In this article, the feasible design target space is determined for the input stage-requirements of an ultra-wide band low-noise front end design using a single transistor. The problem is set as an optimization problem where honey-bees mating have been used as search and optimization tool within in the problem domain. The primary reason to use this algorithm is ease of its use, broad applicability and global perspective. The honey-bee mating process has been considered as a typical swarm-based approach to optimization, in which the search algorithm is inspired by the process of honey-bee mating in real life. In this paper, the honey-bee mating (HBMO) algorithm is presented as a new meta-heuristic optimizationtool to determine design target space for a microwave amplifier subject to the potential performance of the employed transistor.
