ABSTRACT The design of N-section matching transformer operating at N arbitrary frequencies using the particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is demonstrated. Although analytical methods based on standard transmission line theory can be used in such designs, however, the analysis becomes cumbersome if N exceeds three, and numerical methods should be used to solve the resulting nonlinear equations. The design using the PSO, however, is much easier, and gives the same results as the analytical methods. Different examples are presented and compared with published literature

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a comprehensive theory of a dual-frequency complex load-matching technique based on transmission lines. The theoretical analysis is insightfully described, and the applicable regions of the design equations are specified. To substantiate the theory, a corresponding methodology is proposed to design a dual-band 10/24-GHz amplifier, which is fabricated by standard 0.13-$\mu{\hbox {m}}$ 1P8M CMOS technology. This amplifier involves synthetic quasi-TEM transmission lines to build the dual-frequency matching circuits. The comparisons between simulations and on-wafer measurements are reported to establish the feasibility and flexibility of the presented technique in microwave applications.

    ABSTRACT: A novel single-stub impedance transformer for matching frequency-dependent complex impedance load is presented. The nonlinear equations to design this transformer are derived for different termination types of the stub line. The proposed impedance matching scheme is successfully adapted to the design of input matching network of a low noise transistor. For demonstration, an impedance transformer for a frequency-dependent complex impedance load is simulated and fabricated. The results of both simulation and measurement verify the validity of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: Particle swarm optimisation (PSO) has been enormously successful. Within little more than a decade hundreds of papers have reported successful applications of PSO. In fact, there are so many of them, that it is difficult for PSO practitioners and researchers to have a clear up-to-date vision of what has been done in the area of PSO applications. This brief paper attempts to fill this gap, by categorising a large number of publications dealing with PSO applications stored in the IEEE Xplore database at the time of writing.
