Abstract

A new technique is developed for determining analytically a millimeter-wave small-signal equivalent-circuit model of GaAs pseudomorphic HEMTs from scattering parameter measurements. In order to obtain a good agreement between model simulations and measurements up to 90 GHz, the conventional intrinsic output conductance is substituted by a voltage-controlled current source with a time delay. Consequently, a simple and accurate extraction procedure is proposed for taking into account the introduction of the output conductance time delay.
