February 14, 2021 at 12:36 amaw5SubscriberHello,nI am attempting to construct a parallel plate transmission line with microstrip using the ANSYS circuit designer, but I am unsure how to go about doing so because there does not seem to be a component defined for it. Can anyone give me advice on how to go about doing this?nI have tried modeling it using a stackup that has a ground layer in the center and two dielectric layers of half my board with sandwiching it, but I can't find a way to assign the components in the schematic view to specific stackup layers for simulation. If this approach would work please let me know what I am missing, or if anyone knows a better way to do it I would love to hear about that.n

February 17, 2021 at 8:06 amaw5SubscriberHello,nIf by 3D layout you mean an HFSS 3D Layout Design, I am not using that. I am using circuit schematic editor that comes up when going to the Insert menu and selecting Insert Circuit Design, which seems to be using Nexxim Circuit Elements. I have been designing my board and running my simulations through the schematic view of the circuit, as though there is a layout view I have tried moving parts around in it before and it does not seem to change the simulation results when I return to the schematic view. There is a stackup defined for the circuit, but it doesn't seem to actually be used by the simulation since each microstrip transmission line I make needs me to define the substrate it is on. My current problem is that I am trying to design a balanced microstrip tranmission line that runs along the top and the bottom of the board so that there is a virtual ground in the center of the board, but I am unsure how to design it in the circuit tool as there does not seem to be a way to indicate where stackup layers the transmission line components are on as far as the schematic simulation is concerned. Hopefully there is a component that can handle this for me or I am just overlooking something.nnSorry if any of this is unclear, please let me know if any more clarification is needed. Thank you!n
