Small-Signal Analysis


I found that Lumerical DEVICE is currently improved to include the small-signal simulation with ssac solver mode. However, I can not find this solver mode and related settings such as Small Signal AC tab in CHARGE region with my version 5.0.736 . Does this mean that I need to update my version to the latest one to fully exploit this function?


Hi @mingjay,

That is correct, the Small Signal AC Analysis was added in the 2016b release (DEVICE 5.1 and above). To be able to use this feature, you need to upgrade your version.
You can download the latest version from the download center.


Thank you for your input. Let me update my version.
