HIGH POWER or low noise performanee of a GaAs FET is a critical function of the impedances presented at the device terminals. At present, the design of circuits for broadband microwave power and low-noise amplifiers relies heavily on the empirical cut-try, computer-aided optimization and insertion loss synthesis techniques. The first two design methods can be very frustrating and result in sub-optimal circuits. The insertion loss synthesis method has very little control over the impedances presented at the de…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
