I'd previously tried EWB/Multisim to model a single RF class C
amplifying stage . I wouldn't have thought that was *too* demanding,
but I was getting like 140 - 200v o/p signals as opposed to 2*Vcc as
it should have been (for a Vcc of 12v) and the waveform o/put was
highly irregular and not the pure sine wave it should have been.
Another niggle was the program didn't seem to register a problem when
I put 12kv on Vcc! One assumes the full model parameters for the BDX36
BJT weren't fully included. I wonder how many more device parameters
weren't included in the other devices in Multisim's libraries.
A friend of mine in the know told me that EWB is no use for
RF/non-linear simulations anyway and suggested Symphony or Serenade
instead. I've yet to try those, though.
