i have downloaded the .zap file of ATF36163 from avago website.but when i start the DC simulation with ADS2008,it said that :


Simulation / Synthesis Messages

Warning detected by hpeesofsim during DC analysis `DC1'.
Matrix is singular (detected at node or branch `X1.L56.i').

Warning detected by hpeesofsim during DC analysis `DC1'.
Circuit converged after a virtual resistance of 1 TOhms
was added between each node and ground, and a virtual
resistance of 1 pOhms was inserted in each current branch.
Possible causes include floating nodes or missing ground.

CT Sweep1[1] <D:\users\default\atf36163_prj\networks\1> VGS=(-1->0)

DC Sweep1[1].DC1[1/21] <D:\users\default\atf36163_prj\networks\1> VGS=-1 VDS=(0->5)

i have no idea about this.someone give me some help!!!~
here is the ATF36163 .zap file&my simulation prj.

No test setup is shared.
The attachment is only model.

Added after 4 hours 1 minutes:

Its nothing wrong as it is warning only.
The reasons are,
Simulatior is computing for DC then the reactance for L is zero, simulator does not act on zero ohm and hence replaced with peco ohm.
Similarly for Cap the reactance is infinity, which is replaced with tera ohm.

If you do AC analysis then these warning will not appear

here is the DC_simulation &AC_simulation with ADS.
the warning is still the same!!~
