HSPA: New Challenges for Power Amplifiers in UMTS User Equipment

Mobile radio technology, based on the universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS), is developing at breakneck speed. Network operators worldwide are currently upgrading their networks with new high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology, which optimizes the data transmission from the network to the user equipment (downlink). New transmission methods...

The Grid Amplifier: Enabling High Power Millimeter-wave Systems

There are a number of communications, radar and imaging applications spanning Ka-band through W-band (26 to 110 GHz) that require transmitter output powers in the range of a few watts to a few tens of watts. Vacuum-tube sources and amplifiers have long been available that can produce output power...

MMIC LNAs for Wireless Infrastructure Applications

Wireless infrastructure designers must often contend with conflicting goals when developing new equipment for the base transceiver station (BTS) market. The components used in today's systems are frequently required to operate over multiple bands and under multiple modulation formats. The quest for higher performance, lower cost, component interchangeability and...

A Diode Linearizer for Microwave Power Amplifiers

The performance of communication systems, in both space and ground segments, is degraded by the nonlinearity of the power amplifiers that are operated in saturation to obtain higher efficiency. Linearizing is the technique used to improve the performance of communication systems when power amplifiers are operated in saturation. The...
