Charles,

"Modes to nodes" thing won't give you a SPICE model from the way I
understood that concept from the Ansoft people and from my own past
research. I understood it to be a technique of coupling (interfacing) the
traditional SPICE-based electrical circuit (nodal) simulation with 3D EM
field (modal) simulation. In this technique the models of the interconnects
are implicitly generated and utilised. The generated interconnect models
would mean nothing to external SPICE-based simulators. Ansoft people may
correct me if I'm wrong.

And BTW, is Ansoft HFSS 8 already available?

Regards.

Hassan.

Hello,

Ansofts HFSS version 8 translates modes to nodes , in other words you can
get
a fully coulped SPICE model of the device of interest to a very high
bandwidth.

Thank you.
