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

I wonder how to simulate follwing condition correctly:
I have a Transistor with a connection lead of 12 mm width.
first matching element has a width of 23mm.
I have a large signal
model of the transistor for my simulator (ADS).
Das anyone konw,
how to simulate the behaviour correctley?
Transistor -> Microstripline
Transisor -> Impedance Step (12mm
-> 23mm) -> Microstip (23mm)
Both simulatons show different
Would be happy for the comments from you.

The second option
which you mentioned, namely to use an impedance step is the right one.
Of course that both simulations show different results, because you
have a discontinuity in the impedance if you don't use an impedance
step, and therfore you get an impedance mismatch and poor return loss.
