Multiport Processor Workflow

The basic workflow using the multiport processor is described.

Figure 1. Basic workflow for the multiport processor calculator.

  1. Generate a multiport data package using an S-parameter configuration. A template .mcc file is generated with creating a multiport data package .mdp file.
  2. Set up the multiport combinations configuration file using a text editor1.
  3. Launch a calculation using the command line arguments2.
    Note: The .mcr file is a HDF5 file.
  4. Process the results using other Altair tools, for example, Altair Compose to read the results from the .mcr file.
