Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Vacuum Electron Devices with A.S. Gilmour, Jr.

Gilmour Brochure Written by an internationally recognized as an expert on the subject of microwave (MW) tubes, this book presents and describes the many types of microwave tubes, and despite competition from solid-state devices (those using GaN, SiC, et cetera), which continue to be used widely and find new applications in defense, communications, medical, and …

Set the Appropriate Measuring Range for Consistent Model Parameter Extraction with Gunter Kompa

Measuring the scattering parameters of a microwave transistor to develop an appropriate small-signal device model, the question may come up about the minimum frequency range needed to extract reliable  model parameter values. This issue has been studied intensively for microwave devices based on GaN technology and discussed in detail in my book Parameter Extraction and …

Getting Broad and Thorough Understanding in the Field of Device Modeling and Model Parameter Extraction with Gunter Kompa

My published book titled Parameter Extraction and Complex Nonlinear Transistor Models concerns with the following three key topics: Small-signal model parameter extraction Large-signal device modeling Large-signal measurement techniques In my first post, dated December 17, 2019, I explained the limitation of using the standard 15-element FET model for modern high power multifinger GaN devices. Similar …
