In this paper an approach for high-speed InP DHBT modeling valid to 110 GHz is reported. Electromagnetic (EM) simulation is applied to predict the embedded network model caused by pad parasitics. The form of the parasitic network calls for a 4-step de-embedding approach. Applying direct parameter extraction on the de-embedded device response leads to accurate small-signal model description of the InP DHBT. An parameter extraction approach is described for the Agilent HBT model, which assures consistency between large-signal and bias-dependent smallsignal modeling.
