RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Spice simulation of Gunn Diode Oscillator - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I'm new in this forum. I wanted to know if anyone has some experience
with modeling at both device and behavioral model of a Gunn Diode? I
am working specifically on an experimental set-up using a MA86728 connected
to a small Horn Antenna. Some tips on how to be able to do this in SPICE
will be appreciated.

What level of accuracy
do you need in the simulation? SPICE has some inherent limitations that
will make some aspects of the simulation either extremely difficult
or impossible - but some level of success can probably be had.
What is important to you to get from such a simulation?
