About the International Microwave Symposium High Efficiency Power Amplifier Student Design Competition
The International Microwave Symposium High Efficiency Power Amplifier Student Design Competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students registered at an educational establishment. The competitors are required to design, construct, and measure a high efficiency power amplifier, at a frequency of their choice above 1 GHz but less than 20 GHz, and having an output power level of at least 5 watts, but less than 100 watts. The winner will be judged on the design, which demonstrates the highest power added efficiency (PAE). The power amplifiers must be present at the testing to assist with the evaluation.
