This paper presents an application of the FDTD method to large-signal analysis of active and nonlinear microwave circuits. Nonlinear characteristics, such as harmonic generation and intermodulation, are analyzed through this full-wave technique. Results are validated by comparing with those of HP MDS simulation and are in good agreement. Moreover, the advantage of the method is demonstrated by simulating a packaged circuit.
