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.

Presentation from the 2008 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) Workshop on Challenges in Model-Based HPA DesignThis presentation discusses attributes of GaN HEMTs – Cree GaN HEMT models – design examples (Broadband CW Amplifiers and Linear WiMAX Amplifier) – and future model improvements.

by Rocco Giofrè; Paolo Colantonio; Franco Giannini; Luca Piazzon – In this letter – a new output combining network for the implementation of a Doherty Power Amplifier (DPA) is presented. The proposed topology simultaneously allows the active load modulation and the output matching – by adopting more realizable elements than the standard DPA – especially when high output power levels are required. The innovative design approach is demonstrated through a practical prototype realization based on GaN-HEMT devices. Experimental results have shown a 65%–48% efficiency at about 42–36 dBm output power with a gain compression lower than 1.5 dB from 1.95 to 2.25 GHz.

Integrated Expertise Delivers the Best GaN Solutions for X-Band PAs

Gallium nitride is the undisputed technology for achieving high-efficiency operation in high-frequency applications, such as those at X-band (8–12 GHz). But device selection for X-band applications doesn’t end with choosing the material technology, because turning the bulk material characteristics into high-performance GaN on SiC devices is quite another matter.
