please, could you try to import the provided spice file in ADS and tell me if it works well?

I tried but the simulator told me some elements have been skipped.I don't understand.

Thanks in advance

import spice model to ads

Dear jayce 3390,

I tried your file in ADS2008 and it works for that you can see toy schematic cicruit in attached file.

As you know, it gives the schematic but i do not konw if it will works perfectly because i encountred a problem with NE351402_Spice, when i converted it in schematic cicruit then i tried to used it unfortunately it seems not work and i did not understand why......

good luck

N

spice modelling ads

thank you nassim1, I think you got some Warnings during the translation, could you check eventually? because it seemed that the spice file contains switches and ADS is unable to understand.
