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 R. M. Smith – J. Lees – P. J. Tasker – J. Benedikt and S. C. Cripps – A high-efficiency push-pull power amplifier has been designed and measured across a bandwidth of 250MHz to 3.1GHz. The output power was 46dBm with a drain efficiency of above 45% between 700MHz and 2GHz – with a minimum output power of 43dBm across the entire band. In addition – a minimum of 60% drain efficiency and 11dB transducer gain was measured between 350MHz and 1GHz. The design was realized using a coaxial cable transmission line balun – which provides a broadband 2:1 impedance transformation ratio and reduces the need for bandwidth-limiting conventional matching. The combination of output power – bandwidth and efficiency are believed to be the best reported to date at these frequencies.
