GaN Power Amplifier Design Solutions

With RF GaN amplifier activity continuing to increase, this eBook provides six articles covering various design topics in commercial and military markets. The first two stories cover Aerospace & Defense applications with GaN being used in the Space Fence Radar System and as replacements for TWTAs in ECM systems. The next article takes a look at the adoption of GaN in the point to point microwave radio systems authored by Ericsson. With the high power densities achieved by GaN amplifiers, the thermal challenges can even be more critical than the electronic design issues so the next three articles look at addressing thermal challenges through heat sinking/mechanical design and various design techniques and solution to improve efficiency. We hope that this will improve your knowledge of GaN amplifier technology and thank Boonton and Qorvo for sponsoring this eBook.
