    AWR non linear simulation of a SAW resonator problem

    Hi,
    Im pretty much new to AWR Design Environment, and i'm having the following problem:
    I'm trying to run a resonator non linear simulation based upon a known schematic (RO3164D 868.35 MHz SAW resonator). The model for the transistor is BFS520.
    During the analysis of the schematic, I receive the following message:
    "Failed to find start up conditions in the specified frequency range"
    Here is an image of the schematic:

    what is the problem and how can I fix it?
    does this error means that I need to enter start up conditions to the capacitors and inductors? If so then how?

    Re: AWR non linear simulation of a SAW resonator problem

    Hello,

    Is it Crystal Resonator Ocillator ! if so did you setup exact crystal parameters...
    then finally did you use the nonlinear spice model for BFS520 in MWO schenatic...

    Also increase the oscillation frequency range on OSCPROBE just to indentify the resosnace frequency...

    Re: AWR non linear simulation of a SAW resonator problem

    It has a SAW resonator so it is a crystal oscillator.
    I've inputed parameters as given in the datasheet.
    I've manualy set transistor parameters.
    Increasing freq. range doesn't help, i've started from a wider range and dropped it to current range trying to figure out what's the problem.

    Any suggestions?
