The specification, realization and test of digital communication system components, presupposes an intimate knowledge of the impact of system demands on component requirements. This non-trivial task can be significantly simplified when simulation and measurement can be combined in a unified software package. An implementation strategy has been developed for introducing microwave instruments as models into Hewlett-Packard EEsof¿s Advanced Design System. One can configure a measurement system by dragging and dropping components on a design template. Using this implementation, measurements can be driven directly from ADS. In this paper we discuss the flexibility of this implementation with respect to Load-Pull measurements using a Maury Automatic Tuner System. This approach ensures flexibility in design and implementation of measurement systems and easy verification of simulations with measurements.
