Fixing the Curtice FET Model

Method used to prevent convergence difficulties in the Curtice model when parameter extraction is imperfect
Steve Maas
No Comments
Technical Feature Fixing the Curtice FET Model Convergence difficulties are common in nonlinear analyses of circuits using a Curtice model. The problem is not the model itself, but the limitations of the parameters describing the gate I/V characteristic. In this article, we show why that failure occurs, and how...
