Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all

Post subject: GaAs MESFET SPICE Model Posted: Tue May 08,

I'm trying to simulate a circuit on ADS that works between
500MHz and 2500MHz. I decided to use a GaAs MESFET but I'm having some
problems in finding an accurate model. Can anyone point me to where
I can get accurate models (some examples of devices that I would like
to find SPICE models for are CLY5, CLY10, or CLY15)? If these models
are not available, how can I know the values to input in the MESFET
model in ADS?

There are ususally 2 sources for that:
1. To ask the manufacturer
for the SPICE model.
2. The data is available in the ADS or other
simulation tool you are using.
Sometimes the SPICE model is
not available as a file but as a list of parameters which you have to
manually enter into the simulation tool. I have done that several times
in the past with GaAs FET transistors which I used for design an RF
If you need more information, please
let me know.

also in ADS a feature
called netlist translator , u can convert the models of pspice , hspice
, spectre to ADS model , it is very efficient
