I would use an optocoupler like the hcpl2201 with a bipolar push-pull stage after it to deliver enough current to turn the mosfet on and off quickly enough.
Your problem there is a very slow turn off time.

I'm using components from the same manufacturer. If you say got parasitics or losses problem, why it didn't affect S22?
Sorry, I'm still no idea what happening here...
I agree, if you have a short or open at the input, the gain (or S21) will be low.
But S11 could be different from the simulation when other S-parameters are relativ

Hello to all.
I am trying to design a VCO in 90nm TSMC. The problem is that the current mirror i am designing has large mismatch between the Iref and the Iout. I am using rf nmos transistors to design it. The model i have available has maximum length in nmos 240nm. Can i use a dc mosfet to design the curent mirror?

Is your question related to the leakage current of the mosfets?
A mosfet can't turn completely off , there is a current of a few uA passing through the mosfet even when it is off, the parameter is described in the datasheet.

there a way to protect the mosfets from saturating using resistors or capacitors?
Due you are under development stage, I suppose you are using a DC regulated power supply, with limit current protection, wright ?
That´s the standard procedure, and if the case, there is no need to do that you are asking.

Hi.. You could use mosfet drivers which are specifically design to do the job. Linear techbology has very good one for N or P channel FETs.
International Rectifier has very good one too..

It looks like you are making a constant current source or current limiter. You will need to use a P type mosfet for the series pass transistor and put the source to the input and the drain to the output.

If you use normal enhancement nmos (nmos outside nwell) as cap, the S, D and B terminals should be tied to VSS. Only the G terminal can be connected to other node. If you want a mos cap not connected to VSS, please use mosfet in nwell -- either nmos in nwell or pmos in nwell. On the latter case, the mosfet should be properly biased.

Your gate must be positive against the source. Thinking upper sides, source side of the mosfet is at bus voltage when it is open. So if your bus voltage is say 48V then your gate must be 60V or so according to the ground and 12V (If your gate needs 12V to be driven) according to the source. To accomplish this, you need a bootstrap circuit or an iso

You should never connect microcontroller pin(s) to a device such as a motor .. These pins are designed to drive buffers, sometimes directly LEDs or CMOS/TTL gates, but are not desgned to cope with inductive loads.
After all, they can "consume" only some mA of current in sinking configuration and produce next to nothing in source configuration ..
