Abstract:

Inefficiencies in radar transmitters lead to issues with power generation, heat removal, reduced lifetime, and cost of operation. A high power RF amplifier with high efficiency would be very useful in military and commercial applications. Auriga is proposing to investigate two methods for improving the efficiency of S and X-band amplifiers. Gallium Nitride (GaN) devices will be used to satisfy the high power requirement. Its use in high efficiency technologies has been demonstrated by Auriga.
