Design and Synthesis of a High Power PA

Next generation high power, high bandwidth electronic devices rely on well-designed RF/microwave components for peak performance. In the specialized world of RF and microwave engineering, the design and development of power amplifiers (PAs) is a specialty within a specialty that requires many years of focused engineering experience and a suitable collection of test and measurement (T&M) equipment. And, while expertise and T&M equipment will always be necessary for PA design, in today’s competitive marketplace, it is becoming essential to also use a combination of specialized and general design automation software tools to cut design cycles and maximize performance in order to bring the best products to market first.
