Numerical Modeling of Passive Networks and Components in Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICS)
A review of the vital issues affecting the accurate and efficient simulation of the electrical behavior of passive MMIC networks and circuit components is given. With emphasis on the microstrip structures, we discuss what constitutes an efficient algorithm in developing a numerical solver using a mixed-potential, integral equation approach.
