Abstract

We describe the large-signal characterization of mm-wave FET power amplifiers with high-Q matching network performed through full band Monte Carlo particle-based device simulations self-consistently coupled with a Harmonic Balance frequency domain circuit solver. Such circuit-device simulations allow to include the effect of the matching network as well as parasitic elements in the large-signal characterization of mm-wave FETs.
