Hi guys,

My transistor is the NE4210S01, bias point VDS = 2 V, ID = 10 mA and at 6 GHz.

I'm doing an availabe gain (Ga) design, keeping my load complex conj of the output reflection, and draw the constant gain circles in the GammaS plane:

I see that the gain circle corresponding to the MSG has some parts inside the stable region. Picking values of GammaS so that I have higher gain than the MSG, I get some GammaL according to the perfect match at the output - and this is also in the stable region! So I have stability both at the input and the output, even though choosing points on having higher gain than the MSG!

Can this be, and if so - why oh why?


Give me a job!

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
