.5) I(p,n) <+...
11. ### Verilog-A simple capacitor

Hello, I'm trying to simulate a simple capacitor module written in Verilog-A as follows: include "disciplines.vams" include "constants.vams" module capacitor_model(p,n); real q=1.609E-19; real L=300E-9; inout p,n; electrical p,n; analog begin I(p,n) <+ (2E9*q*L) * ddt(V(p,n)); //...
12. ### capacitance from a look up table

Hi all, I need to implement a voltage dependent capacitance from a look up table in SPICE. I searched a lot but could not find any way. Could you please give an idea? Regards, carbon9
13. ### Negative capacitance and delay

negative capacitance Hi all, There are some devices such as tunnel diodes or some new generation nano devices that seems to have negative parasitic capacitances. When it comes to the calculation of the delay of these negative capacitance devices, I'm a lot confused. For example, if we consider...
14. ### Calculating the electrical flux generated by a wire intecon

Dear all, How can I calculate the electrical flux generated by a silicon interconnect wire provided that I know the 3-D charge distribution (rho(r)) in a 3-D wire interconnect as shown below? I'll use flux to calculate the parasitc inductance L=d(flux)/d(I)) Regards,
15. ### Capacitance of a silicon line (wire)

Dear all, I'm to calculate the (static or dynamic) capacitance of a silicon wire shown in the Figure below. When a bias is applied to the metal electrodes, a current passes through the silicon wire. And by using Suprem, I can calculate the 3-D charge density inside the silicon wire, say rho(r)...
