David Vye, Cadence
(advance registration required)
The Doherty power amplifier (PA) configuration offers a cost-effective solution for achieving a low distortion yet efficient amplifier. To properly design a Doherty PA, RF engineers need an understanding of how these devices work, along with suitable RF circuit simulation technology such as Cadence® AWR Design Environment® software and accurate device models.
This webinar, presented jointly by Dr. Osman Ceylan of Maury Microwave and David Vye of Cadence, overviews a Doherty PA theory, as well as a turnkey measurement-to-model flow based on Maury Microwave and AMCAD Engineering load-pull and enhanced poly-harmonic distortion (EPHD) models. In addition, the process used to design and validate a Doherty PA will be described, including measurements, model extraction, circuit design, circuit fabrication, and, finally, validation measurements to demonstrate first-pass design success.
Dr. Osman Ceylan is a senior applications engineer at Maury Microwave. Prior to that he was a researcher at Japan Aerospace Agency (JAXA) and a high-power RF device, MMIC, IPD and amplifier designer at Ampleon BV. His current research interests are high power device characterization, load-pull techniques, calibration methods, and high-power amplifier design. He received his B.S, M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Istanbul Technical University.
David Vye is a senior product marketing manager for Cadence. David has held a number of engineering and marketing positions throughout the RF/microwave industry, including editor of Microwave Journal, business development manager at ANSYS, product marketing manager at Ansoft Corporation, senior scientist at Raytheon Research Division and MMIC design engineer at M/A-COM. He holds a BSEE from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, with a concentration in microwave engineering
