Export RF Objects

Export Components and Networks

You can export RF components and networks that you create and refine it in the RF Design and Analysis app to your MATLAB® workspace or to files. You export circuits for the following reasons:

  • To perform additional analysis using RF Toolbox™ functions that are not available in the app.

  • To incorporate them into larger RF systems.

  • To import them into another session.

Export to the Workspace

The RF Design and Analysis app enables you to export components and networks to the MATLAB workspace. In your workspace, you can use the resulting circuit (rfckt) object as you would any other RF circuit object.

To export a component or network to the workspace:

  1. Select the component or network to export in the RF Component List pane of the app.

  2. Select Export to Workspace from the File menu.

  3. Enter a name for the exported object's handle in the Variable name field and click OK. The default name is the name of the component or network prefaced with the string 'rft_'.

    The component or network becomes accessible in the workspace via the specified object handle.

Export to a File

The RF Design and Analysis app lets you export components and networks to files in S2P format.

    Note:   You must analyze a component or network in the RF Design and Analysis app before you can export it to a file. See Analyze Circuits for more information.

To export a component or network to a file:

  1. Select the component or network to export in the RF Component List pane of the app.

  2. Select Export To File from the File menu to open the file browser.

  3. Browse to the appropriate directory. Enter the name you want to give the file and click Save.

    The default file name is the current name of the component or network prefaced with the string 'rft_'. The app also converts any characters that are not alphanumeric to underscores (_).
