15-W; 6.0-GHz; GaN HEMT Die

Note: CGH60015D is Not Recommended for New Designs. Refer to CG2H80015D

Wolfspeed’s CGH60015D is a gallium-nitride (GaN) high-electron-mobility transistor (HEMT). GaN has superior properties compared to silicon or gallium arsenide; including higher breakdown voltage; higher saturated electron drift velocity; and higher thermal conductivity. GaN HEMTs offer greater power density and wider bandwidths compared to Si and GaAs transistors.

This Simulation of power amplifiers (PAs) for modern wireless base station and small cell systems is an essential part of the design process. At a cell site – the PA consumes the bulk of the dc power – generates the most heat – and thus represents the greatest operational cost. Maximum PA efficiency is a necessity to manage these costs – which is a sizeable challenge in a PA that also must be highly linear to support the complex multilevel modulation types and wide bandwidths used for current and developing wireless transmission standards. Accurate simulation allows the PA designer to meet these challenges by exploring the available design options and then optimizing the circuit that is selected for the application.

by Junghwan Moon; Seunghoon Jee; Jungjoon Kim; Jangheon Kim; Bumman Kim – Operational behaviors of the class-F and class-F amplifiers are investigated. For the half-sinusoidal voltage waveform of the class-F amplifier – the amplifier should be operated in the highly saturated region – in which the phase relation between the fundamental and second harmonic currents are out-of-phase. The class-F amplifier can operate at the less saturated region to form a half sinewave current waveform. Therefore – the class-F amplifier has a bifurcated current waveform from the hard saturated operation – but the class-F amplifier operates as a switch at the saturated region for a second harmonic tuned half-sine waveform.

Paul Saad; Paolo Colantonio; Junghwan Moon; Luca Piazzon; Franco Giannini; Kristoffer Andersson; Bumman Kim; Christian Fager – This paper presents the design – implementation – and experimental results of a highly efficient concurrent dualband GaN-HEMT power amplifier at 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz. A bare-die approach – in conjunction with a harmonic sourcepull/load-pull simulation approach – are used in order to design and implement the harmonically tuned dual-band PA. For a continuous wave output power of 42.3 dBm the measured gain is 12 dB in the two frequency bands; while the power added efficiency is 64% in both bands. Linearized modulated measurements – using concurrently 10MHz LTE and WiMAX signals – show an average PAE of 25% and and adjacent channel leakage ratio of -48 dBc and -47 dBc at 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz – respectively.

by Mustafa Ozen – Christer M. Andersson – Thomas Eriksson Mustafa Acar – Rik Jos – Christian Fager – This paper studies linearity of a 2 GHz – 10 Watt peak output power RF pulse width modulation (RF-PWM) based transmitter. The transmitter incorporates a tunable load network class-E PA as the final output stage. The tunable load network enables dynamic optimization of the class-E along with the duty cycle resulting in high efficiency over a wide range of output power levels. A digital predistiortion based linearization scheme is proposed to enhance the linearity of the transmitter.

GaN Solutions: Small Packages for Big Radar Challenges

AESA systems use active arrays, each with hundreds or even thousands of antennas. In many cases, the system is evaluated on the basis of size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). The technology enabling the latest AESA radar systems must therefore offer significant benefits in terms of SWaP-C improvements.
