A microwave active circuit including a three terminal active device is analyzed using the extended Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) algorithm with an equivalent current source approach. It is essential that the equivalent current sources should be implemented to agree with the physical current conditions. Generally, this approach is capable of including nonlinear devices into FDTD algorithm, and performs accurate electromagnetic field simulations of microwave and millimeter wave circuits.
