Linearity Improvement of MMIC Power Amplifiers at Reduced Output Power Backoff
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
In modern communication systems, complex waveforms force amplifiers to operate under inefficient conditions in order to achieve the necessary linearity. It is extremely difficult and costly to optimize the design of an amplifier for the best trade-off between linearity and efficiency. Under this program, methods, techniques and tools to reduce the cost and duration of the design effort will be developed. Then, a multi-stage Ka-band power amplifier designed using the methods, techniques and tools will be fabricated and demonstrated to be both more linear and more efficient than present day amplifiers.
