Design of a Dual-band PA for MM-Wave 5G

Technical tutorial video describing the design, layout and performance of a dual-band power amplifier (PA) MMIC, capable of electronically switching its operating band between the 26 GHz and 32 GHz 5G bands. Keysight ADS is used to design and layout the dual-band 5G PA on a commercially available 0.15µm gate length PHEMT process. The small signal gain is around 20 dB in each band with a P-1 dB point of around 1 W.
