Using Component Models to Achieve First Pass Success – A Transmitter Case Study: Part 1, Harmonic Filter Design

Utilizing models that include component and PCB parasitics in place of ideal lumped elements in microwave circuit design software produces filter simulation results that are accurate enough to provide first pass success in an example filter design for a transmitter application. This two-part article presents a case study in simulation-based RF/ Microwave design using NI AWR Design Environment, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, in the context of an example transmitter design. The focus in Part 1 is on an output filter design using advanced linear component models and simulation methods.
