### 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?
