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 Seunghoon Jee; Junghwan Moon; Jungjoon Kim; Junghwan Son; Bumman Kim – The switching behavior of Class-E power amplifiers (PAs) is described. Although the zero voltage switching can be performed properly – the charging process at the switch-off transition cannot be abrupt and the waveform deviates from the ideal shape – degrading the efficiency. For the operation above maximum frequency – the charging process should be even faster but it cannot follow. Moreover – the discharging process is not sufficiently fast and further degrades the efficiency. The discharging process is assisted by the bifurcated current at saturation. The performance of the Class-E PA above the maximum frequency is enhanced by the nonlinear – which helps to shape the voltage waveform. The bifurcated current itself cannot generate enough of a second-harmonic voltage component to shape the required voltage waveform. The performance of the Class-E PA can be further improved by a second-harmonic tuning and a conjugate matched output load – leading to the saturated PA. Compared with the Class-E PA – the saturated amplifier delivers higher output power and efficiency. A highly efficient saturated amplifier is designed using a Wolfspeed GaN HEMT CGH40010 device at 3.5 GHz. It provides a drain efficiency of 75.8% at a saturated power of 40.2 dBm (10.5 W).

by Thomas M. Hone; Souheil Bensmida; Kevin A. Morris; Mark A. Beach; Joe P. McGeehan; Jonathan Lees; Johannes Benedikt; Paul J. Tasker – Mathematical analysis of Doherty amplifiers have assumed many simplifications. Most notably – the peaking amplifier does not contribute power into the load and the peaking stage has an observed impedance of infinity. This paper will show that these simplifications impair the performance of a single-input Doherty amplifier and that phase tuning for compensation is needed to improve the overall system performance.

RF Power Amplification 101: Amplifier Classes

The purpose of the RF PA is to increase the power of the RF input signal. This is achieved by applying the signal to the gate. This article compares some of the common amplifier classes, starting with the most-linear but least-efficient Class A to the still-linear (due to the ideal transistor) but more-efficient Class F and inverse-F.

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.
