Design of an Amplifier Using a Harmonic Termination Matching Tuner and Harmonic Blocking Bias Line

In this article, a new 3 dB branch line hybrid, using an asymmetric defected ground structure (DGS) microstrip, is proposed. The proposed branch line coupler suppresses the second and third harmonic components effectively. If transmission lines having ...
April 4, 2006
Harmonic load-pull systems have gained importance recently, because such setups allow the appropriate harmonic terminations for a transistor to be determined in order to obtain high efficiency and high linearity. Harmonic load-pull can also make the verification of transistor models possible. However, the active load-pull systems that are presently...

Design and Temperature Compensation of a Ku-band Channel Amplifier with ALC for a Satellite Transponder

This article describes the design, development and test results of a Ku-band channel amplifier with an automatic level control (ALC) system for a satellite transponder. A systematic temperature characterization and optimization procedure depending upon...
April 3, 2006
In tropical regions, satellite communication links at Ku-band frequencies face excess up- and downlink paths loss due to rainfall. The uplink rain attenuation causes a decrease in the signal level received at the satellite receiver, which leads to a decrease of the satellite transmitter power. This signal level is...
