Hi,
I am using Sentaurus to perform a simple AC simulation on a PN junction. I have an Anode terminal and a Cathode terminal and I am interested in obtaining I(Cathode)/V(Cathode) as a function of frequency in order to find the 3dB bandwidth. The simulation seems to converge but the parameters that it spits out is are a(1,1) and c(1,1) which is are defined as: I=A*V+i*omega*C*V where: I small signal current V small signal voltage omega  2pi * (operating frequency) i  imaginary unit So it looks like if I do sqrt(a^2+(2pi * (operating frequency) * c)^2) this should be I/V as a function of frequency. However what I get is a function increasing with frequency that looks nothing like a single pole system. Does anyone know how to solve the problem? I've already tried: 1. Using simple transient simulation to find the bandwidth (that works but I want the AC simulations). 2. Tried to use the RF library in SVisual to extract the Y matrix but that library only works for 2 ports i.e. 3 terminal devices.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Dinis
