High frequency substrate losses for RF LDMOS are analyzed using numerical device simulation. An equivalent circuit model is developed which accurately describes the off-state losses. Based on the simulation and model significant improvements in terms of output resistance are demonstrated; using an optimized device on high resistivity substrate. This is very important in terms of efficiency for RF amplifiers.
