Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
Hi,
1.I have tried to sweep the length of TLINE keeping frequency constant for the open circuit case and short circuit case but I don't really see the expected reactive behavior.
2.I have tried to sweep the Frequency of TLINE keeping length constant for the open circuit case and short circuit case but I don't really see the expected resonance behavior.

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
I agree that the relation between electrical length and input impedance are presented correctly in the diagrams. You should be able to see in in a correct simulation setup. Unfortunately you neither show your simulation setup nor the results, which answers do you expect?

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
In the short circuit case, as I increase the length when 0<length<lambda/4, I expected to see inductive behavior and lambda/4<length<lambda/2, I expected to see capacitive behavior. And the same behavior should repeat again beyond lambda/2
In the open circuit case, as I increase the length when 0<length<lambda/4, I expected to see capacitive behavior and lambda/4<length<lambda/2, I expected to see inductive behavior.
I attached my test setup and results

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
You are sweeping "freq" variable ?? If it's so, you're doing a mistake because freq is not a variable for Cadence Spectre..
Instead, you should fix the frequency in sparameters simulation in Spectre ( single point) then change the Line Length.
Also, look at Zm ( Port Input Impedance ) instead of sparameters.

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
Exactly I did the same but you gave me one idea, I was not sweeping the frequency parameter in the TLINE. Should I need to do that to get its response against frequency or is sweeping the frequency in sparameter simulation enough?
What exactly happens when we do sparameter simulation, does it over write all other frequency variables in the schematic (in this case frequency parameter in TLINE component)?

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
I use Synopsys HSPICE from Cadence ADE.
You may use ".LIN Analysis" instead of ".AC Analysis".

Any simulator can give same results.
Of course, LTspice have "tline".Last edited by pancho_hideboo; 17th June 2019 at 13:59.

Re: Response of the TLINE for different frequencies and lengths
Nothing.
What do you want to mean ?
"basic/NoConn" is a symbol, that's all.
Compare Views of "analogLib/res" and "basic/NoConn".
And confirm cell property "nlAction" of "basic/NoConn".
Then consider and learn by yourself.
