Abstract

Using the analogue behavioural modelling capabilities of Pspice, the current-voltage characteristics and the large-signal equivalent circuit of a resonant tunneling diode are exploited to create a Pspice compatible model for the diode. The model is used, with very few other components, in the simulation of a number of circuit applications, including a sinusoidal wave generator, a frequency multiplier and three state logic circuits. The simulated circuit details, the related waveforms and three-state logic operations are described. The circuits are characterized mainly by their reduced complexity and ease of analysis.
