Design and equivalent circuit of an inductor with ferromagnetic film is described. High-frequency circuit simulation including inductances is carried out by two methods: 1) a SPICE-based simulation in which the distributed linear circuit is converted into GCRL equivalent circuit and 2) a harmonic balance method in which the nonlinear active part of the circuit is solved in terms of sinusoidal harmonics in frequency domain. High-frequency circuits including inductors and active elements such as low noise amplifiers are analyzed by these methods.
