This short paper presents the concept of particle swarm optimization technique applied for the design of broadband microwave amplifiers. The method that is developed is based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique applied to a compensated matching network on a single stage transistor amplifier to get the best optimized result in the design. To prove the concept four different operating points were considered on the microwave amplifier design. The designs were verified via simulation results obtained by different simulators. It is shown that PSO is a fast and an efficient method and can be used in the design of broadband microwave transistor amplifiers.
