I have done a pss simulation where I can check the 2.4GHz power at a port. However, I would like to make some kind of expression that will display the value of power at 2.4Ghz at ADE's Output value column.

this is the pss result that I have. The value that I would like to see si the one at 2.4Ghz(around -16dbm)

I would like the value (-16dbm) on this ADE window.


I tried to make some expressions on my own. the below is a description of my attempts:

first just made an expression 'test1' that is an exact copy of the pss result of a port.
==> test1=dbm(pvr('pss "/vout" "/gnd!" 50.0))

then I created 'test2' expression which is intended to capture the value of power of 2.4GHz.
I tried:

yval(test1@2.4G)
yval(test1 2.4G)

unfortunately none worked.

one thing that might be noteworthy is that in the virtuoso calculator guides that I found on the internet seemed to state the existence and usage of 'yval' function.
However when I checked the calculator function panel, there was no 'yval'. (xval did exist though). I wonder if my attempts of using 'yval' was totally off the target because of this.

I was trying to use 'yval' function but it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions on how I could make this happen?

Hi,

For strongest harmonic you always could use ymax function, for other I suppose you could use "value" function.

In HB analysis you could use "harmonic" function and directly write which harmonic you want to print, maybe this function works also for PSS.
