As a crude method to simulate you can use a stripline element, make Er =1.0, the Thickness &width = the diameter of the wire, L = 1cm , and the substraight
height will be your closest ground...

Closed: Re: Input power for IP3 calculation

You should take an IP3 measurement at ~10dB backed off from the PA's / RF Chains P1dB point. Thus reduce the I/P pwr till the O/P pwr is ~ 10dB lower than the P1dB point.

You need to be in the...

Closed: Re: Help to confirm this simple math calculation with dB's

I think there was a misnomer .
dB vs dBm

dB is a ratio , and dBm is a power referenced to 1mW.

So 60dB + 60 dB is not a clear statement. Unless you mean a factor of 1000 + another factor of...

I think you have a few issues.
1) The TL1 is acting as a matched load at the input of your circuit, and TL 2 and the Didoes ect is in parallel so
that will cause a mismatch.

You need to realize that a 1/2 λ at 1.6GHz is ≡ 1λ at 3.2GHz, so this effect will always be true. You can
