Title:
The Hybrid TLM-MM Approach for Simulation of MMICs 
Abstract:
The design of microwave monolithic integrated circuits (MMICs) requires the exact full-wave modelling of the electromagnetic field in the semiconductor and insulator regions as well as within the conductor layers. The transverse dimensions of the transmission structures in modern MMICs at frequencies above 10 GHz are comparable to the skin depth. Therefore, an accurate simulation of the electromagnetic field inside the conductors is necessary. The usage of conventional simulation tools is not al...    »
