In this work, we characterise for the first time a digital circuit, and more specifically an inverter, by means of vectorial large-signal measurements. The results give us a more complete picture of its behaviour at microwave frequencies, since parameters such as charging and discharging currents, peak currents, influence of the applied load, . . ., can now be visualised and evaluated directly. Moreover, device models aimed for digital circuit design can now be verified in detail under… CONTINUE READING
