    ABSTRACT: An L/S band high-power and low-distortion AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructure field-effect-transistor amplifier has been developed. The amplifier employed two pairs of prematched GaAs chips mounted on a single package, and the total output power was combined in a push-pull configuration with a low-loss microstrip balun circuit. The developed amplifier demonstrated state of-the-art performance of 140 W output power with 11.5 dB linear gain at 2.2 GHz. In addition, it exhibited extremely low distortion performance, which is suitable for digital cellular base station system applications

    ABSTRACT: An L/S-band high-power and low-distortion AlGaAs/GaAs HFET amplifier has been developed. The amplifier employed two pairs of pre-matched GaAs chips mounted on a single package and the total output-power was combined in push-pull configuration with a microstrip balun circuit. The developed amplifier demonstrated state-of-the-art performance of 140 W output-power with 11.5 dB linear gain at 2.2 GHz. In addition, it exhibited extremely low distortion performance, which is suitable for digital cellular base station system applications

    ABSTRACT: We have developed a GaAs FET power amplifier that demonstrated a high PAE (Power-Added Efficiency) of 68% with 17.1 W output power and 16 dB linear gain at 1.5 GHz. The amplifier also exhibited low distortion characteristics of less than -21 dBc NPR (Noise Power Ratio) at the 5 dB-output power back-off point from 2 dB-gain compression point. These excellent results are obtained by optimizing both the drain bias circuit and the internal matching network. We proved experimentally that distortion characteristics such as IMD (Inter-Modulation Distortion) or NPR are drastically degraded when the absolute value of the drain bias circuit impedance at low frequency are high. We have designed the drain bias circuit not to influence the distortion characteristics and internal output and input matching networks to be optimized not only at the fundamental frequency but also at the second harmonic frequency to obtain high efficiency characteristics.

    ABSTRACT: A 50-W low distortion GaAs MESFET for L-band has been successfully developed by optimizing chip design and adopting nearly class-B push-pull operation. The newly developed FET achieved a P<sub>1 dB</sub> of 47.1 dBm (51.3 W) with a linear gain (GL) of 13.1 dB and the maximum drain efficiency of 57% (f=1.5 GHz, V<sub>DS</sub>=10 V, I<sub>DS</sub>=3%I<sub>dss</sub>). A saturation output power of 47.3 dBm (53.7 W) has also been obtained. This is the highest output power reported so far of GaAs FETs considering an operation at nearly class B. In addition, the FETs exhibited both good linearity and distortion performances. The newly developed FETs will contribute to the improvement in performance of digital cellular base station systems

    ABSTRACT: An S-band high-efficiency power GaAs MESFET has been developed by employing the second-harmonic terminating technique in both the input and output matching circuits. This internally matched power FET demonstrates state-of-the-art performance of 30.9 W (44.9 dBm) output power with more than 60% power-added efficiency and a 15.0 dB linear gain at 2.5 GHz. Successful termination of the second-harmonic was confirmed by measuring gate and drain voltage waveforms using EOS (Electro-Optic Sampling). This amplifier can be assembled in conventional ceramic package, and thus is suitable for satellite communication system applications
