sweep plan ads

Who knows how to import Maury *.spl (sweep plan) files in ADS ? I have *.spl files and do not know how to import them. They are used for LoadPull and impedance matching. Thanks.

Please have a look at the sweep plan file. I had to rename the *.spl to *.doc otherwise I could not upload the file.

you can use DAC to read the file.
and user sweep plan to sweep between the loads.

what you want to do wuth the data in ADS? to build a circuit or to see it on graph?

DAC stand for : Data Access Component and it is use to read data from files or simulation results

if I well remember there is an example in the examples directory that explain the use of DAC.
This instrument is OK for your needs, but is not so simple to use as it is a general instrument to import data into simulation environment.
I hope it can help.

I already looked at examples but I do not see how to connect *.spl data to DAC and what to select...

Hi,

Well DAC it is not easy to use.
I think that easy way will be to use the load pull importer.
you can find it under DesignGuides-> Load pull importer.

This application support Maury file format but not sweep plan as you upload, Maybe you can change your file to this format ? it will save you lot of time.
