Mohammadi  1  ECE 654: Solid State Devices II Chapter I Power Gains, and Stability Analysis of Microwave Transistors Introduction We start our discussion by introducing Smith Chart which is the plot of reflection coefficient in the complex plain. Then we will discuss the importance of interconnects and the parasitics they introduce on the performance of a microwave transistor. Finally we will discuss various gain definitions as well as the concept of stability, device cut off frequency and maximum oscillation frequency.

For an impedance Smith chart, the bottom half of the circle represents capacitive impedances while the top half is associated with inductive impedances. Positive real values of impedance (positive resistances) reside inside the unity circle while negative resistances go outside of the circle. It is also possible to draw Smith chart for admittances. In this case the locations of open and short and capacitive and inductive areas are reversed. ECE 654 Solid State Devices II Prof. S.
