University of California, Berkeley Fall 2011 EECS 142 Prof. A. Niknejad Problem Set 5 Due Thursday October 6, 2011 1. For this problem use the full packaged model of the BFG40Wp transistor (see lab #2). You may use ADS, SpectreRF (or do the calculations by hand!). (a) Bias the device at a DC level corresponding to the peak f T . (b) Find the f max for the device. Compare it to f T . (c) Plot the stability factor and maximum gain from DC to the f max of the device. In what frequency range is the device only conditionally stable? (d) Add loss to the device in order to make it unconditionally stable over all frequencies. ( Hint : A series resistor in the collector is a good choice.) (e) Design a matching network at the input and output of the amplifier to obtain the maximum stable gain (MSG) at 1 GHz. Plot the MSG and the actual transducer power gain | S 21 | 2 obtained from your amplifier. (f) ( 242M ) Repeat the matching network design but now assume the component Q is 10 for the inductors. What is the loss of the matching network itself?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
