Simulating a 200W L Band Push-Pull GaN Power Amplifier
Technical Education Webinar Series - Free 1 Hour Webinar
Presented by: Dr. Dominic FitzPatrick
Hosted by: Microwave Journal
Balanced amplifier approaches are popular in RF applications due to a number of implicit advantages of the topology. Using the approach in the microwave region has been challenging, mainly due to the difficulty in creating an anti-phase power splitter/combiner or Balun. This webinar will demonstrate the use of AXIEM EM simulation tools to create a 50% bandwidth planar Balun and harmonic balance simulation of a 200W GaN transistor to design a High Power Push-Pull Amplifier.
