Addressing Efficiency and Linearity With a Single-Ended Class AB PA Using NI AWR Software

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.

What:
A new application note featuring NI AWR Design Environment discusses the novel design of a single-ended RF power amplifier (PA) that exploits the “sweet spots” in Class AB amplifier responses and optimizes third-harmonic termination to maximize the overall power-added efficiency (PAE) of the PA without compromising the linearity performance. The design flow uses Microwave Office circuit design software for all circuit simulations and focuses on finding accurate models for the devices and lumped elements used.
