Abstract

In this thesis, the whole process of design a low pass filter (LPF) for the wireless communication application has been presented. Integrated passive device technology based on GaAs substrate has been utilized to make the LPF. Schematic simulation and electromagnetic simulations are extensively used in the design process. EM simulation is used in the selection of layout design and processing parameters for design optimization of both the inductors and IPD harmonic filters. The effective use of EM simulation enables us to realize the successful development of high performance harmonic filters. To make the optimization be more flexible and also for a deeper understanding of the optimization theory, optimization using genetic algorithm is also implemented. The weight of each targets are adjustable, and a non-uniformly distributed goal for the harmonic rejection range is introduced to achieve better optimization results. The embedded LPF is built and measurement results show good agreement with the simulation data. This kind of very compact, high performance harmonic filters can be used in radio transceiver front-end modules. The realized harmonic filters have insertion loss less than 0.6 dB and harmonic rejections greater than 25 dB with a compact die size of 0.8 mm2.
