LNA ( S parameters ) - RF Cafe Forums

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 Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

hi to all ,
can anyone help me , please ?
I want to know that how can we fabricate FET with desired S parameters ? let me clear my question ....
suppose that I design LNA with S parameters taking from datasheet and now when I make its' layout I must make FET with exactly same S parameters as I took from datasheet. Please help me ....
you can mail me at :-

Hi Amit,

You have to take the S-Parameters from the data sheet. Usually manufacturers will provide S2P file for the device. Before you make the layout, you have to make simulation, and enter the properties of the transmission lines, via holes for ground and any other physical connection into the simulation. Another important thing is to enter the proerties of the substrate you intend to use into the simulation (Its dielectric constant,
Tan delta, width etc).The simulation will give you overall S-Parameters of the design including total gain and return losses. When you fabriacate your circuit you take from this simulation the dimensions of transmion lines and via holes for grounds.

Best regards,
