Why do the Murata capacitors and inductors not simulate correctly in HspiceHSPICE?



The solution described below only applies to AWRDE Version 14 and older. As of AWRDE Version 15, HSPICE is no longer a feature.

The Murata capacitors and inductors use frequency dependent resistors and inductors in the modeltheir models. This frequency dependency dependence is difficult to account for in Hspice and currently the simulator only HSPICE,  which currently uses a single frequency when generating the Hspice netlistHSPICE netlist.

The solution is to first use the Murata parts in AWR to generate an output s-parameter file. Then import the s-parameter file back into AWR and use that in any schematic that is being used for Hspice simulationHSPICE simulation. The software will accurately take the s-parameters into HspiceHSPICE.
