Abstract

We studied the impact of measurement uncertainties in a HBT model and their consequences on the electrical performance under large signal conditions at 9 GHz. Then we use the model with uncertainties to verify the ability of our model to accurately predict the electrical performance of power amplifier designs at 220 GHz. We compared the measured performance of the power amplifiers with our simulations and estimated range of performance
