In this work, we utilize the Finite-Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Method coupled to a full-band, Cellular Monte Carlo (CMC) simulator to model the behavior of high-frequency devices. Replacing the quasi-static Poisson solver with a more exact electromagnetic (EM) solver provides a full-wave solution of Maxwell’s equations, resulting in a more accurate model for determining the high-frequency response of microwave transistors.
