Abstract

This paper describes the investigation of two different approaches to model microwave active devices using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) analysis. Norton-equivalent and Thevenin-equivalent approaches are used in the extended FDTD method to model the interaction between the three-terminal active device and the electromagnetic field by placing equivalent sources in the active region. A typical microwave amplifier is analyzed, and the simulation results agree well with expectation.
