The evolution of integrated circuit technology demands that designers in this field adapt to ever-changing manufacturing techniques driven by performance, cost, benefit, and risk demands. Today’s power amplifier (PA) designer working in solid state technologies must navigate a plethora of available processes, including gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT), radio-frequency complementary metal oxide semiconductor (RF CMOS), and GaAs or silicon germanium (SiGe) heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT), to name just a few. Similarly, different design challenges demand different amplifier classes and/or topologies like Class AB, Darlingtons, switch-mode PAs, and digital predistortion.

Traditional modeling methods such as rules of thumb and spreadsheet calculations (Friis equations) give limited insight on the full performance of an RF link in next-generation wireless products. This white paper highlights the advantages of using specialized RF system simulation software to accurately predict critical metrics for wireless RF links.

Optimizing a PA design for one parameter invariably requires sacrifi cing the
performance of another. This delicate balance between performance and
effi ciency is not the only conundrum, because designers of 4G PAs must also
contend with demands for greater instantaneous bandwidth. As a result,
designers of next-generation PAs are relying on simulation more than ever
before, and their tasks include frequency domain simulation, time domain
simulation, and now circuit envelope simulation.

Signals intelligence describes a broad range of applications ranging from communications jamming to identification of interference or pirating signals. While this paper discusses many of the
specific needs for each application, it primarily focuses on the techniques required to analyze intermittent or "bursty" RF signals.
