Comparative analysis of VDMOS/LDMOS power transistors for RF amplifiers
Chevaux, N.; De Souza, M.M.;
Publisher: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
A comparison between the RF performance of vertical and lateral power MOSFETs is presented. The role of each parasitic parameter in the assessment of the power gain, 1-dB compression point, efficiency, stability, and output matching is evaluated quantitatively using new... View more
