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.

A novel design of the Doherty power amplifier (PA) to improve the efficiency at a back-off output power level.
Technical Papers & Articles
by David Yu-Ting Wu and Slim Boumaiza
A new Doherty amplifier configuration with an intrinsically broadband characteristic is presented based on the synthesis of key ideas derived from the analyses of the load modulation concept and the conventional Doherty amplifier. Important building blocks to implement the proposed Doherty amplifier structure are outlined – which include the quasi-lumped quarter-wave transmission line – as well as the Klopfenstein taper for broadband impedance matching.

The class-B/J mode continuum in power amplifiers (PAs) defined at the current source plane is discussed considering different parasitic elements including C DS as well as the package. Based on this realistic device description the change of the continuous load impedances depending on the reference plane is demonstrated. It is shown that the design flexibility predicted by the continuous mode theory decreases if the transistor package is taken into account. The presented investigations provide the basis for the design of a broadband GaN PA.

In the world of RF and microwave engineering – the design and development of solid-state amplifiers is a specialty. It has always required many years of specialized engineering experience and a suitable collection of test and measurement equipment. While these will always be necessary – to be successful in the marketplace today – it is also essential to use a combination of specialized and general CAD tools.

This paper presents the design of a wideband harmonically-tuned Doherty amplifier. The frequency-dependent back-off efficiency degradation was minimized by compensating the effect of the frequency-sensitive impedance inverters over the design band. Suitable choice of device size ratio as well as harmonic load tuning at back-off and maximum power operations were also considered – resulting in superior performance over the targeted design band.
