Gain Slope Issues in Microwave Modules?   Physical constraints for broadband operation If you are a microwave hardware engineer you most likely have had a few sobering experiences when you test your new design the first time, particularly wideband high frequency modules –they almost never look like the model. Many of the bigger issues come down to physics. Broadband modules e.g. 2 to 18 GHz virtually always have gain roll-off at the high end of the band, from a combination of transistor and package parasitic L’s & C’s give riseRead More
