100 W RF Transistor for 900 MHz Cellular Applications

Upcoming generations of cellular radio systems such as GSM EDGE or UMTS require increasing power levels to meet linearity requirements of transmitted signals. To reduce overall costs, equipment manufacturers aim at reducing the number of transistors in their RF power amplifiers. The consequence is a constant demand for bigger...

High Performance Comb Generator Multipliers

A new line of comb generator multiplier products is featured
A comb generator is a device with outputs that are multiple harmonics of an input signal. The output spectral tone lines are uniformly spaced at integer multiples of the input reference. A spectrum analyzer display of the output looks much like the teeth of a comb, which is how...

New Types of Millimeter-wave Noise Sources

Used for remote sensing in various applications and environments, microwave and millimeter-wave radiometers (RM) require frequent calibration. Microwave radiometers measure noise temperature using a suitable antenna which is designed to match a scene of interest, as shown in Figure 1 . In a technical sense, if the antenna's main...

An Adaptive Feedforward Amplifier for WCDMA Base Stations Using Imperfect Signal Cancellation

This article describes a new adaptive feedforward amplifier for a WCDMA system using an imperfect signal cancellation. Due to the complicated signal statistics, the distortion generated by the error amplifier is significantly reduced by an imperfect si...
As wireless systems evolve from second- to third- or fourth-generation, the linearity, efficiency and bandwidth requirements for power amplifiers become more stringent. Many techniques, including feedforward, envelope feedback and manifold types of predistorters, have been employed to effectively satisfy these performance requirements and to reduce the production costs for...
