Scattering parameters or S-parameters describe the electrical behavior of linear electrical networks when undergoing various steady state stimuli by electrical signals. S-parameters are analytically convenient; they allow for calculations of system performance by cascading the individual components.

In this video, we used SIWave to calculate S and SYZ parameters. Different methods are shown to generate probes on the PCB and measure SYZ parameter. We also illustrated how to run an initial validation on the PCB, how to identify nets, and how to export results in Ansys Electronic Desktop (AEDT).
