A really simple question. I am new to ADS and trying to simulate a half rectifier as the attached pics show.
Why is the diode also on when it is reversely biased?
If I put a capacitor parallel to the load, everything works well.
I am designing a CRLH unit cell with an interdigital capacitor and short circuited stub (with via to ground) in ADS momentum. I want to use this single unit cell as a matching part for my rectifier circuit ( as of now i am using a diode for simplification). Can someone help me in suggesting a way to find the impedance of the unit cell using ADS, so that i can obtain a match with diode impedance. The diode impedance has been already calculated using a term component and then plotting S11 on smith chart.
I would also like to know how can i change the impedance by varying the length, width if interdigital fingers or short circuited stub.
