This model is intended to simulate the large signal performance of heterojunction bipolar transistors for use in high power, high frequency, oscillators, amplifiers, and mixers. A temperature model which includes velocity overshoot and carrier energy effects has been developed. The model is used to calculate the large signal “Y” parameters of an HBT. A comparison is made between predicted power performance using the “Y” parameters and a fully numerical, time domain computation. Advantages and disadvantages of each approach are given.
