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...

Integrated Variable Gain Amplifiers

A line of variable gain amplifiers (VGA) has been introduced for use in transmitter and receiver automatic gain control (AGC) circuits, and as variable gain blocks following low noise amplifier stages in high dynamic range receiver front ends. The new amplifiers integrate high performance amplifiers and attenuators within a...

The Concept of Predistortion

The intention of this article is to provide a tool for the design of a predistorter, a component intended to correct unwanted nonlinear effects in power amplifiers. In order to come up with a design, a concept of predistortion is discussed. The conclus...
This article continues the trend of previous publications, 1,2 to simplify the prediction of RF performance of systems designed for wireless digital communications. The first shows the correlation between sidelobes and intermodulation (IM) products. Sidelobes are the result of the spectrum re-growth when a digitally modulated signal is applied...
