Abstract

The measured I-V data and the large-signal equivalent circuit of a resonant tunneling diode are exploited, through the analog behavioral modeling capabilities of Pspice, 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.
