Closed: What happens to output power and 3 BW in this circuit
Hi, I calcaulated L and C values for a butterworth filter, to get 3 dB BW of 50 GHz and attenuation of 6 dB at 60 GHz. Next, I gave 10 dBm input power and I got the expected result.
Again I took...

True, I didn't connect gate capacitors. Then how do we call this structure, cascode or stack? So if I dont connect those gate capacitors what changes would be there in performance parameters?

Hi, usually we would like to know what is the output power(Pout1dB) at input 1 dB compression point (Pin1dB). Does this mean first I find Pin1dB and then do the loadpull at this input power?...

Then how do you find the input/output capacitances ?

So you suggest I use Zm instead of ZP. To me also Zm makes sense.

I should say I need at least 20 dBm output power at P1dB(out) that means I can have 20 dBm even before reaching P1dB(out).
