Abstract

An optimization procedure for GaAs integrated circuits to achieve both small-signal and large-signal performance is proposed. Besides the geometrical dimensions of the the circuit passive elements, the process parameters are used as optimization variables to define two separate sets of optimization variables for small-signal and large-signal optimization. A large-signal MESFET model, based on simple expressions among circuit elements and process parameters, allows an effective implementation of the proposed optimization method in commercial CAD tools.
