20 GHz RF Amplifier Design – ADS

This is a 20 GHz amplifier circuit, made using smith chart impedance matching in ADS. This circuit is one of the first times I have used this powerful software. Glad to be putting my emag theory to work to build something real. The report should be helpful for me to jog my memory to do it again. With the notes I have, a similar circuit should be possible.

For the impedance matching, I considered using an inductor, though using only caps and t-lines, the result seemed to be cleaner.



See the following for the full report:
