Find the Key to Broadband PA Design (.PDF Download)

May 4, 2016

A simulation-based methodology for broadband power-amplifier (PA) design can be accomplished using load-line, load-pull, and real-frequency synthesis techniques. Thus, by taking advantage of simulation software and nonlinear transistor models, the design process can be streamlined. In the application note, “A Simulation-Based Flow for Broadband GaN Power Amplifier Design,” National Instruments presents the design of a Class F PA using a gallium-nitride (GaN) high-electron-mobility transistor (HEMT)...
