This short tutorial video explains the key steps to followed for a distributed matching network design taking Zin & Zout information from a Cree (Wolfspeed) GaN transistor datasheet.
We start the matching network design using ideal transmission lines in Interactive Smith Chart tool in ADS which then is converted to the equivalent microstrip line based network. We then optimize the matching network components to nullify the effects cause practical microstrip lines and junctions. Finally layout is generated and EM simulation is performed for more accuracy.
