Nonlinear Circuit Analysis in Time and Frequency Domain Application Note - Example: The Forced Van-der-Pol Oscillator

What: AWR Corporation, in collaboration with its customer Jose Luis Flores, has added two new application notes to its technical papers library. These application notes introduce a technique known as auxiliary generator (AG) for nonlinear circuit analysis. AG is useful for broadening the set of solutions that can be reproduced from a harmonic-balance analysis and can help study their stability properties in order to optimize a nonlinear circuit for a desired response. The first application note analyses a very simple LC resonator in time and frequency domains and illustrates how oscillatory solutions can be found and reproduced from a nonlinear circuit with the aid of AG. The second application note expands on the topic by explaining how to apply AG to a more complex nonlinear circuit simulation of a forced Van der Pol oscillator.

Modeling a Printed VHF Balun Leveraging EM Simulation

The use of printed microstrip couplers in power amplifiers operating at microwave frequencies above 1 GHz has been well established and numerous papers have been written about the design of such structures. It is surprising, however, that little has been written about the subject of printed baluns (BALanced to UNbalanced) - electrical devices that convert between a balanced signal and an unbalanced signal. Even more surprising is that the dominant approach to power combining at VHF and UHF is via coaxial cables, which comes with inherent assembly, cost, and thermal issues.

RF/Microwave EDA Software Design Flow Considerations for PA MMIC Design

The evolution of integrated circuit technology demands that designers in this field adapt to ever-changing manufacturing techniques driven by performance, cost, benefit, and risk demands. Today’s power amplifier (PA) designer working in solid state technologies must navigate a plethora of available processes, including gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT), radio-frequency complementary metal oxide semiconductor (RF CMOS), and GaAs or silicon germanium (SiGe) heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT), to name just a few. Similarly, different design challenges demand different amplifier classes and/or topologies like Class AB, Darlingtons, switch-mode PAs, and digital predistortion.

Understanding and Correctly Predicting Critical Metrics for Wireless RF Links

Leverage Circuit Envelope Simulation to Improve

Optimizing a PA design for one parameter invariably requires sacrifi cing the performance of another. This delicate balance between performance and effi ciency is not the only conundrum, because designers of 4G PAs must also contend with demands for greater instantaneous bandwidth. As a result, designers of next-generation PAs are relying on simulation more than ever before, and their tasks include frequency domain simulation, time domain simulation, and now circuit envelope simulation.
