I am experimenting with SPICE microstrip dipole antenna models. The series RLC lumped element model is assumed. For a half-wavelength microstrip dipole antenna, the inductance value of the two microstrip segments is computed using values for trace width, thickness, substrate thickness and effective dielectric constant. The capacitor value is obtained by using resonant frequency


LT Spice, ringing LC

This is fun. The LC should ring at 1 Hz, but in the default Spice sim, it's low by about 1800 PPM. You have to crank the time step down to 10 us to get the error down below 10 PPM, and the sim gets really slow. Which illustrates the futility of trying to do accurate sims of high-Q circuits in the time domain. Version 4 SHEET 1 880 680 WIRE 224 -192 64 -192 WIRE 416 -192 224 -192 ...

Could some electronics guru here please clarify this a bit ? I am experimenting with SPICE transient analysis of oscillator, and I am unsure as to what to set as the ideal sampling time, given that most oscillators will generate a fundamental and a few harmonics. For example, suppose that I have a 500 MHz differential oscillator, and I set the sampling time as 1/(15.0*time period of fund...

I haven't found a SPICE that allows for Log sweeping. To make wide-range BJT beta-vs-IC and Gummel plots, I did the following: 1. DC sweep with equal voltage steps, e.g. 0 to 20 volts, 0.2-volt steps. 2. Linear EXP function subcircuit. 3. Voltage-controlled current source, with severe attenuation, 1E-10 * At this point we have a super-wide-range log sweep of base current. 4. Smal...
