In addition to displaying the results of simulations in graphical form, you can also export simulation results to output files with the following formats:
Touchstone format (S-, Y-, or Z-parameters) for circuit and EM simulations, using the NPORTF measurement. (When writing Y- and Z-parameters using output files, the y-matrix is multiplied by the reference impedance and the z-matrix is divided by the reference impedance.) If sweeps are being performed the format can also be MDIF format. See “Generate Touchstone, MDIF, or MATLAB File: NPORTF” for details.
AM to AM, AM to PM, or AM to AM/PM files for nonlinear circuit simulations, using the AMtoAMPMF measurement. See “Generate AM to AM/PM at Fundamental: AMtoAMPMF” for details.
Spectrum data files for nonlinear circuit simulations, using the PharmF measurement. See “Generate Spectrum File: PharmF” for details.
MATLAB "MAT" data files, using the MATLAB measurement. See “Write Measurement Data to MATLAB File: MATLAB” for details.
Radiation pattern data files, using the AntPat_EF or AntPat_TPwrF measurements. See “Write Total Power Radiation Pattern to File: AntPat_TPwrF” and “Write E-Field Radiation Pattern to File: AntPat_EF” for details.
NETDMP can generate a non-simulation based netlist of the circuit. See “Generate Netlist: NETDMP” for details.
SpiceF can generate an RLC approximation of a passive circuit. See “Generate Spice Netlist Equivalent: SpiceF” for details.
NOTE: You must simulate the project after adding an output file to generate the file, regardless of whether previous simulations were run or not.
If the file format can also be used in the AWR Design Environment platform for other purposes, there is an option to import the file after simulation. Each subsequent simulation overwrites the data file in the project. To keep a permanent copy, rename the data file.
To create an output file to store the results of a simulation:
Choose Output Files node in the Project Browser and choose . The Add Output File dialog box displays. See “Add/Modify Output File Dialog Box” for more information about this dialog box.or right-click the
Choose the measurement that corresponds to the type of data file you want to create. Click thebutton for details on each measurement.
Specify the Data Source Name, the File Name, and the required options, and then click .
