Abstract:

ZATION OF AN UNKNOWN DEVICE, REDUCE THE DATA TO A FORM SUITABLE FOR FURTHER PROCESSING AND PERFORM A CIRCUIT ANALYSIS CHANGING CRITICAL ELEMENT PARAMETERS IN AN INTELLIGENT MANNER UNTIL SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS ARE MET. The execution of the iterative analysis may be performed automatically by incorporating an efficient self-optimization algorithm in order to achieve some optimal objective. A variety of these techniques have been described in some detail. Several examples of the computer simulation of the anticipated performance of certain types of solid state microwave integrated circuit amplifiers have demonstrated the effectiveness of using actual measured device data and CAD to realize an optimum circuit design. The results obtained on these amplifier modules working under conditions identical to those specified in their simulation have proved to be in excellent agreement. Author
