This PIN Diode Circuit Designers’ Handbook was written for the Microwave and RF Design Engineer. A major part of this Handbook is devoted to the basic circuit applications of this unique device.

In each chapter, a circuit function is treated in detail followed by specific selected Size: 1MB. The accurate physical parameters of the semiconductor devices are critical to the physics‐based circuit simulation, which solves the carrier transport equations to model the semiconductor devices.

However, the conventional method extracts physical parameters from low‐frequency measurements such as the DC I ‐ V curve, which cannot work at Author: Ke Xu, Xing Chen, Bing Zhang, Qiang Chen. circuits, but their modelling is still a big challenge in circuit simulations nowadays. This paper explores modelling nonlinear characteristics of circuits containing semiconductor devices by presenting a modi ed physically based simulation method.

This paper demonstrated the potential to build increasingly complex semiconductor models using the same methodology. An accurate physics based model for power PiN diodes is derived and implemented as a subcircuit into the PSPICE circuit simulator.

The model is based on an equivalent circuit representation of the. PIN diode in forward bias The electrical equivalent circuit of the diode is a resistor Rs in series with a low inductance Ls (Fig 2).

Fig. 2 Electrical equivalent circuit of a PIN diode polarized in direct The PIN diodes are characterized in forward bias by the value of the RS resistance and in reverse bias by the Ct value of the capacity [3].

The extracted bias dependent equivalent circuit parameters are fit to analytical expressions. To demonstrate the model, a PIN switching diode has been characterized and modeled. The model for the device is based on 30kHz-3GHz measured s-parameters, and the resulting model has been implemented in a commercially available circuit simulator (ADS).

For the advanced PIN-diode model (PIN-DiodeRC), described here and implemented in APLAC, further improvements and changes have been made in order to create a PIN-diode model as accurate as possible. The enhancements include frequency and bias dependent junction capacitance, improved diode reverse bias operation and improved diode convergence.

If the Initial Current IC parameter is set to a value greater than 0, the steady-state calculation considers the initial status of the diode as closed. 1 GHz, PIN diode designs are commonly used.

The most popular circuit configurations are the TEE, bridged TEE, and the PI. All these designs use PIN diodes as current-controlled RF resistors with resistance values set by DC control and established by an AGC loop.
